peppermint bark


So delicious, creamy and smooth with a crunchy peppermint crunch! This was so fun to make and easy. The fun thing about this is that you can make it anyway you want. I used milk chocolate (my favorite) and white chocolate and swirled it together giving a marble look and of course topped it with crushed peppermints. I added peanuts because I love them, but you could add marshmallows, any kind of nut, dried fruits, whatever you like. Try making several different kinds and give as and your friends will love them.
