A Wreath Lunch & Crispy Mint Bark

Today's Christmas Cookie Cutter Challenge for me was the wreath cutter. This happens to be one of those cookie cutters that hangs out in the back of the drawer year after year, but I think I have a new found respect for it. Turned out pretty cute, I think, and it definitely has cookie possibilities.. for next year..

Red bell pepper, green olives, carrots, strawberry jello, kiwi 'wreaths', kale, and a grilled ham and swiss sandwich w/ provolone bow.

We also made some crispy peppermint bark, from the blog, Everybody Likes Sandwiches. We pulverized our candy canes in the food processor, though, which made for a pink bark. Still yummy, pink or not! Melt 500g GOOD white chocolate, then add 12 crushed candy canes and 2 cups of crisp rice cereal. Spread it on a wax lined cookie sheet and refrigerate to set. Break into pieces and you have some airy, sweet, crispy, minty goodness to enjoy!
