Peppermint Bark recipePeppermint bark makes the perfect neighbor gifts.  It is cost effective, looks festive on a plate, and tastes awesome.  What more could you ask for?

crushed candy canes

Ingredients

1 Bag white baking chips
1 Bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 Candy canes

Peppermint Bark recipe

Directions

Line a baking sheet with or parchment paper.  Unwrap candy canes and put them in a plastic ziploc bag.  Use a rolling pin to crush the candy cane into small pieces.  Separate the smaller/finer pieces of candy cane from the larger pieces into two separate bowls and set them aside.

Put the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 15 second increments, stirring in between, until chips are melted. Spread the chocolate mixture out onto the parchment paper and sprinkle with fine candy cane pieces.

Repeat the melting process with the white baking chips.

Spread the mixture out onto the parchment paper.  Sprinkle the bowl of larger candy canes over the top and gently press them in.  Chill in the freezer until firm {about 15 minutes}.  Break into pieces and you’re done.

How I Feed My Family for $100 a Month – Week 50 of 52

winco bulk foods

Winco $36.15

The Girl and I were running errands over by Winco so we decided to stop in and stock up on some bulk spices and other stuff like lentils, shredded coconut, rice mixes and beans. We were there around noon and let me tell you Bob, I have never seen Winco so deserted. It seemed like there were only about 20 people in the entire store. Cool, but weird.

famous chocolate wafers

Fred Meyer $8.58

The HH stopped by Fred Meyer’s on his way home to grab a couple of boxes of Famous Chocolate Wafers for me {what a nice guy}. I plan on making Smitten Kitchen’s chocolate peanut butter cheesecake for one of my {many} Christmas desserts. Have you tried it? Oh my word it looks delicious. Peanut butter, chocolate and cheesecake, does it get any better than that?

Also, a  few random items were left behind after the freezer meal party last Monday. Not pictured are 1 1/2 gallons of milk, 6 onions, 4 heads of garlic and 2 bunches of parsley. So between our stock up trip to Costco last week, I think we’re set for a while.

How did you do this week? Score any hot deals at the grocery store or online?

~Mavis

Total Spent This Week $44.73
Total Spent Year to Date $1907.34 {Yikes!}
