Be Jolly By Golly Blogfest

We are supposed to share photos of our holiday lights and decorations and a favorite drink or recipe.
Okay, here goes:
This is our Christmas tree in the corner of our front room.
Stockings hang to the left, cozy gas fireplace to the right.
This is a close-up of the front porch decorations.
This is a fuzzy shot of the front of our house.
It doesn't do it justice, though. Sorry.
And now, my favorite holiday recipe!
16 ounces of vanilla flavored almond bark
24 peppermint candies (I use mini candy canes)
1. Cover cookie sheet with waxed paper or aluminum foil. Place bark in microwavable dish. Cook uncovered on high for 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until almost melted. Stir until smooth.
2. Crush candies and sift through strainer. Shake strainer over melted coating until all of the tiniest peices fall into the coating. Save larger pieces. Stir to mix evenly, then spread coating evenly on cookie sheet. Sprinkle with remaining candy pieces.
You can substitute chocolate candy coating to make chocolate peppermint bark, or you can do a layer of chocolate covered by a layer of white for a double flavored bark.
