Need a SWEET TREAT

to give your Valentine?

I’ve made this treat at Christmas time, and thought it would make a wonderful Valentine treat as well!! It’s SO simple to make and was a huge hit with my family and friends.

Makes a cute gift packaged many different ways. I put mine in celo bags, with ribbon tied around it. You could also put them in a cute tin, box or even an antique cup & saucer.

Peppermint Bark

  • 1 pound of white chocolate, chopped
  • 1 pound of bittersweet chocolate, chopped

  1. Yum. I wonder if I could try this recipe with cinnamon candies and cinnamon flavoring? Or maybe leave out the flavoring – it may be a bit too much. Thoughts?
