All good things must come to an end, sure. But when they return? It’s quite the thrill.
In this case, the passage of time has made the heart grow fonder. The cooling temperatures have us pining for warmth and seeking out seasonal flavors. In this case, peppermint bark is just the thing.
There’s just something about this holiday creation that makes it special. Perhaps it’s the cool, crisp sensation. Or the sweet layers of rich dark chocolate and creamy white chocolate, topped with crushed peppermint.
There’s some magic in there.
One thing is for certain: it doesn’t last long. Available only a few months of the year and, understandably, it tends to do a disappearing act in large crowds. Pair it with dark sipping chocolate or just savor it, one square at a time.
There’s no wrong way to indulge.
