The holidays can be a wonderful, yet stressful time. Buying presents in crowded stores filled with last-minute shoppers (a.k.a. me today at World Market on a Sunday night which was complete chaos), traveling near and far to visit friends and family, various holiday gatherings where you’re asked to bring a dessert. You get it, all a little stressful. The good news is I’m here to help! Well, at least with the last one. I have the perfect dessert for your holiday parties this season. You’ve seen it everywhere; It’s peppermint bark. Super simple and always loved by everyone at all the parties I go to. Who knew four ingredients could taste so good? I love how easy this is to pull together for a last minute get together and the candy canes make it look super impressive! This recipe is definitely a keeper when I’m feeling a little stressed out and busy during the holidays! Enjoy!
