I think that Grace and I have it narrowed down....what sort of treat to take to our neighborhood exchange. Something pepperminty...that was agreed upon. This is a recipe that our dear friend B.H always makes. It is easy and good. Two words I LOVE when it comes to recipes!
1 bag white chocolate chips
A good handful (or so) of peppermints (or 2-3 candy canes)
Some people add nuts. If your family is nuts like mine...erp...I mean, EATS nuts like mine, it is a nice addition. Ahem.
Melt the white chocolate chips over low heat until smooth. Spread wax paper on a cookie sheet or brownie pan.
Spread white chocolate on wax paper with a spatula.
You can swirl in a bit of red food coloring for added color OR add more for pink bark!
Crush the peppermints or candy canes with a mallet. Ball bat. Sledgehammer. Whatever.
Sprinkle peppermint on top and put in refrigerator until cool and hardened.
Pull candy from fridge and carefully break up into pieces.
Could not be easier and really is delicious!
Okay. That decision is out of the way....on to the 2879 others!
