Hap-hap-happy weekend!! Whew this week felt long! This week’s Simple Saturday is a little different than the past ones, in that I’m sharing a super simple dessert/Christmas treat recipe instead of a meal. We could all use a 20 minute dessert this time of year, right?!
I’m on a serious peppermint kick right now, and just couldn’t pass up an opportunity (i.e. sugar craving) to make some peppermint bark. I went ahead and jazzed it up a bit by throwing in some pretzels for peppermint pretzel bark. Best. Idea. Ever. I’m always a sucker for that salty sweet combo and this is no exception.
Peppermint Pretzel Bark
This peppermint pretzel bark is so incredibly easy to make (seriously – 20 minutes!) and incredibly addictive. So addictive that I had to bring the rest into work so I would save room for other goodies I’m baking up this weekend. Also so addictive that I was accused by one of my coworkers for his weight gain. Oops. So I guess just make sure you have lots of people to share these with! Have a great weekend!
