Confections for Connie's Cousins

It's  baaaaack!!! 
Last year, this peppermint bark helped us bring Connie home forever. She's here and she's a little package of sweets herself! 

The bark was so popular, I decided to make it again this year, but this time the proceeds will help my sister Tara and her husband Jonathan bring home their children...Connie's Cousins!!!

Here's the Nalley family on their first trip to meet their two children in Ghana.  They still have some steps before their adoption is complete and they can bring them home forever. They are also adopting a darling little girl from a different country, and you can learn more about their adoptions at

Without further ado...let me introduce:

Homemade Peppermint Bark. 

This is not your average confection.  I have researched, sampled, and melted many different chocolates...and finally came up with something that I am truly proud to sell for this fundraiser. 

Two layers of velvety Guittard premium chocolate, infused with all-natural peppermint oil and topped with crushed peppermint bits.  Not only does Guittard chocolate taste amazing, it is all natural (no preservatives or additives) and is processed in a peanut and gluten-free facility*. Another huge plus in my book: Guittard chocolate is Fair Trade Certified.  The crushed peppermint candies are all-natural as well (from Trader Joe's).  Each box contains approximately 6 oz. of bark.

The bark will come sealed and inside a box with the "Confections for Connie's Cousins" label (and a little card insert telling the recipient that all proceeds are going toward the Nalley family adoptions). 

*Guittard Allergen Statement

These boxes will make lovely Christmas/Holiday gifts for friends, teachers, family members...anyone you know who has a sweet tooth! They are sealed in a cello bag, placed in a box and tied up in string. As long as the bark is sealed and stored in a cool dry place, it is edible for up to a year.  Last year, I opened one box 5 months later and it was as good as the day I made it!

It is definitely wrapped and delivered with love!
