GAAAHHH! We’re running out of time and I have so many more recipes to share!

Okay – here are three delicious, easy recipes – one bark and two brittles – that  would make a nice addition to your holiday “sweets” mix. They all come together very quickly, with minimal measuring, fussing and clean-up.

First up is a white chocolate peppermint bark.

This is one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever come across and it is a crowd-pleaser every time. The candy canes are a nice, bright contrast to the chocolate, and keep it from getting too cloyingly sweet, as white chocolate can sometimes be.
