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!
