While baking for my family Christmas party this the other day I decided to make something new. Everyone knows all about Peppermint Bark. Chocolate and crushed up candy canes combined to make a cool, creamy holiday treat. The problem I have with that though is that it’s been done to death and you don’t want to show up somewhere that already has 5 variations of the stuff. so if you’re over peppermint or it isn’t your holiday flavor of choice and if you’re the one always eating the gingerbread cookies at holiday parties then I have got the perfect holiday treat to make for you! This treat is going to have you standing out in the edible, homemade gift giving department this year! Ginger Bark is going to become one of your favorite go-to holiday treats to make!
I know exactly what you’re thinking, Ginger Bark, what on Earth us that? Ginger Bark is something that is going to put you on the holiday party map and leave the boring old Peppermint Bark in the dust! In Ginger Bark I have taken white chocolate and kicked the peppermint to the curb and replaced it with crushed up gingersnaps. I have to tell you that the pairing is freaking phenomenal! When I made it my daughter and I kept munching on it and when I brought it to my family Christmas party it received rave reviews from everyone. The white chocolate and the crispy ginger cookies are such a perfect pairing.
It doesn’t get much easier than a recipe with only two ingredients!
Simply melt the chocolate in the microwave according to package instructions and crush the gingersnaps in a baggie or food processor.
Pour the crushed gingersnaps into the melted chocolate and stir together then spread the mixture into a prepared pan and let cool in the pan.
Once cool, break or cut up the Ginger Bark, eat and enjoy!
If you are a fan of homemade gifts or if you are in need of a last-minute holiday or hostess gift make a batch of this super easy Ginger Bark candy. It’s sure to be a be a holiday hit!
