Christmas Candy Recipes

Desserts are the favorite part of any family gathering. Throw in the fact that it is Christmas and you’ve got a party going on. Chocolate desserts aren't just for kids or grandchildren, but even mom and dad, grandmom and granddad enjoys them, mostly because they're thought to be bad for us, but it's still fun to eat them.

To the surprise of many, chocolate is back in the good graces of the public. According to scientists, chocolate, specifically dark chocolate contains antioxidant substances called flavonoids. One type of flavonoids, called flavanols, are active in fighting the effects of aging, cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses that strike the body. So, now you see that chocolate is good to have not just at Christmas but all year round.

There's many different variations on how to make this chocolate bark recipe, I've made it using white chocolate, and also am going to be making a chocolate chili bark using chili powder, red pepper flakes and cinnamon!

I found many of my baking supplies for a reasonable cost at Aldi stores!
