12 Days of Christmas Recipe Contest Winner: Christmas Bark

It's just not the holidays without some delicious and rich, Christmas Bark. This recipe is so easy to make, and your friends and family will go crazy for it. You need to try this one.

Chocolate is my love language, so when I heard about this Christmas Bark, I just knew I had to try it. I love making holiday candies, so I knew this one had to be on my list this year.

I love making simple and delicious treats to take to neighbors, and that’s exactly what this Christmas Bark is. It is easy to make, and tastes amazing.

If you are looking to start a new holiday tradition, I highly recommend making this Christmas Bark, a part of it.

the story behind the bark

In honor of of our cookbook, 12 Days of Christmas with Six Sisters? Stuff, we hosted a recipe contest to find YOUR favorite holiday recipes.

After a lot of baking, cooking and sampling we have chosen 12 of our reader’s favorite recipes. Thanks to everyone who participated

Today we are featuring the Christmas Bark Recipe from Maria Loving. Maria has been making this recipe for at least 10 years.

Maria makes gift bags filled with the bark for teachers, co-workers and friends at Christmas, and she says once they taste it, they can’t get enough.

She makes almost 18 batches each year just to meet the demands.

what could I use instead of saltine crackers?

This recipe is best with saltine crackers, however, if you don’t have any on hand, or don’t like saltine crackers, you can substitute them.

I have made this recipe, multiple times using graham crackers. It is just as delicious, if not more. It is also just as easy to make and full of delicious and sweet flavor.

The saltines give it a little sweet and salty taste, but the graham crackers just make it that much sweeter. Both are delicious, and would work just the same.

what could i sprinkle on it, if i don’t like nuts?

I love a good garnish on my desserts. They add just a small hint of taste or texture to dessert, as well as a better presentation.

I love making this with candy cane bits, nuts, Oreo bits, gingersnap crumbles, white chocolate drizzle, or even saltine cracker crumbles for a little extra taste of savory.
