Peppermint Bark Recipe

Ever since I posted that my Mom and I were making peppermint bark on Facebook, I've been asked for the recipe. So here ya go! 

It was easy to make and most of all, it's really yummy and festive!

1 12 ounce bag of white chocolate chips
1 24 ounce package of white chocolate bark
1/8 teaspoon of white peppermint extract
1 - 2 cups of crushed candy canes to suit your tastes

1. Put your candy canes in a plastic baggie and smash, smash, smash with a hammer. Take your frustrations out on those innocent candy canes until they are finely smashed.

2. Melt both types of white chocolate in a pan on the stove over low heat. Watch closely and keep stirring until it is completely melted.

3. Remove from heat and add the peppermint extract.

4. Stir in the smashed candy canes. Stir well until it is completely mixed.

5. Pour into waxed paper lined cookie sheet(s) and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Remove from fridge and break up the bark into pieces like peanut brittle. 

6. Enjoy!! 

We made this twice and the first time we used 2 cups of crushed candy canes. The second time we only used 1 cup and preferred the second batch.

We wanted our bark to be thin so we poured it onto 2 cookies sheets. For thicker bark only use 1 cookie sheet.
