Gooey cinnamon bears covered in smooth and creamy chocolate.
cinnamon bears (available in many grocery stores in the candy aisle, also found in bulk)
almond bark* (see note)
aluminum foil or parchment paper
Chop almond bark into 1-2 inch pieces. Place in a heat-safe bowl and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir and return to microwave for 20 seconds at a time, stirring after each, until smooth.
Stick a toothpick into a cinnamon bear, dip into chocolate, turning to completely cover the cinnamon bear. Shake off excess chocolate. Place bear on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet OR poke the toothpick into a foil-covered floral foam block so that the bear is standing upright. (This is what I like to do so that the bears do not have a flat edge on the back, it is purely for looks and completely optional).
Allow bears to cool completely (about 15-20 mins). Sore in airtight container at room temperature.
