Happy Saturday everyone! It’s the weekend. I hope you are getting all of your Christmas shopping done and enjoying your December weekend.
Recently, my blogger friend Mackenzie, from Mackenzie Jo and I collaborated to give y’all a special Holiday Series. Today, we are going to teach y’all how to make peppermint bark!
The story of how I first met Mackenzie is pretty funny (we think). I worked at the Clinique counter in the University bookstore while she was a senior (over a year ago) and her and her friend Gabby came to get makeovers. We had so much fun while they were there and Mackenzie was telling me about how she loves doing make up too and they asked me questions about my blog. We found out that we knew some of the same people and we connected immediately! We became friends on social media and stayed connected through that.
Since we are both bloggers in Northwest Arkansas, we wanted to take advantage of that, learn from each other, and collaborate to support each other and to give our readers a super fun series!
Believe it or not, this peppermint bark is really easy to make! It’s just time consuming. We made ours possibly a little more thick than the average bark, BUT you get more chocolate and I’m not upset about that 😉 We found that it was difficult to cut it up (of course they won’t be perfect pieces) in smaller pieces. We made the traditional peppermint bark, but we wanted to take a fun twist and make some of it like Mackenzie’s mom udoes, with dried cranberries and walnuts. You could even take your own twist on it as well and add your favorite toppings!
We can’t wait to share with you the rest of our Holiday series! Keep watch on my blog or Mackenzie’s blog for more posts coming next week! We will be giving a recipe to a holiday cranberry pineapple sparkling punch, the table settings you see above, and details on our outfits that you can wear to your holiday dinners!
