    When My Girlfriend First told me we were making these I thought that we were making bark from trees so I went out and got some. These are way more delicious than those are!!!!

    Not only do these sound delicious but they look so pretty as well ! It would be really lovely to take as a gift if you attended a dinner party – I bet that would go down very well 🙂

    Erin, I haven’t made bark candy for years. When I made desserts for fine dining restaurants I would make up patches of different types of bark that they could use to decorate the desserts. This one is perfect! It doesn’t need to dress up a dessert, it stands on its own. I bet it’s absolutely delicious.

      How clever! Decorating dessert with bark sounds delicious and pretty! This bark does stand on its own. I know that if you’re a peppermint lover, you can’t pass it up!

      It’s an easy recipe, so you can make it anytime. If you’re entertaining, make it ahead and then take it out of the fridge before guests arrive and you’re all set!
