During the Christmas holiday one year my son (yes, you know who you are) decided that his favorite holiday candy was peppermint bark. I had bought several tins of it from Williams Sonoma to give as Christmas gifts. After lugging the heavy bag home from the mall, I decided I had earned the right to open one of them and indulge. Crazy good!
The next morning the tin was empty (yep, you know who you are 😀). It was then that I decided it would be easier, cheaper, lighter (to carry), and much more fun to make Minty Chocolatey Peppermint Bark myself.
Wes (oops) loved the homemade peppermint bark just as much as the purchased bark and now I make it for him every season.
This candy has also become one of my favorite gifts to give during the holidays! I love bringing it as a hostess gift in a cute jar or dish.
