You may have noticed that things have been a little sporadic around here lately. I apologize for the slower than usual responses to emails and lack of consistent posting the last two weeks. I can finally tell you why things aren’t normal. We’re moving! That means that while my tiny house fills up with boxes, my inbox fills up just as quickly! I promise that I’m getting back to you as quickly as possible! We are moving this weekend, so no promises of quick responses until next week! 🙂
The last few weeks have been filled with house hunting and lots of hours spent on the road between here and Minnesota! However, I have had time to make a few quick Christmas treats and this peppermint mocha bark was one of them. I made this bark a few days before Thanksgiving so I could bring the rest up to share with my mom when we went up for the holiday (and while we were there, I discovered it goes perfectly with a cup of coffee in the afternoon!).
It only takes 4 ingredients and about 10 minutes of prep. Melt your chocolates, swirl them together, sprinkle with crushed peppermint and espresso powder, and refrigerate. That is all. Have last minute guests or forgot that you need to bring something to a holiday party? Quick throw this candy together and let it cool while you get ready. Even if you are in the midst of purging, packing, and cleaning, you still will have time to make a quick batch of this peppermint mocha bark!
