Since my friend Paul sold Eat My Kookies, my espresso go-to place down the hill, things havnt been the same. In my quest for decent strong coffee I now walk the dog to Peets about 15 minutes away. I am not in the habit of endorsing store-bought treats but their two-tone peppermint bark is just stupidly good. Unbelievable what a dark chocolate base can do for a candy standard. I cant find a recipe but check out the photo and replicate - its just chocolate/s, peppermint oil and smashed up candy canes. And its the BEST!
UPDATE: I made my own 2-tone peppermint bark. It melts too easily to give as gifts. Stick with Peets.
