Holiday Peppermint Bark

Here are a few Pictures of the Holiday Peppermint Bark that I made this Evening. It Turned out really well and it taste WONDERFUL. It is so Simple to make here is the Recipe...

Holiday Peppermint Bark

1 cup of Crushed candy canes

2 Pounds of White Chocolate

Peppermint flavoring (to taste)

Place candy canes in a plastic bag and hammer into 1/4 inch pieces or smaller (I choose smaller).Melt the Chocolate in a double boiler. Combine candy cane chunks with Chocolate (add peppermint flavoring at this point if desired.) Pour Mixture onto a cookie sheet layered with waxed paper and place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes or until firm. Remove from cookie sheet and break into pieces (like peanut brittle.)


Christmas Cookie's

Hope you all have had a great week!
Yesterday Katie and I made some Homemade Sugar Cookie's, we
decorated them with different colors of Icing's and Sprinkles.
We really don't like sugar cookies. we actually just like mixing all of the different
dye's to get a certain color of Icing and you know just having fun with them.
Here are a few pictures.
