Yummy Peppermint Bark ♥

If you've been following me for a little while, you'll know that I'm not much of a baker, cooker, or anything in the kitchen-er. This isn't to say, however, that I don't try to cook! Maybe 10 years from now, I'll have a whole cooking section on my blog dedicated to all of my yummy creations, but until then, I'm all about keeping things as simple as possible so that I can't possibly mess things up!


One of my favorite holiday treats ispeppermint bark, and this year, I decided to try making my own for a change! I went with one of the simplest recipes from All Recipes andam so happy with the results! This was so easy to make - it'd be the perfect treat to bring to a last minute holiday party or for anyone who is inept at cooking like I am!


For this recipe you will need:

  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • 8 oz white chocolate
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 25 peppermint candies (crushed)

You simply melt the semisweet chocolate (with a little mint extract and canola oil), spread it onto the bottom of a pan, wait for it to cool, do the same with the white chocolate, and sprinkle crushed peppermint candies on the top!  Okay, I think it might be a little more complicated than that but it was incredibly simple.  See the recipe (here) for more detailed instructions!


What are your favorite easy-to-make holiday treats? I'd love to try them out!
