Holiday Chocolate Bark Madness!

Okay so I may have gotten a little carried away with the Chocolate Bark this year… and by “a little” I mean a lot. It started off with just one batch of delicious bark, and then I just couldn’t stop thinking of all the different flavour combinations and all the different possibilities of deliciousness. Before I knew it, my kitchen counters were literally covered in different flavours of chocolate bark; each amazingly delicious in their own unique ways.

Peppermint Bark Double Chocolate Donuts

img_6424So here’s the deal guys – it’s a good day today. You know why? Because it includes donuts –  and as far as I’m concerned, any day that includes donuts is pretty much the best kind of day. Especially when they are moist, double chocolate donuts that have been sprinkled with an ingredient that pretty much just screams holiday cheer. And you all know how excited I feel about the holiday season.

When Williams-Sonoma approached me about creating a recipe using their delicious Original Peppermint Bark, my mind immediately went to one place; donuts. But not just any old donuts – Fudgy chocolate donuts that would be dipped in a creamy chocolate glaze & sprinkled with chunks of dark and white chocolate bark studded with crunchy peppermint goodness. Yup – we went there. #BARKYEAH baby!

Triple Chocolate Fudge Muffins

Sometimes you just really need a good chocolate muffin. You know like a super moist, fudgey muffin, loaded with good quality milk and dark chocolate chunks. Are we on the same page here?

So here’s the thing these muffins are so chocolatey and delicious, that they could basically qualify as a dessert – however, because they are a “muffin” it is therefore perfectly acceptable for you to eat them for your breakfast. Ergo – you get to eat chocolate for breakfast and feel perfectly okay about it… (not that I think you ever need a legit reason to eat chocolate for breakfast).

Happy weekend peeps!

Okay so I know it’s been a long time coming for this recipe; but I really wanted to wait until the weekend to post this one. I always like to do epic breakfast posts on the weekend because I feel like this is when we all get a little bit inspired to bake things like homemade breads and buns, am I right? Because let’s be real – Who has time to deal with time consuming things like yeast during on a weekday morning?

That’s the beauty of weekends for me; I get to play in the kitchen. Admittedly I sometimes get a little carried away and end up baking enough to feed about 4 families for a week, but who’s really going to complain about having some extra baked goodies around the house? I know I sure ain’t. And then there are the times when I get a little carried away with my weekend breakfast baking adventures, and I proceed to bake up deliciousness that barely even qualifies as breakfast in any other way except for its name.
