Friiiiidaaaaaay! Time for nutty chocolaty chocolate!

Um. Also? I thought it would be nice to remind you that Christmas is 5 days away. (!!!) Go ahead, freak out. I just did.

Also, are you really seeing this chocolate bark? I’m shocked because I thought I ate all of it. I’m not sure how I finally gave up on inhaling it all just to take a photo of said bark. 

Wanna talk about something even more shocking? I recently realized that I will never, EVER, everrrr have another Christmas Break ever again. Technically, I haven’t had one since 2001 – I just HAD to finish college. Nerd. Should’ve just taken my sweet ol’ time, but noooooo, I wanted to break freeeeeeeee! Go to work from 9 to 5. Make my own monaaaay! Dork.

Moral of the story, if you’re still in school, stay in school. It’s the only way that you can have a Christmas Break, Spring Break (MISS IT!), Summer Break, even Fall Break! WAAAAAAAH! I hate you! I mean, I love you, I’m just jealous. ‘Tis all.

So. Do you like toffee? Or is chocolate bark your thing? I wasn’t ready to give up on either one, or make one of them feel less wanted, therefore I put them together and we lived happily ever after…

Well. I lived. Them? Not so much.

This bark, or toffee, or toffee-bark, is all kinds of amazing. For reals. It’s sweet, it’s salty, it’s creamy, it’s crunchy, it’s chewy, it’s sticky, it’s it’s it’s! So much better than just… bark. Or just toffee.

Let’s go combine some sugar and butter and bring to a boil. We should probably chop up some nuts before we do that, though. Or don’t chop them – I sure don’t. Just make sure you’re not gifting this chocolate bark to your Grandma, the one that chews Freedent gum. 😉

ENJOY!

  1. Nutty chocolate barks are THE BEST barks! Love this combination of nuts, too. Thanks for sharing, my dear. I’m with you…still in denial Christmas Eve is tomorrow (tomorrow!) for us. (I know you celebrate later. So much better, I think!) I’m going to go by the Gregorian calendar this year and celebrate the holidays through January 7th. (Take THAT, Father Time! Ha!) Meanwhile, best wishes to you and yours for a meaningful and joyous Christmas holiday! xo

    1. Hi Stacy!!! So happy to “see” you!! I’m sorry I haven’t been over at your lovely blog in a while, but these past 3 months were sort of impossible…and ridiculous! Work, moving, more work… BUT, I’ll be back to my old schedule in less than a month! Merry Christmas to you and to yours!! XOXO

  2. Yeah with the blog and such breaks are kinda nonexistent. But I’m thankful I don’t have to leave the house when it’s all gross and snowy out. Plus it means having amazing things like this bark around!
