Peppermint Bark


At a holiday party I attended recently I had the best peppermint bark ever. I immediately began craving more and decided it shouldn't be too hard to make my own. See below for steps and a few tips! [I made a small batch because I was just testing it, you can alter the ingredients easily to make more.]

Ingredients :
[1] 1 and 1/2 cup of dark chocolate shavings
[2] 1 and 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
[3] 6 candy canes

How to :
[1] Melt down your dark chocolate and pour onto baking sheet covered with aluminum foil
[2] Place in refrigerator to harder (about 15 to 20 minutes)
[3] While the dark chocolate is hardening break up your candy canes and then run them through the blender to crush them into smaller sizes
[4] Begin melting your white chocolate down
*[5] Stir most of your crushed candy canes into your warm white chocolate (I got so excited to pour the white chocolate onto the dark I didn't think to add this step in. My peppermint bark still came out, but it would taste so much better had I stirred in the peppermint instead of only pouring on top.)
[6] Pour white chocolate mixture over hardened dark chocolate
[7] Top with remaining candy canes
[8] Let it chill in refrigerator for 30-45 minutes. Then break into smaller pieces.
