Christmas Swirled Peppermint Bark is different from the traditional peppermint bark with its dark chocolate and white chocolate layers. Rather, it starts with a peppermint flavored white chocolate layer, and adds striking swirls of red and green. It's so much easier to make and produces an awe-inspiring treat that will delight young and old.
