Reviews forChristmas Bark Candy
"I make this every year. My mom always searches for it when I bring candy and cookies to her house at Christmas time."
"Amazing tryin this"
"I HAVE MADE THIS FOR Christmas GIFTS FOR YEARS. I AM ALWAYS ASKED FOR THE RECIPE."
"I made this recipe last year and I'm looking forward to making it again. It makes great teacher gifts. I also made one with chocolate and craisens. This was a big hit. And the one with crushed candy canes was good too."
"I have looked for this recipe for many years after the candy was shared with me in 1997. I used almond bark rather than chips, and that worked well. I also mixed M&M's and pretzels because I love the sweet and salty combo. I'll be making this next year to give as a gift to friends! I can't believe how easy it was, but it doesn't appear that way."
"The children love it and it is quick to make."
"made this w/white choc chips for xmas last year; everyone loved it. my sis just asked me for the recipe so she could make it for her office party this year"
