Peppermint Oreo Cookie Bark

This has been a busy month in the kitchen;  Advent is a time we sell a lot of baked goods in the gift shop. The first weekend we always have plated teas in the guesthouse and a service of Advent Lessons and Carols. We enjoy making Bourbon cakes, Strawberry rhubarb pies, cranberry bread, ginger spice cookies, chocolate fudge, English toffee, orange rolls, St Lucia bread, to name a few.  We make a lot of these on Saturday mornings when we have our Community work time and kitchen helpers aged 6 to 70. There is a dedicated group of younger girls who help out on a regular basis, and I just love their enthusiasm; they will do anything they are asked to do from washing dishes to crimping pie crusts to making jam. I am happy  to encourage our future chefs! I think one of their favorite things was helping make the candy for the gift shop. The white chocolate Oreo peppermint bark is the prettiest and quite delicious; I have included that recipe here so you can make it to enjoy over the holidays. A Blessed Christmas!
