Peppermint Bark Recipe with Holiday Shapes

Peppermint bark is one of those desserts that just seems to spell Christmas.

Serve this bark with a glass of chocolate milk or some hot chocolate for an even more special chocolate experience.

You could even leave some peppermint bark out for Santa on Christmas Eve! If you have kids hoping to be on Santa’s nice list, make sure to check out our posts with Santa’s address and the official Santa phone number.
