Peppermint Bark Pops
How beautiful are these little peppermint bark pops?  Shaped like an old-fashioned sucker, you might even call them Christmas lollypops.  As time (and baby napping) allows, I've been baking and freezing little treats for Christmas.

We also have white chocolate dipped Oreos, soft vanilla bean salted caramels, jars of dark and spicy apple butter, and lots of nuts in their shells for snacking.  And for Christmas Day, there will be eggnog cake with bourbon vanilla buttercream and chocolate cream pie...
