Christmas time is here again!

Monday, December 23, 2013

Hello Everyone,
   I think I am just realizing that tomorrow is Christmas Eve! Wow! It happened so fast! Today we went to the library. We also did some last minute shopping (which turned out to be mostly snacks). ;)
I think that it is more fun to slowly eat some of the Christmas goodies than just eating it all on Christmas day! I like sitting around watching "The Nativity Story", eating snacks, snuggling, and trying to get a seat next to Mom or Dad. ;) It is all fun!

On Christmas Eve we will move the tree into our living room and decorate it will all the ornaments! That's always a lot of fun. Have you ever had peppermint bark? It is sooooooo delicious! Of course anything with chocolate has to be delicious! I just love it! It is something that we have been making for Christmas for a few years now, after we found the recipe! Here's the recipe for it. It melts in your mouth!

          Holiday peppermint bark (32 servings)
1 (12 ounce) package of white chocolate chips
1 package chocolate chips
1-2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon peppermint oil 

24 hard peppermint candies

Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt chocolate chips in microwave for 1 minute. Spread chocolate on pan and chill in fridge, Pulse peppermints in food processor (leave some large pieces, ) microwave white chocolate with 1-2 Tablespoons vegetable oil, add 1/2 teaspoon peppermint flavoring, candies and oil to white chocolate. Make sure that the chocolate layer is really cold before adding white chocolate. Let it stand 1 hour or until firm. Break into pieces. Store in container, and you have to sneak a piece or two. ;) 

It's a great Christmas treat! We have already made ours for Christmas and we will eat part of it as a snack on Christmas Eve too! :)
I am eating peppermint bark as I type this! Haha! It's so good!

What kind of treats do you make for Christmas?

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

In Christ,
