Peppermint Bark Recipe

I love chocolate and I love peppermint and I am PRETTY obsessed with peppermint bark!

But I am NOT obsessed with the price!

When I found out how easy it is to make I was very excited. This is the perfect cooking recipe for kids to help make.

This dish is also naturally gluten – free 🙂 Got to love that

Everything you need is above – you most likely have everything in your cupboards ( you got to love that)

This recipe make enough for 3 large servings. I made a video of me making the recipe and how I package the gift ( frugally) so it would be perfect for neighbor or friends holiday gifts for not a lot out of pocket.

The recipe cost around $5 to make — so it equals about $1.70 EACH!!!! This cost even includes using Ghirardelli Chocolate. You can use dark or bittersweet chocolate – I do not suggest milk because the treat will be a little too sweet

Make sure you are following me on YouTube – I have 5 other recipe videos for you to enjoy on the channel

Here is a closeup of the final recipe — so YUMMY!!!! Everyone will love it!

If you make this recipe or any of my other ones please place them on Instagram use the #budgetsavvydiva so I can find them

Thanks! I love you guys!
