Last year when I was knee deep in my couponing obsession I came across a coupon for brownie bark and at less than $1 a bag I thought…why not? And oh my heaven’s brownie bark is absolutely the best thing since, well, brownies. It’s crunchy with an intense chocolaty, brownie taste. Perfection. And it’s super simple, too which is always a plus in my book.

I’ve made brownie bark from a boxed cake mix before but it honestly doesn’t compare to making it completely from scratch. Like not even close. So when Bob’s Red Mill offered to send me a bag of their amazeballs unbleached organic flour I fan girled a little bit and then jumped at the chance. I love their product because it’s the same high protein flour used by pro bakers and produces everything from perfectly textured loaves of bread to light, airy baked goods. And it’s kinda the star of this bark.

Does anyone else love white elephant parties as much as I do? I had no idea what these even were until some friends and I did one several years ago. I had NO idea what to bring so I just made cookies, boxed and wrapped them up, and set them in the pile. I like to feed my coworkers. What can I say? Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine people would be fighting over my cookies. So thus the tradition for a baked good as my white elephant gift began. I haven’t attended one of those parties since I moved but a friend recently confessed that she missed the opportunity to haggle and steal and barter for my cookies. I promised her a care package 😉 And this stuff will definitely be making the cut.

I holiday’d it up {that’s a word now, you’re welcome} with some peppermint and crushed candy canes and some white chocolate because white chocolate just makes me think Christmas. I’m not sure why. The result is a crispy sweet brownie bark perfect for your next cookie exchange or white elephant party or Tuesday night watching movies in your pjs. Whatever.

AND lucky for you Bob’s Red Mill has a coupon just for you! So you can save on this brownie bark at home without needing to wait around and score a store bought bag for a buck.

Have you ever been to a wild elephant party? What was the craziest gift you ever got stuck with?

Thank you for catching that! You add the sugar when you add the eggs and vanilla. I've edited the recipe :) Thanks again!

I love white elephant exchanges! I've never really gotten anything bad, at my old job we always did a wild ornament one which was cool, that's how I ended up with an armadillo ornament on my tree

White elephant exchanges are SO fun. I've never been stuck with anything bad either. One year I got this beautiful hand dyed yarn. Gorrrgeous.
