A Mean Bark

HorrorFFF A Mean BarkLeslie of The Hungry Housewife has told me repeatedly how easy it is to make peppermint bark.  This year, I decided to give it a shot after refusing to take out a loan to purchase Williams-Sonoma’s lovely stash or waiting for it to be marked down.  After all, I need to brag about eating peppermint bark to Karen for our Friday Food Fight and I can’t wait for it to go on clearance to do it.


So, I decided to follow Leslie’s advice and her recipe and I made my own batch of peppermint bark.  It really was so easy and soooooooo good.  It even passed Iron Chef Allan’s taste test.

Look! I even put it in a fancy tin!

    I’ve never considered making my own peppermint bark before seeing yours. WS is one of my favorite places but I think I’ll find some pretty tins of my own to fill with some of these budget friendly goodies.

    I make my peppermint bark with crushed oreos as the base. I think I may just have to add them to some melted chocolate. Even yummier! ;)
