It's time for bark!

Welcome to Peak Bark
The holidays are bark season, when all the delicious bark desserts come out to play. What's not to like about bark? It's basically one big chocolate bar that you eat in chunks!
You have your standard chocolate bark, sure. But peppermint bark is also big this year, and it's so easy to make! All you need is a bunch of peppermint candies, chocolate, white chocolate, and peppermint extract. Here's a recipe, but remember, you can melt chocolate in the microwave, too. Just keep an eye on it and stir it often so it doesn't scorch.
Bark is an old-fashioned candy, but it doesn't have to be. Here's a recipe that puts a modern spin on things: Whiskey Marshmallow and Caramel Bacon Bark! 
If you're starting to think you could turn anything into bark, you're right. Check out this Spicy Chocolate Chipotle Almond Bark, or related Jalapeno Ancho Chili Bark!
