Sweet part of the Holidays

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.

Peppermint bark

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.

    that looks wonderful! we did something similar except you take big pretzel sticks and dip them in the chocolate and then sprinkle the crushed candy canes on top. My favorite cookies are called chocolate crinkles. a soft chocolate cookie rolled in powdered sugar before it bakes. So it kind of cracks open when it cooks. so YUM! :)
