Salted Chocolate Peppermint Bark

Alright, I have one more last minute treat for Valentine's Day to share with you.  I originally made this for Christmas and it was such a hit that I decided I would drop in a little food coloring and make it fit for Valentine's Day.  I love versatile holiday treats.  I might continue this throughout the year.  Green for St. Patty's Day, blue for the 4th of July, orange for Halloween....the possibilities are endless!
