Pastel peppermint bark

In between wrapping gifts and Christmas festivities, I came across a neat post by Such Pretty Things for pastel peppermint bark.  {instructions here}

I have made red and white peppermint bark in the past but had not considered making a pastel version.
What a pretty idea and so simple to make!

I scooped up some white candy melts and gel food coloring.
Here is the pale aqua and white version.

Those of you who know me know I love glitter!
Would it surprise you that I have some edible glitter?
Here is a pic of the bark sprinkled with glitter.
(just a vertical and horizontal pattern made with toothpicks)

I think my bark was still a little too warm because the glitter was not as "fluffy" as it would normally be on cupcakes.

Here is the pink and mint version.
(I got a little swirly with the toothpicks ;-) )

The colors I used were Wilton Leaf Green, Soft Blue and Pink.
The edible glitter is also made by Wilton.

What a pretty hostess gift or tea tray treat!

Thanks for stopping by sweet friends!  I hope you are having a very sweet holiday season.
