I kept seeing the peppermint bark when the Nestle page came up so I thought I'd try it.  I got some white morsels out of my fridge, smashed some candy canes and in a few minutes had candy.

Judy -- I agree that the peppermint bark is fast, easy and delicious.   I like all barks for those reasons.

This sounds easy enough for me to make for some last minute gifts of goodies

I am doing a bark but with the dark chips and smoked almonds.  Sounds rather strange but the flavors are great together.

For my bark, I love to toast whole almonds and mix into white chocolate. I also like to crush up some lemon drops and add to the white chocolate.

White chocolate and almonds sounds great. I'll have to buy more white morsels.  I like them better than the big hunks of bark stuff.

We were at a party this weekend and someone brought the cutest little snowmen.  they were NutterButters mixed with cream cheese inthe food processor,   made into ball,  frozen for a bit then dipped in melted white chocolate. She had put faces on them and topped them with a tiny oreo for a hat.   Very clever and quite tasty.

Another easy candy is Truffles.
Cream and Chocolate.  Can't get much easier than that.

Nikki,  We love the smoked almonds. The $2.99 a lb. on almonds this past weekend were for
salted and no salt.  Normally they would do all except the raw!!  I'm going to try these. Thanks
for the great idea.

I was going to try to send a picture of the little snowman, but Mozilla foxfire isn't working well tonight.  I really wish VBB would get my probem solved so i could use internet explorer like I used to.

since i have a whole bunch of fresh nuts from my local nut wholesaler---i'm making dark choc with pecans for my b-i-l -------------walnuts for me-----------and some semi-sweet   the same----most of my family will not try dark choc

i also picked up some sweetened dried cranberries and they are wonderful----------they had them in a  snack mix with walnuts, pecans and almonds but they used nut halves and i have a problem chewing into halves and i was already buying walnut and pecans already chopped i picked up a bag of these and mixed some myself----------i like almonds----but i find them so hard to eat
