This year I've decided to write a special Christmas memory for the 25 days of Christmas. Each day until Christmas day, I will share a funny Christmas moment, memorable gift exchange, and my happy moments with family. I hope you enjoy!
15th Day of Christmas
One Christmas, a friend of mine at work, MaryBeth, gave me a recipe for bark. Being the non chef that I am, I took this recipe of four ingredients and went to town. It is so simple: 1 cup of butter melted mixing in a cup of sugar (nice and healthy), a sleeve of saltine crackers lining the bottom of a cookie tray which you then pour the sugary mixture over and bake, then you add chocolate chips on top, let melt, and spread over the rest. Honestly it's so easy a cave man can do it - no offense.
I made it that first year with chocolate chips and it was SO good. I then started to experiment using butterscotch morsels, chocolate mint morsels, and white chocolate. Each batch came out better than the next. I made so much of it, I had dozens of it. I made plates for everyone I know and sent it out to them for Christmas. We had bark in our fridge for weeks after Christmas and every day we'd eat a little more of it. When the next year came around, Jared asked for more and same again every year. This year, Jared sheepishly asked me again if I was going to make that bark. Umm, yeah I am! It is super easy, purely sugar, and so tasty! The best/easiest bark around. Thanks to MB!
