 It's no secret that I love Peppermint Bark, but what I haven't mentioned is that at this time of year I stash Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark Squares in my desk. Peppermint Bark is a seasonal flavor at Ghirardelli, so get these while you can. You can buy these wonderful squares in bags, bars or gift tins at several outlets or you can order online.

Winner will be chosen at random.  Be sure and stop back to this post on December 2 to see if you won. At that time I'll post the winning name, and I'll need your mailing address. Gift Pack will be sent directly from Ghirardelli!


And, here's an idea for a holiday treat using Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark. Toss a 1/2 square into a cup of Hot Coffee for a fabulous brew! You'll create a peppermint mocha!

Don't want the coffee, but love the chocolate? Try Ghirardelli Chocolate Peppermint Hot Cocoa!

I would love to try (as I have not had before). I would love to try for the reason that I love chocolate and this seems to integrate the peppermint and chocolate together. I mean who doesn't like chocolate and peppermint together.

I love Peppermint Bark and would enjoy comparing to what I make and teach in my candy making workshops!

Oooo, Ghirardellli Peppermint Hot Cocoa sounds SO delicious! Peppermint means the holidays for me; always had a *thing* for peppermint ice cream at this time of year. This sounds like another way to capture the magic.

I like Peppermint Bark because my teenage daughter LOVES Peppermint Bark-thus making it one of the few things I can get her for Christmas that will meet with her approval! I usually fill half her stocking with those little individually wrapped Ghirardelli squares.

What could be more perfect for the season than the yummy peppermint bark!

Nette said...

Love, love, love that peppermint bark, and it sounds heavenly in the cocoa. Will definitely give that a go! Thanks for bringing us a fabulous chance to win! Yummo!

I have Ghirardelli Hot Cocoa in my kitchen right now. I'll have to try adding a half square of the Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark in it. Sounds yummy.

Did not even know Ghirardelli made peppermint bark! Would love to try it.

vallerose said...

I've been looking all over for it this year and can't find it. It's the best. I'm looking for the large bars. any hints as to stores?

Fran said...

Peppermint bark is health food, right? And if it's made by Ghirardelli, it's the best possible health food!

Jen said...

Peppermint Bark is very yummy. Don't know that I've had Ghirardelli's before, but I'll try a lot of things that come in chocolate ;-)

NiteShdw said...

Peppermint bark is a staple holiday snack, along with peppermint ice cream and peppermint fudge. Ghirardelli's got the best chocolate, so it'd be a welcome addition to the holiday festivities!

Janet Rudolph said...

Vallery, saw Peppermint Bark at Target, Walgreen's, and even Office Depot yesterday.

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida said...

When you mentioned putting it in coffee and I looked at my unadorned cup I wanted to weep. Oh, yes, I do need this!

Terry Shames said...

It's the best! Love it, look forward to this season so I can have it. The chocolate, the mint, the crunch. 100% yum factor.

Terry Shames said...

Peppermint bark is the best--100% yum factor. Chocolate. Mint. Crunch.

I would like to win because the only thing better than Ghirardelli is FREE Ghirardelli!

One of my favorite flavors, peppermint, just gets a bad rap the rest of the year. I love eating it all year round, and never heard of this until I saw your post. Can't wait to try it!

Ruth Ann said...

All year I wait with anticipation the arrival of the chocolate/peppermint holiday treats! I love this combination of flavors.

Gerry S. said...

Peppermint bark is the signal that xmas is coming, I just had 2 squares with my coffee and I need more!!!!!

Jo said...

Ghirardelli's peppermint bark is the best out there- we have already bought 2 bags since it came out and will need many more! I wonder how many recipes can be created with it!?

Ellen said...

This sounds wonderful. I'd love to try Ghirardelli's peppermint bark.

wizardofwords said...

Too bad I missed your Dec 2nd deadline, but glad I found your blog, Janet! I, too, am a chocoholic - and proud of it!

I've yet to try the Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark, but definitely must, as you're the 2nd person who has recommended them to me, and everyone knows I am researching the best chocolate of the world!

We'll have to keep in touch!
