How freaking addicting is peppermint bark? And pretty, so so pretty. It is so simple to make but so difficult to put down. Peppermint bark always makes me think of William’s Sonoma and those cute red and white tins. (again with the tins, I have an issue I think) They always have it out as samples during the holidays along with the insanely good hot chocolate and I never know if it’s acceptable to go back for more than one. I feel guilty so I usually never go back. I have the same issue at Costco. Or I’ll stand there and talk to the lady giving out samples and act like I’m really interested in getting the dumplings or the mini pizzas or the biscotti. I just want the sample lady to feel like she’s doing a good job. I’m a people pleaser, it’s an issue.
You can go buy the peppermint bark at Williams Sonoma OR you can make your own, give it as gifts to friends and family and feel fabulous from all the compliments you’ll get. (buy a cute tin at Hobby Lobby, they’ll never know the difference).
This stuff is super simple, very few ingredients. If I have one tip, it would be to use a higher quality chocolate/white chocolate. I would recommend the Ghiradelli chocolates, insanely good and easy to melt.
