CINNAMON, NUT & BERRY CHRISTMAS BARK – RECIPE FOR THERMOMIX
Earlier this week, we shared a recipe for Peppermint Chocolate Christmas Bark. Today we have a different flavour for you to try – it is Christmas Bark made with Cinnamon, Nuts and Berries. You wont believe how easy it is to make this recipe with your Thermomix!
How do you like to make your Christmas Bark? We'd love to know your favourite toppings and flavours. Share your recipe ideas with us in our private Facebook group: Fayi Cookbooks
There are a number of ways that you can serve Christmas Bark:
1. Arrange the Bark on a plate, wrap with cellophane or cling wrap and take it along to your next party.
2. Make a few different flavours of Bark and put them all on the same plate to show a range of colours – we have some more flavours to share with you later this week.
3. Wrap the Bark in cellophane bags and tie a bit of ribbon around the top. This is a simple but effective gift idea.
4. Put the Bark into a Christmas themed tin or container.
