Hey everyone, my name is Megan and I write over a NEPA MOM. I am a homeschooling mom of 5 who write about making life easier for busy families with Tips, Recipes, Reviews and More. I am so excited that Christina is letting me share one of my kids favorite snacks…and you won’t believe how easy it is!
My kids all love chocolate and who can blame them? What isn’t there to like about chocolate?
Every Christmas I make Peppermint Bark and it always gets gobbled up in no time. Well. as you all know Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and I decided to take our Christmas treat and turn it into an Easy Valentine’s Day treat for the ones I love!
When I say this recipe is easy, I’m not kidding. It is super simple, the hardest part is waiting for it to harden in the freezer and it is easily customizable for any holiday or special occasion. You can also use white chocolate chips instead of or in addition to the chocolate chips and then just change out the toppings. Crushed peppermints work great for Christmas, green sprinkles are great for St. Patrick’s Day, spring color sprinkles are great for Easter…well you get the idea!
I hope you enjoy this simple treat as much as we do!
