The next few days will be a whirlwind for most of us, filled with family and friends and giving. Luckily, our days will also be filled with one of my favorite treats this time of year.
I make ours gluten, egg, and dairy free. I have to special order our candy canes every year from here. I have not found a source for these locally, but since it is once a year, I suck it up and buy a few boxes of them.
Luckily, our local supermarket carries our Enjoy Life chocolate chips which are gluten and dairy free.
I add a little bit of peppermint extract to the chocolate after it is melted. Then I pour it into a sprayed pan, and sprinkle the crushed candy cane bits on top.
Easy and delicious! I should know. I actually found out the answer to “How much peppermint bark is too much for one belly to hold?”.
Totally worth it.
