Hap-hap-happy weekend!!  Whew this week felt long!  This week's Simple Saturday is a little different than the past ones, in that I'm sharing a super simple dessert/Christmas treat recipe instead of a meal.  We could all use a 20 minute dessert this time of year, right?!

I'm on a serious peppermint kick right now, and just couldn't pass up an opportunity (i.e. sugar craving) to make some peppermint bark.  I went ahead and jazzed it up a bit by throwing in some pretzels for peppermint pretzel bark.  Best. Idea. Ever.  I'm always a sucker for that salty sweet combo and this is no exception.

Peppermint Pretzel Bark

This peppermint pretzel bark is so incredibly easy to make (seriously - 20 minutes!) and incredibly addictive.  So addictive that I had to bring the rest into work so I would save room for other goodies I'm baking up this weekend.  Also so addictive that I was accused by one of my coworkers for his weight gain.  Oops.  So I guess just make sure you have lots of people to share these with!  Have a great weekend!

Plenty of Peppermint Pretzel Bark ready for the holiday party

  1. This recipe sounds delicious - and easy on top of that! What size baking sheet did you use for this amount of chocolate (not a jelly roll pan?)?

    Thank you!

    1. Thanks Jeanette! Yep I just used a normal sized baking pan - a little bit smaller than a jelly roll pan. The chocolate didn't fill out the entire pan, I just spread it until it was the thickness I wanted.
