Homemade Peppermint Bark

One of the most distinctive signs of the holiday season is not the snow, chilling temperatures, or the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It’s the resurgence of everything peppermint! If you’re a peppermint lover you’re probably so glad this flavor has joined the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks and you can’t wait to get your hands on some tasty peppermint bark. But why not try to make your own?

Making chocolate never proves to be easy, but it is always worth it.

Maple Walnut Upside Down Persimmon Cake

Native persimmons are small, about the size of a walnut in its shell or smaller. With a flavor reminiscent of dates, they are full of large seeds. Unless you want the shock of a lifetime, only eat them if they are dark orange and squishy soft. otherwise, they are so astringent you will literally feel the insides of your cheeks adhere to the surface of your teeth.
