Making Bark is so easy, especially once you figure out how to handle combining the ingredients.
It is simple to make it look as pretty in reality as it is in your idea.
At the market a few weeks ago I bought enough food to bake for three holidays!
I have ample cupboard space for baking supplies.
But when you consider baking isn’t the only cooking going on in the kitchen then it becomes cramped.
Having more than one cook in the home also limits space.
What I really need is 2 pantries. A girl can dream.
This two layer bark was a snap once I decided to let it congeal on a foil lined counter.
I put it covered in the garage over night to get it hard enough to break up.
Being cold out there helped a lot.
Combining an Andes Mint Chocolate bottom with a white chocolate top was a great idea.
The bottom layer stayed soft a few hours longer than I thought it would.
This pretty little bark was a hit at the last family gathering at Christmas. It was just decorated with red and green sprinkles instead of candy hearts.
The Andes mint taste of this Sweetheart Bark combined with the white chocolate was so delicious I am dreaming of an encore! St Paddy’s perhaps? Topped with Sweetheart Candy or M&M’s this is a winner!
If you like Divinity you are going to love this fudge! And it is softer to eat since it almost melts in your mouth!
Sugar, white chocolate, marshmallow cream, vanilla, butter, and walnuts are all you need.
Sweetheart Fantasy Fudge makes a great gift during the holidays.
In less than 15 minutes you can have your pantry cleaned out of a few extras as well as satisfying your sweet tooth.
This was one of the first recipes I made with my granddaughter. I think she was 4 or 5 at the time.
The hardest part of the creation process was trying to keep her from grabbing the boiling fudge.
To this day she is always saying “I can do it grandma”. Somehow she was born with a stubborn streak. I wonder who would give her that?
This fudge is a great gift for a sick friend or welcome that new neighbor. Even an auction or bake sale would have no trouble selling it.
Don’t forget to make enough to keep at home in your sweet jar!
When I take this fudge to a Holiday Get Together is gets chosen as the walk and grab snack on the table.
It easy to eat without a plate and all the remaining crumbs are easy to eat from a napkin. You can even still hold your drink in the other hand.
Don’t forget to make a batch for home. This will keep your family out of the plate you are planning on for the party! Enjoy!
Are you tired of Red Velvet recipes yet?
Here is one that is not real sweet and different from the rest.
This Cupid’s Lasagna is a vibrant Red brownie layer under a thin cream cheese filling.
Then to topping off the dessert is a layer of cheesecake pudding blended into a whipped cream mixture!
To make it festive, a layer of broken Red Cream Cheese Oreos sits a top the entire mix.
This light, creamy dessert is not sweet, but feel free to add more garnish if you wish!
You are going to love this treat!
This lasagna didn’t last long in my home.
The kids loved how light the brownies were.
And when they see a cookie they come running.
Including wait time you can be enjoying this Cupid’s Lasagna in less than 45 minutes!
And have faith, the Green Velvet recipes are just around the corner!
Anyone that has followed my blog knows how much I love a good breakfast.
Nutritionists say a good breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
It jumpstarts your metabolism and fuels your body with the necessary energy to get your brain ready for learning and your muscles for getting through a rough day.
I love a good turtle recipe. And I love anything that combines caramel and chocolate. I even have a tag for it on the blog.
Combining these wonderful flavors with a good toasted waffle is genius.
I just wish I had thought of it first!
The fresh seasonal fruit adds another texture and brings out the cinnamon flavor.
The combination of flavors just never ends.
Well, even though this french toast is just a tiny bit, ok, a medium Bit, OK a lot decadent, they will still give you a jumpstart.
And if you are like me, a nap shortly after. Enjoy! (That nap!)
