Red 'n Green Holiday Treats (See Jane Make)


I mentioned on Monday that I attended a holiday party this past weekend.  One of the stipulations for the party was that we had to bring a holiday cookie to share.  I wasn't in the mood to bake on Saturday and came across several recipes for peppermint bark.  I also wasn't thrilled with peppermint that day, so when I stumbled upon Brown Eyed Baker's Pistachio + Cranberry White Chocolate Bark, I was sold.  The colors were stunning and I love pistachios, so I decided to make it and never looked back.
 
While Eric wasn't in love with it (I don't like cranberries, he grimaced), it did win second place in an anonymous cookie tasting.  It was quite possibly was the most competitive holiday party I'd ever attended.

Haha, I love the blind cookie tasting. This is so pretty. I'm not a big pistachio fan but I loooooooove chocolate bark and will eat it in just about any capacity -- especially when pretzels are involved in combination.
