I purchased these mini aluminum bread pans along with a box of chocolate chip muffin mix, a bag of white, semi-sweet chocolate chips & miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips and made the little tags that I tied on. Just follow the directions on the box of the muffin mix and pour the batter into each greased bread pan about 1/2 way full. Bake a little longer than the box calls for to make muffins. When bread springs back when touched or cake tester is clean when poked into the middle of each loaf than the loaves are done.

Remove loaves from pans and let cool completely before drizzling chocolate on. Once cool, melt white chips in a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth and all chips are melted. Pour chocolate into a zip lock bag and push the melted chocolate down onto the corner of the bag. Snip off the corner of the bag and you have an instant pastry bag! Holding the bag and working quickly, go back and forth over each loaf in a zigzag motion. Repeat this same step with the semi sweet chips. Once you have both types of chocolate on, sprinkle with mini semi sweet chips and let the chocolate set completely (you can refrigerate to set). Once set, wrap each loaf in Saran Wrap and tie up with a ribbon and a tag.
