    I just left Courtney's blog to get this amazing recipe, yummy is all I can say!! I loved your vlog to Janelle!! What a great way to shows Gods love to all the staff! I love that idea and will be using in out school next year if you dont mind 🙂 Thank you for coming into my life this year even though we dont know each other personally I feel like we do… You are doing great things in my home!! Much love sweetie and Merry Christmas!! Luv ya

    I love this!! You are so wise…this is yummy and easy and it's so pretty. I have to tell you a funny story. I tried baking the soft sugar cookies and I don't know what happened. I think I added to much of something, but they became sugar biscuits. LOL!! They were puffy…but you want to know what my family loved them and that's all that matters. I was going to give them to neighbors like that, but my honey said can't we just eat them.So they did. Anway I may attempt them again, homemade sugar cookies have always been hard for me to make. I may just use the peppermint bark instead, you can't go wrong with that one.
    Love ya,

    Ps. Love the video, your beautiful and I love what they do for the teachers, what a blessing to receive those!

  4. I just live Courtney 's blog; happy to meet dear Janelle!!!!!
    I just finish to wrap some treats for my son's teacher (I have two).
    I wrap one dundee cake, herbal tea with a mug, banana-lemon jam, a christmas sugar (sugar with orange peel and cinamonn) and some italian dressing salt!!!!
    My son is so proud to bring this package to the teacher to say "Merry Christmas to you and your family).
    Big blessings from France!!!

    Suzel, what beautiful treats for your son's teachers! It is such a wonderful thing to show our children how to serve others…Jesus humbled himself in every way 🙂 Darlene-you crack me up, thank you my crazy friend! Adrienne, I am so glad your family liked the cookies, or ummm…biscuits! Hey, if it tastes good it is good! lol!!! Thank you for your sweet compliments! Sonya-WOHOOOOOOOOOoooooo!!!!! That is EXACTLY why I posted the vlog to inspire others to do the same thing for their children's school!!!! It brings the parents together too…which is such a blessing! YES! God is good! Blessings to you all and keep serving for our Lord..wonderful, awesome, wohoo! ~Janelle

  6. hi janelle.just dropping aline to say well done !on you tube! (brave girl). you looked great, beautiful . you look like you should still be in high school no one would ever think married with 3 kiddies!! i bet everyone at the school went for the peppermint bark.
    go bless

  7. Janelle Nehrenz says:

    Hi Mia! You are cracking me up! Thank you so much…and yes, brave is what I would call it too…lol, I prayed "God, please let me get this right the first time" But, if I could inspire other parents to do this very thing it is the humiliation…God's love can be shared in so many ways…this is a very small way, but effective! We delivered the trays to each employee and every one of them had the biggest smile…so sweet. I had fun with all the moms/my friends…so it was again, a blessing to serve!

  8. Hi Janelle!

    Just wanted to say that you did a great job on the video! My children and I made the peppermint bark and it was so easy and it tastes SO good! You are such a blessing to me and I love reading your blog and tring your recipes!
    God Bless!

  9. Janelle Nehrenz says:

    Thank you Marcy! So glad you girls had fun making it…Have a very Merry Christmas! Love, Janelle

    Loved trying this over the holidays. I added it to my trays for my neighborhood outreach. Such a pretty pop of color and I actually enjoyed tasting this (I'm not much on mint mixed w/ chocolate). But I had the hardest time getting it to break (I left it in the fridge too long). Will be using this again and again! You're so wonderful Janelle!
