Christmas Bark December 27 2010, 0 Comments

This year I tired something new for the holidays.. Candy Bark.  I was looking for something that Olive and I could do together.  Bark was the perfect project.  I spread the melted chocolate and she sprinkled.  We had a blast.

We made candy cane bark, which was my absolute favorite.

orange apricot bark..

and peanut butter bark.

They were all really yummy and a fun gift to give!
