A Delicious Christmas Candy for the Whole Family!
Earlier this week, we got a gift in the mail of a tin of Peppermint chocolate bark. It has quickly become our favorite Christmas candy so far this season. The tin of Peppermint Bark that we received is from Williams-Sonoma and I would highly recommend as a great chocolate gift.
It has a layer of dark chocolate covered with a layer of white chocolate with delicious bits of peppermint sprinkled all over. The combination of flavors just work well together with the peppermint holding up nicely with the dark chocolate and vice-versa. I was not sure what kind of Christmas candy this was at first, but after the rest of my family discovered it, I was lucky to get even a bite. My daughter even insisted that I put some into her pancake. This turned out to be a great idea with the melted chocolate and mint flavor perfectly complementing the pancake.
In addition to the peppermint bark for Christmas, Williams-Sonoma carries other chocolate barks. There is the intriguing Tart Cherry Bark, with, you guessed it, tart cherries on top. But as a lover of the coconut-chocolate combination in most anything, I am ready to sample the coconut and nut chocolate bark. This bar is topped by coconut, peanuts, almonds and cashews.
Alas, what you see in the picture is all that is left of this yummy Christmas candy as of last night. I will have to get more of this quickly if we are going to have those peppermint bark pancakes for Christmas morning. If you are still looking for a nice Christmas chocolate gift idea for someone or for a party, I highly recommend this bark. And of course, I would welcome this gift for myself if you are looking to send one.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
