Sweet Peppermint Goodness


Nealy McKay made some Christmastime Peppermint Tree Bark for her teachers at school (she attached a gift card and…voila)! She worked really hard and added her own creative ingredient. Pretzels! It is very tasty. It is also easy breezy to make.

  • sweet and semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • candy canes
  • pretzels
  • foil and baking pan

Set your oven to 325 degrees and break candy canes into bite-size pieces. Do the same to the pretzels. Line your baking pan with foil paper and spread (liberally) a combination of sweet and semi-sweet chocolate chips evenly on the bottom of the pan. Put the pan in the oven for approximately 8-10 minutes. When the chocolate chips appear melted and soft take them out of the oven and use a butter knife to spread the chocolate out evenly. Sprinkle candy cane and pretzel bits on top. You can tap them a tiny bit to make sure they ‘sink’ in to the soft chocolate. Place the entire pan in the refrigerator to cool and harden. Once it’s completely cool, take out and break in pieces of preferred size. You can pop another pan in the oven while one is cooling and so forth. I told you it was easy! Make some of your own!
