I found this really simple and VERY delicious peppermint candy recipe at SimplyRecipes.com and wanted to share it again. I plan to make it this week for giving, and usually make it each Christmas season…at least once if not more, depending on the need:
 

Chocolate Peppermint Bark Recipe

  • Prep time: 5 minutes
  • Cook time: 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • 12 oz. of high-quality white chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips
  • 5 regular sized candy canes, crushed up
  • 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract

METHOD

1 Break up peppermint candy into little pieces. Melt the chocolate according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once melted, add the peppermint extract and stir.
2 Pour the melted chocolate out onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and spread out with a spatula or wooden spoon. Sprinkle the peppermint candy chunks on to the chocolate and gently press them in with yours hands.
3 Place in the freezer for 5 minutes or until hardened. Break into pieces and serve or store in the fridge in an airtight container.
