Peppermint Bark

Peppermint Bark

I love the festive appearance of this candy. Although you can use a milk or dark chocolate, I prefer the way white chocolate offsets the red and green candies. If you want to use milk or dark chocolate, try substituting toffee bits for the crushed candies. When I make this, I use a product called "Red and Green Peppermint Crunch" made by CK Products. Your local candy supply shop may have this in stock.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. white chocolate
  • 1 cup crushed red and green peppermint candies

Instructions

  1. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Carefully melt the white chocolate in the top of a double boiler or in the microwave.
  3. Stir in the crushed candies.
  4. Pour mixture onto lined cookie sheet and spread into a thin layer.
  5. Place in refrigerator to cool.
  6. Break into small pieces to serve.

Notes

If you want to use milk or dark chocolate, try substituting toffee bits for the crushed candies. When I make this, I use a product called "Red and Green Peppermint Crunch" made by CK Products. Your local candy supply shop may have this in stock.

Place about 1/4 pound of the candy in a cellophane bag. Tie with colored ribbon and use as a stocking stuffer or place inside a coffee mug with an envelope of gourmet hot chocolate.
