My husband's been out of town for a few days, so we missed celebrating father's day with him.  I decided my son and I should make him a delicious treat for when he comes home today.  Voila, peppermint bark:

I've never made any kind of bark before.  I decided to make peppermint bark since I had a bunch of old candy canes left over from christmas sitting in my kitchen drawer.

I know peppermint bark is nothing new, but I decided to amp up the taste by using super high quality chocolate in place of the almond bark and chocolate chips I saw in many recipes.  I used Moser Roth 70% cocoa dark chocolate and Choceur white chocolate, both from ALDI.  Their chocolate isn't expensive, but it's made in Germany and the quality rivals any fine chocolate I've ever tasted!

I couldn't believe how easy this project was, and how delicious the result turned out.  It's been hard to keep myself from eating it all before my husband gets home!  You can bet I'll be making this to give out as gifts at Christmas.  I've had the Williams Sonoma chocolate peppermint bark before, and I think this is at least as good if not better, due to the excellent chocolate.  Rather than reinvent the wheel, here is a recipe for peppermint bark:  http://candy.about.com/od/specialoccasions/r/pepbark.htm

Yum, yum, yum. <rummages in cupboard to try to find ingredients> Oh, well. The shops are open tomorrow.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
