You know if it’s after Hanukkah I’m looking to melt some Hanukkah gelt! Like I’ve written before, there is something about melting gelt that makes it taste so much better. When in gelt form, the chocolate is so dry and flavorless, but when melted it tastes like the finest Belgian chocolate. No fooling. You tell me if I’m wrong. Anyway, this year the kosher candy store where I  buy my gelt only had pareve gelt, much to the disappointment of some kids at my Hanukkah party (yes, I refrained from “In my day, we were happy to get any gelt at all” even though I was very tempted.) In previous years I’ve made 4 fruits bark, fondue, and used it as icing, but this year I was feeling particularly woodsy so I was just going to melt it down and make it bark-like with a bit of texture. It is super easy to do and makes a great Tu b’Shevat craft project.
