Holiday cookie baking has begun, and last week I taped some television food segments for NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama”. One will air in December on “holiday food gifts. I couldn’t decide between a cookie and a bark type dessert, so I decided to combine the two in Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookie Bark. This recipe combines scharffenberger chocolate, pecans and peanut butter chips. It’s incredibly easy and fabulous!
