Holy smokes it’s December guys… can you believe it!? I swear just yesterday it was October and now here we are approaching mid-December, and it feels like it’s been forever since I’ve been around these parts to share a recipe with you lovely people.
Of course it most likely feels like “forever”, because it has been a long time since I shared a recipe with you guys. It’s been one of those months where I just bake everything on a whim, without writing anything down, all the while thinking to myself “yes of course I will remember this recipe…” And then being sadly disappointed when my memory fails me two weeks later. Note to self: MUST WRITE ALL RECIPES DOWN AS I MAKE THEM.
Have you ever had sweet potato pie? Sometimes when I mention sweet potato pie to people they look at me like I’m some sort of crazy person and say things like “sweet potato in a dessert!?” To that all I have to say is; Hell YES sweet potato in a dessert!
But I also have to clarify that when I say “sweet potato” what I really mean is yam. Because when you go to a typical grocery store yams are labelled as the ones with an orange interior (and this is what you want for this recipe), while sweet potatoes have a white interiors (not what you want for this recipe.)
I’m not sure why we as a culture decided to collectively confuse ourselves by swapping the names around when it comes to things like “sweet potato fries” or “sweet potato casserole” or “sweet potato pie” But let’s be honest saying “Yam Pie”just doesn’t have the same effect… amiright?
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.
