Recipe: Gluten Free Peppermint White Chocolate Bark

Gluten Free White Chocolate Peppermint Bark

Last week I was in Amaranth Foods here in Calgary and came across a display of Candy canes with a gluten free sign.

Aren’t all candy canes gluten free?

Actually- most are not.

Unfortunately everything you buy that is processed has to have its ingredient label read carefully.

I took home a couple of boxes to try and was very impressed. Not only are these candy canes gluten free, they are vegan and organic.

Tru Sweets Organic Candy Canes are worth checking out.

I went back to Amaranth a couple of days later and picked up 7 boxes. I always try to get extra seasonal ingredients that are gluten free.

So what do you do with 7 boxes of candy canes? Make Peppermint White Chocolate Bark of course!

  1. Yeah, renovations are so insvtuire those homeless people have it easy. Not having a home means not having those pesky contractors walking all over my organic bamboo floors and getting dust on my Persian silk throw pillows. *Sigh*
