    I worked this summer at a small business and had wonderful coworkers. I would like to bring something in as a "thank you". There are about 12 employees all together. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    Maybe bake something nice and put it out for everyone with a note? :)

    I'd do food. Maybe something simple (to bring and enjoy) like cookies.

    Ok, I lied...5 ingredients:




    Salted Caramel Pretzel Bark

    Ingredients
    1 8-ounce bag of mini pretzels
    1 cup (2 sticks) butter
    1 cup light brown sugar
    2 11.5-ounce bags semi-sweet chocolate chunks
    Sea salt, to taste
    Instructions
    Preheat oven to 350F.
    Then line large cookie sided cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Place pretzels in a single layer.
    In a medium saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar until the sugar is dissolved, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens into a thick, bubbly caramel, approximately 7 minutes.Remove from heat and pour evenly over the top of the pretzels.Place the cookie sheet in the oven for 5 minutes.
    Meanwhile, in a double boiler (or an heat-safe bowl over simmering water–do not let water touch the bottom of the bowl), melt chocolate.
    Remove pretzel and caramel mixture from the oven and drizzle the chocolate over the top, spreading evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle with sea salt.
    Refrigerate at least one hour. When cool and hardened, break bark into bite-sized pieces.


    I used a silpat instead of parchment. Next time I might melt chocolate in double boiler and pour over instead of melting in oven.:p

    I agree. Bake something. Go to the Dollar Store and get containers and maybe some notecards. Write a personal note to each of them with a small container of cookies etc.. That pretzel bark someone else posted sounds awesome.

    I would be careful of anything with nuts though since so many are allergic or have family members who are.
