Peppermint Bark

Peppermint Bark

Peppermint Bark, oh so easy!

If you love Candy Canes and Chocolate, then this is the perfect treat for the holidays! Not only does it look amazing, but it is super easy to make and you can whip  batch up quickly.

This is a pretty addition to a cookie or sweet tray. It would also make a lovely gift presented in a mason jar with a pretty label and ribbon.

This year we are packing up some pretty boxes with some of this peppermint bark and some Crunchy Snow Mounds as gifts for friends and teachers.

Peppermint Bark

This is such an easy holiday treat. You can play with the layers, using different variations. White, Dark and then White again. Put peppermint extract only in one of the layers, to help accent the flavour of the candy canes.
