How To: Make Peppermint Bark

If you’re looking for a treat to bring to your next holiday party but you’re running low on time, ingredients, or just want to avoid baking, peppermint bark is a delicious, easy option! You only need a few ingredients, and you can never go wrong with chocolate desserts. The best part of this recipe? You can customize the ingredients depending on your taste, but we highly recommend this coconut, dark chocolate and peppermint combo!

How To: Make Peppermint Bark

INGREDIENTS
1 cup white chocolate chips
¾ cup dark chocolate chips
⅓ cup crushed peppermint candies
⅓ cup shredded coconut
⅓ cup chocolate coconut flakes

How To: Make Peppermint Bark

DIRECTIONS

1] Line a 9 x 3 inch pan with foil and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.

2] Place ¾ cup of the white chocolate chips into a bowl, microwave for 30 seconds and stir.

3] Repeat heating and stirring in ten second intervals until the chocolate has melted.

4] Pour the melted chocolate into the pan and place in the fridge for 5 minutes.

Laura’s Tips: How To Style The Oversized Cardigan

If you love cold weather layers as much as we do at AEO, you’ve come to the right place. Winter is the perfect season to mix fabrics, patterns and textures thanks to layering. One of our favorite layers this year is the cardigan, thanks to amazing designs like the cascading open frontshawl collar, and drapey fit. Gone are the days of frumpy, boring silhouettes: enter the updated oversized cardi! We asked our Styling Manager, Laura, to show us three of her favorite looks and to give us some tips so that we can wear the oversized cardigan with confidence. Check out her tips below and shop each look to find your own new layering BFF.

How To Style The Oversized Cardigan

Look 1: Feminine Edge
Balance your feminine and edgy personalities with a chunky cardigan. Sticking to the same neutral color family makes it easy to mix textures and styles. Lace detailing on top and destructed, black denim below create an effortless look when paired back to a boucle knit. Finish the look with heeled clogs for a fresh take on the cozy trend.

Shop the Look: 
AEO Oversized Boucle Cardigan
AEO Lace Cami
Jegging
BC Like Clockwork Clog

Look 2: Retro Comfort
We love the subtle, retro vibes in this look. Make your look pop with a boho lacy tank that won’t get lost beneath a bold, waterfall cardigan. Perfect for a retro-meets-modern feel, add denim in an trendy silhouette like the Tomgirl jean, and complete the outfit with old-school cool Swedish Hasbeens clogs.

Shop the Look: 
AEO Draped Cardigan
AEO Lace Bubble Tank
AEO Denim X Café Tomgirl Jean
Swedish Hasbeens Slip In Super High

Look 3: Free-Spirited Cozy
Make a statement by wearing patterns + graphics together, and  let your free-spirited side shine. Wrap yourself up in this oversized, patterned cardigan and stay cozy in Minnetonka fringe sneakers. Contrast the cardi with a bold graphic t-shirt (from our Soft & Sexy line!), and pair everything back to denim in a unique indigo wash.

Shop the Look: 
AEO Patterned Cocoon Cardigan
AEO Soft & Sexy Long T-Shirt
Super Soft Indigo Jegging
Minnetonka Venice Sneaker

#AEOSTYLE Roundup: NYC Holiday Party

We offered self-portrait lattes by barista artist Michael Breach and participated in the shopping fun by picking out favorite #AEOGIFTS for everyone on our list!
