Peppermint Bark

I have seen so many different versions of this yummy candy, but this was easy and so good!! Only 3 ingredients and it takes no time at all...... a treat perfect for giving to friends all wrapped up! Try it out!


2 cups semi-sweet chocolate or dark chocolate chips
2 cups white chips
1/2 crushed candy canes

1. Place the candy canes(about 6-7)in a zip lock bag and crush them with a rolling pin. As small as you want them. Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Line a cookie sheet with foil and make the foil long enough to crimp over the edges. When the chocolate is melted, spread evenly over the foil.Sprinkle just a bit of crushed candy canes over the chocolate. Place in the fridge to set up. Let it cool for 15 min.
2. While the chocolate is cooling melt the white chocolate in a double boiler. Take cookie sheet out of fridge and spread the white chocolate QUICKLY pour melted choc late. You must work fast because the heat from the white chocolate with start to re-melt the dark chocolate. After you have spread the white chocolate evenly sprinkle with the rest of the candy canes.
3. Place back in the fridge to set up; at least 30 min. Next you can used a knife to cut your candy into pieces and place them in bags or an airtight container to stay fresh. I keep mine in the fridge to keep in from melting or getting too soft. Enjoy!
