Recipe: Peppermint Bark

Hi Fashion Dolls!

Happy Hump Day! I love, love, love the holiday season and what I love just as much as shopping for goodies for my family and friends.......... is eating!!!! And not just eating anything, but eating sweets! I love sweets: chocolate, cupcakes, ice name it! I wanted to post one of my favorite recipes for this time of year, which feeds my sweet tooth time and time again, and that's Peppermint Bark. One of my good friends taught my how to make this and it tastes delicious and it's super easy to make. Even with my minimal cooking skills, I'm able to impress all my friends and family with this sweet treat every year.


  • Crushed candy canes
  • 2 bars of white chocolate and/or dark chocolate 
  • Peppermint extract 


Place candy canes in a plastic bag and hammer into dime-sized chunks or smaller. 
Melt the chocolate in a sauce pan. 
Combine candy cane chunks with chocolate (add peppermint flavoring at this point) 
Pour mixture onto a cookie sheet layered with parchment paper.
Place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes or until firm. Remove from cookie sheet and break into pieces (like peanut brittle.)

It should look something like this!

They sell peppermint bark everywhere, but it truly is easy to make yourself. Give it a try and let me know how it comes out. And send me some while you're at it! LOL just kidding

Happy Holidays Dolls!

Holiday Wishlist

Good morning!

Hope everyone is off to a great start this morning. I know I am! I have family coming in town at the end of this week and I am so excited! I've been trying to get my house together.........I'm not the cleanest person in the world, but i'm not filthy either. I just have tons of stuff, namely clothes & shoes, everywhere! Though, that shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone! lol. Anyway, I realized that I never posted a 'favorites' for the month of November so in keeping with the holiday theme for December, I decided to do a holiday 'wishlist' instead of a 'favorites'.

Holiday Wishlist

This wishlist includes a few of my favorites and a few things that I'm coveting at the moment. They're also great gift ideas as well, if you're shopping for a fashionista at heart. 

1. ShoeMint: "ZOE" Studded Heel $79.98
These are the perfect shoe for any holiday party!

2. KA'OIR Cosmetics: "Gorgeous" Lipstick $15.99
The deep pink is so great for olive or deep tones. It looks so great on.

3. Juicy Couture:  Leopard Ipad Case  $57.99 (on sale)
I lovvve leopard, need I say more?!

4. Lori's Shoes: Magazine Clutch $58.95
The cutest clutch ever! Definitely a must for any fashionista's closet!

5. Wen by Chaz Dean: Hair Care $29.89
I love this line of Hair products already, my hair feels amazing and I don't feel like I'm stripping it of all its nutrients. 

6. Forever 21: Gift Card  $***
Who doesn't love a bargain? I know I do. Why not give your fashionista friend, mother or sister the gift that keeps on giving with a shopping spree. It's not impersonal for the woman who loves to shop! 

So what's on your Holiday Wishlist? Share and be social.......

Thanks for visiting! 
Yours Truly,
