I've made this recipe a couple times during the holidays starting a few years ago. I was making gifts for the neighbors and coworkers that included things like homemade dog treats, ornaments, homemade jam, etc... and I wanted to include something sweet. After seeing the price of peppermint bark at Williams Sonoma I knew I couldn't afford to buy it for everyone but I really liked the sound of it. So I looked for a recipe and I found this one by Paula Deen on Food Network.
It was very easy to make and I still requests for it. I just break it into chunks, put into cellophane bags(available at craft store like Michaels) or paper bags and tie with a bow.
