Peppermint Bark Puppy Chow

Raven Higheagle


What would December be without a White Elephant gift party? There’s always the good gift everyone fights over and then there’s the uhh… not-so-good gift. I remember people giving away ONE glove, a broken remote control, a traffic cone, even a jar of their own toe nails! Gross!
But when I was 18 I went to my first White Elephant party and someone gave a box of peppermint bark–That was the gift everyone wanted. [end-story]
