Home For the Holidays

Home For the Holidays

Do you decorate your home for the holidays? I’m pretty basic, in that I usually just put up a tree, maybe a wreath on the front door and that’s about it.

Say hello to my so-easy-a-five-year-old-could-do-it Christmas Candy Cane Bark… Literally, this is the easiest thing I’ve ever made, and probably one of my faves. All you need is; White Chocolate Candy Cane That’s it! You can also use dark chocolate (or a mix of both), but I wanted to stick with the red and white theme for my treats.
