So, it’s been a gloomy few days.
I had a demoralizing week towards the end of October and then the election came in and blew us all away… suffice it to say I wasn’t in the best of moods and so, my most efficient emotional outlet is always to cook or bake, and so we arrive at the Holiday season: with peppermint bark.
I am a moderate fan of peppermint bark but I do consider it quite beautiful and appropriate for the holiday. I’m not the biggest fan of working with chocolate though, so I’ve never made it before. Since I was desperate for some of the emotional relief of baking I went ahead and made it anyway lol so the good thing is, if anyone reads this you might learn from my mistakes!
