Paleo Peppermint Bark
-A gluten free, grain free & dairy free holiday treat that you don't have to feel guilty about!-
The holiday season is in full swing as Christmas is right around the corner (11 days to be exact). The hustle and bustle is here, this proved true when I attempted to grocery shop yesterday... remind me to stay away from all stores on weekends in December, because it was chaotic!
As everyone is preparing for the gatherings of family and friends throughout the next few weeks, I want to make sure that you have plenty of healthy options that you can bring to the party and enjoy without feeling horribly guilty the next day. Everyone thinks that healthy eating is boring, bland food, however this could not be further from the truth! This recipe for Paleo Peppermint Bark is just another example of a real food holiday treat that is so good it melts in your mouth and will have your relatives immediately requesting the recipe (especially if they know it's somewhat healthy for them)! The taste 'WOW' them and it's cute, festive appearance makes for a beautiful center piece, so find a holiday platter, fill it with this Peppermint Bark and watch as it quickly disappears as your next Christmas gathering.
