Easy homemade snowflake peppermint bark recipe from @bakedbyrachel

There are exactly twenty four days left until Christmas! Are you freaking out yet? Since it’s December first I decided to start the month with a fun memory and giveaway. Let’s jump right into the spirit of things shall we?

If you’ve been stopping by for at least a year, you might remember these.

I had to redo them. Well, I didn’t have to but I really wanted to! They’re way too cute and fun to pass up making. I think they’ll become a yearly tradition. The girls were dying to grab them and take a bite.

Since making them last year I’ve had many comments asking about the mold – where did I find it? It’s a regional store but unfortunately they only carried that mold last year! I checked this year. I was sad. I wanted to buy some to give to some lucky readers – you! Apparently the stars were aligned because on another trip back I happened upon one lonely blue snowflake mold sitting with the loads of green trees and red gingerbread men. One! I snatched it up so fast. There was no letting that sucker go.
