Quick & Easy Peppermint Bark

Sometimes, you just need that chocolate “fix”. I just finished my first semester of college, and I can tell you firsthand that the hardest part about college was not the homework load, making it to class on time, or even waking up for 8AM biology. It was not being able to bake. And not being…
