Today’s recipe is for the rejects. The has-beens. The losers. It is also for the lazy. The procrastinator. The anti-Valentine. It’s my ridiculous easy recipe for Valentine Rejects Bark.

Funny thing about recipe development, sometimes it goes horribly wrong. For the sake of transparency, I have shared my past cooking disasters with you. I am giving you the stink-eye, Butter Macadamia Truffles! My journey with The Frosted Petticoat has been one of growth and learning. The website is a little microcosm of life, one […]
