|My Peppermint Concoctions...and a little card I designed.|
I have a secret....I am NOT a baker. I have tried, and really wish I was, but I burn the easiest cookies. It is actually a blessing during the rest of the year because this girl loves to EAT bake goods! Anyway, this time of year makes me uber stressed, b/c I think I SHOULD bake, but it always turns into a disaster....disappointment, and a mad dash to the store! You see I am not a rule follower, and for those that know how to bake, know it is a science and you MUST follow the rules. Oh, and baking takes planning, and I am not really good at that either!
Sooooooo, instead of my dreams of baked goods filling up my kitchen during the holidays. I resort to the old standby of peppermint bark. I twisted the recipe up a bit and made some fun peppermint treats for neighbors, friends, and family. (as you could see from my last post, I had an abundance of peppermints, candycanes, etc.) So this is what I did this afternoon, for an Christmas Neighborhood Playdate.... Nothing like a little bit of last minute!
Easy Peasy Peppermint Bark.
A package (or 2 or 3 or 5) of White Chocolate Melted
Spread on a sheet pan, pop in the freezer.
Variations on the Ol' Standby
|Dip these in a bit of white chocolate...or dark, or green, blue would have been pretty too!|
|Dip the melt in your mouth mints in green chocolate....|
|what to do with left over green chocolate....DRIZZLE of course!|
Merry Christmas to All!
