I hope you all had a Merry Christmas/happy holiday.
I had 3 Christmas' this year and I'm sad it's over, but I'm so lucky that I was able to celebrate with all the people I love.
I asked Santa for money this year so I could have some reconstruction done to my site by Southtown Creative. I highly recommend it!
Anyway, sorry for the short hiatus, but it's been a busy week. Since I'm sure you all have, too, I'm posting an easy recipe today.
Wrigley kindly sent me a humongous box of candy (this did not influence any opinions) and asked, “How do YOU use Wrigley gum and confections in your entertaining, celebrating, or DIY-ing?"
Amy Atlas is an amazing sweets stylist, so I've got nothing on her, but I made some bark. It was a long shot, but it ended up tasted really good and the kids in my family really enjoyed it. I really think it was the addition of the cherry flavoring. Without it, the chocolate would have been too overpowering.

1 package Vanilla Almond Bark
2 teaspoons oil
1 teaspoon cherry extract
2 cups skittles
2 packages crushed up lifesavers
Optional: Colored sugars
1. Melt the vanilla almond bark with the oil in the microwave. (About 2 minutes)
2. Poor almond bark on a nonstick surface and spread a thin layer. (I used parchment paper)
3. Layer skittles, lifesavers, and sugars over the melted chocolate.
4. Let cool until hardened, break apart and serve.
