Step 1:

Break you chocolate bar along the 3 vertical lines, creating 4 smaller bars (with 4 squares each). I got mine from the candy aisle of the grocery store. Use a sharp knife to straighten the edges if desired.

For the inscription color you can use plain powdered sugar for a white engraving, or tint the powdered sugar for a festive touch with some gel food coloring/icing color. Try red, green, blue, or any holiday color.

To tint powdered sugar, simply add a tiny bit of food coloring to a small bowl of powdered sugar and mix together, adding more coloring, until you have reached your desired shade. A little powdered sugar goes a long way (about 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar per giant 4.4oz. bar). I used my fingers to coat the powdered sugar in the coloring (you might want to wear a glove so the food coloring doesn't stain your fingers).

Once you have reached your desired color, sift the powdered sugar to remove any clumps, so it is back to its normal powdery consistency.

Step 3:
