Christmas Peppermint Bark

hello mafia, how are you going?
it's laura here to share a little christmas joy with you.

i have been getting deeply into the christmas spirit recently. my house smells like christmas & is starting to look like santa's work shop, the only thing missing is the elf ... i might have to order an elf costume for my friends little puppy who is staying with us, that'd be cute right?

i made this bark recently and i've made a second batch today so i thought i'd give you a simple recipe to make from the important people in your life. this makes a perfect gift for your family, your friends, your neighbour, your doorman, your mailman, your friendly dog walker or yourself.

to see my santa picture, go over here.
