This recipe was easy to make and fabulous. I did, however, make one change...instead of using the red and green candies I used red and green sugar. It turned out beautiful.

I did not try this specific recipe, but in the past I made Holiday Bark with white chocolate, mini candy canes, and unsalted mini pretzels. It was a big hit.
