Tonight I made a favorite of mine that just screams Christmas: Peppermint Bark. It's the perfect thing to nibble on throughout the day or after a meal. You can pick a small piece when someone's looking or a big ol' chunk when someone's not.
I make my Peppermint Bark with a layer first of milk chocolate, and then I marble on top of it Callebaut white chocolate flavored with a little bit of mint. And the cherry on top isn't really a cherry, but crushed candy canes.
I would say to leave a plate of this for Santa in lieu of cookies, but if left out too long it will not last... So unless you need a lot of coal this year, just come to grips with the fact that you're going to eat it all for yourself.
