I bark for the holidays

How is everyone’s holiday going?  For myself, its cool.

Now another love as mentioned from last week is making bark which is a personal tradition I have started within my own home during the holidays.  For those who can’t make it out, I make a point to ship some out to them.  Hope everyone enjoyed their packages!

Traditions can be fun and of course there are some traditions that seem a little off.  You have regular fun ones and then there are the super superstitious ones.  Nevertheless, as long as they make sense to you that is all that matters. My favorite ones were from my grandmother who always stressed the man had to walk through the home first and making sure to eat fish, black eye peas and something green…and yes I’ve added the bark <chuckle>.

Well, for whatever it is that you choose to do or no longer wish to do, I hope it brings joy to your home as ours does for us.  And as for making bark, which brings me joy, do know there are all kinds you can make.  There’s peppermint, m&m, caramel, dark chocolate and the list goes on and guess what?  There’s a simple recipe down below.

RECIPE:

Bark

Try melting a package of chocolate chips in a saucepan on low heat with a teaspoon of oil.  Constantly stirring, mix in a 1 cp or as much as you want of candies, pretzels, nuts or whatever you prefer.  Poor evenly onto a cookie sheet lined with either wax paper or foil and refrigerate for about 10 minuets.
