Bark the Herald Angels Sing...

Bark. the herald angels sing.  Peppermint, and chocolate things!

Yea. I just said that. and I didn't erase it.  I could have.  I could have taken that sentence away, and no one would ever know.  But I feel like we should be honest with each other, that's what friends do after all.  And I honestly just said that.  I actually sang it.

What cha think about them apples (err, nuts?)

See, I could have erased that too...

No one would ever be able to do a recap of Amuse Bouche with "the shit they should have shown" because I show it all.

Peppermint Bark

1 cup crushed candy canes
2 pounds white chocolate
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
Optional 4 ounces dark, bittersweet, or semisweet chocolate

Place candy canes in a plastic bag and hammer into 1/4-inch chunks or smaller.

Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler. 

Combine candy cane chunks with chocolate and peppermint extract. Pour mixture onto a cookie sheet layered with waxed paper, and drizzle the melted dark chocolate if desired.  

Place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes or until firm. 

Remove from cookie sheet and break into pieces (like peanut brittle.)

And toss them into a box with the rest of the butter/carbs/fat you made this week. 




  1. We love you because you went there with the song. And you use good chocolate. And you make fabulous bark.

  2. That box of cookies was amazing!
