Peppermint bark time!

DSC_0548

I’ve never had much of a sweet tooth, but over the last few years I fallen in love with peppermint bark as a holiday treat.  The simplicity of the ingredients let’s me focus on using really good quality chocolate which is great for flavor and keeps the sweetness factor in check.  However, I’ve found that the real magic is adding rice krispies to the white chocolate layer.  It creates a subtle crunch that gives this holiday treat a special something, and everyone who tries them always remarks about how much they love the crunch.  We have multiple family holiday gatherings next week and I’m planning to make a few batches to share.

Here is a link to the original recipe over at Shutterbean and here is the more in depth write-up I did about peppermint bark last year.
