Peppermint bark is quite possible my favorite treat to make for the holidays. Yes, I love buckeyes and peanut butter blossoms, but peppermint bark, more than anything, just screams Christmas to me. I make it ridiculously early (like, as soon as the Thanksgiving leftovers have been packed away in the fridge) and enjoy it every single day until New Year’s.

I first became enamored with peppermint bark when a boss at my first post-college job gifted a Williams-Sonoma tin to team members for the holidays. I was pretty much obsessed from the start.

I’ve been making it for nearly 10 years now and it was in desperate need of being resurrected from the depths of the archives!

The Weekend Dish: 11/28/2015


Happy post-Thanksgiving, last-Saturday-in-November!

I hope you had a great holiday on Thursday! I am still stuffed! That’s not stopping me, however, from eating leftover pecan pie. It works out incredibly well that I prefer pecan pie and my husband prefers pumpkin; there’s no overlapping when it comes to digging into leftover pie! Did you do any black Friday shopping yesterday? We stayed home and got started on some outside decorating since the weather was so nice!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!
