My obsession with Bark continues! My husband loves Williams Sonoma Peppermint Bark. Every year I buy him some for Christmas. It is expensive and this year we decided to make our own. We melted 9 ounces of milk chocolate. Poured it onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper and chilled it until it set - at least twenty minutes. Then I melted 12 ounces of white chocolate and poured it on top of the milk chocolate. While it was still wet I added crushed candy canes. I used my fingers to push the candy canes into the bark to help it stick. Then I chilled it again until it was set. The hardest part is waiting for it to be finished!! It is good, my husband says as good as Williams Sonoma!!
Other Christmas projects we worked on were....
Alex and his friend, Jack, decorated Gingerbread houses!
We made Nicole's from Life's a Batch's Secret Chocolate Chip Cookies which we left for Santa. I did speak to him and he loved them. I love Nicole's site and these cookies are really yummy! (not sure why the picture is sideways :0)
And last but not least, Brownie Bites! Remember the Candy Cane Kiss Brownie Bites? I changed it up a bit. We made them with mint truffle Hershey kisses in the center and Andes Candy chopped on top. Yum!
And a confession - I didn't make any Christmas sugar cookies!! Bad, bad, baker!!! I just ran out of time. It was so crazy this year!! I hope you all had a great holiday season. And that you got everything you wanted from Santa! I got two new cookbooks that I am really excited to start baking from. This next year should be full of lots of new experiments!! Happy New Year!
