  3. I’ve never made anything like this before, but it sounds so easy! Thank you for sharing, it looks quite yummy :)

    1. There is a link in the post that you can use to purchase online or you can try to find them at a baking supply store. They have them at Wal-Mart as well I believe!

  4. Thank you for sharing this recipe. This is my daughter’s favorite Christmas candy. I will be making this for her.

  5. This looks so good. I actually just made a mint and chocolate bark this morning for a cookie exchange but since I didn’t know what everyone was making I opted to go for making candy and I love how it turned out the only thing is I made a little too much that I have a bag and a half in the freezer. I’d like to try your bark candy. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes
    which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come
    here and visit more often. Did you hire out a
    designer to create your theme? Exceptional work!

  7. You could definitely see your skills in the article you write.
    The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how
    they believe. At all times follow your heart.
