Peppermint Pretzel Bark

Peppermint Pretzel Bark

Bark is so easy to make and it’s perfect for Holiday parties or just any day of the week really. However, it is quite dangerous to have laying around the house. It is cut in such small pieces, that you just walk by, pick one up and pop it into you mouth. Well, if you continue to do this all day, you will have probably eaten half of the tray. Don’t know how I know this fact..probably read it somewhere…yup that’s it.{cough-cough}.
