#ChristmasWeek Santa's Favorite Holiday Bark...and a #Freund Giveaway!

Welcome to Day #3 of Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen from Juanita's Cocina! Each day we will be celebrating the holidays with a different set of Christmas-themed treats, as well as a fabulous Christmas giveaway. We hope you enjoy this fabulous event. Tune in each day starting Monday, December 9th, and ending Saturday, December 14th.

Today I'm sharing Santa's Favorite Holiday Bark, a no-bake treat that's festive and full of festive holiday flavors and colors! If you can melt chocolate, you can whip this candy up in about 20 minutes...then let it set in the fridge for another 30 minutes. This is great for last-minute hostess gifts and teacher presents...or anyone who's a peppermint fiends like me. Feel free to sub in whatever holiday toppings you's a flexible and fun recipe!
Santa's Favorite Holiday Bark
a Weekend Gourmet Original

  • 1o-ounce bag dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peppermint mini marshmallows
  • 1 bag of white chocolate-peppermint melting discs or baking chips
  • 8 mint-flavored cream-filled cookies
  • 8 ounces mint candy-coated chocolate candies
  • Festive holiday sprinkles of your choice
Step 1: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt the chocolate chips in a bowl via the microwave in 30-second intervals. Stir and repeat until the chocolate chips are melted. Let cool slightly, then stir in the marshmallows and stir to careful that they don't melt. Melt the peppermint candy discs and spread on top of the dark chocolate. Using a spatula, swirl the two together.
Step 2: Chop the cookies into quarters and evenly distribute on top of the chocolate. Add the chocolate candies and sprinkles to the top of the bark as well. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens, about 30 minutes. Break into pieces and serve.
This minty bark is pretty much instant holiday gratification! My schedule is so busy during the holidays that I need lots of quick-make goodies in my bag of tricks! I love the color an flavor of this easy bark. Each bite is like a mini holiday gift. Santa would be thrilled to find a plate of this awesome bark when he stops by to fill your stockings in a couple of weeks.
