Easy Holiday Treat

Its December and its time to indulge in some peppermint candy canes!
I have come across loads of 'bark' recipes around this time of year.

And so far I managed to resist making them for just one reason, white chocolate!
I used to be a fan of white chocolate, but of late, I find white chocolate is just a little too sweet for my liking. 

 Blame it on the tastebud that has changed as I aged!!
This year, I brave myself and am sharing this homemade White Chocolate Peppermint Bark!

White Chocolate Peppermint Bark

What is Peppermint Bark?

Peppermint bark is a chocolate confectionary consists of candy canes and chocolates.

The original peppermint bark would have a layer of dark chocolate with a layer of white chocolate on top, and finish off with sprinkling crushed candy canes on top of white chocolate layer.

But I am all so NOT into originals :P

Hence my White Chocolate Peppermint Bark is here :D.
