Salted Peppermint Bark

Salted Peppermint Bark

I’ve been on a real Williams Sonoma kick recently. I mean, I’ve always loved their stuff, but recently I’ve been unable to stop myself from making a purchase every single time I walk through the door.  It started when I went in early November and they were giving out samples of the most delicious stuffing and gravy that I have ever tasted! So good that we had to buy both products.  We also got to sample THREE types of peppermint bark: regular peppermint bark, dark chocolate peppermint bark, and salted peppermint bark.

The salted peppermint bark was so amazingly delicious that the first thing I said was “I have to make this!” I honestly thought it would be super easy and I would whip up a batch and it would be so amazing, but it turns out even the easiest recipes take a few rounds of testing! Don’t worry, though. I did the experimenting for you and have created the perfect salty sweet combo! And as an added bonus, it’s super easy to make! The hardest part of the recipe is making enough freezer space for it!
