Food is an essential part of any holiday celebration, but the closer you get to the holidays, the more stressful preparation becomes. I don't always have time to bake all the holiday foods I want to, but I make this peppermint bark recipe at least once a year. Whether you don't have time to bake or simply love peppermint, this recipe has something for everyone.
