One day, Mint met a girl named Chocolate.
He was a boy, she was a girl...can I make it any more obvious? (Thanks, Avril).
They fell in love and got married.
The world has been a better place ever since.
Do you understand the moral of this half-baked fairy tale? Let me make it as clear as possible to you:
Hi, my name's Katie and I'm a peppermint barkaholic.
It started with Williams Sonoma peppermint bark several years back. Mm mm good.
However, this goodness comes with a price...a price that is right around $20 per tin.
I've tried making peppermint bark. Believe me, I've tried. It's all right, edible and all, but just not as good. Not as good.
BUT this year...I have discovered two - yes, TWO - acceptable alternatives that do not - do NOT - cost $20.
No, neither one is the Williams Sonoma stuff...but they are both chocolaty, minty, and downright yummy.
If you're like me, and peppermint and chocolate rocks your world, try these. I predict that you will like them.
And if you don't like them, e-mail me and I'll send you my address so you can send me the leftovers.
