Christmas Baking: peppermint bark

 Yesterday we made incredibly addicting

toffee pretzel bark

, and today we're here with an even easier recipe for peppermint bark!  Truly, this isn't much of a recipe, but it's too good not to share.

Peppermint Bark

Ingredients:

white chocolate*

candy canes

*you can get fancy with your white chocolate and use Callebaut, or you can go the cheaper route and just use white chocolate melting wafer.

Directions:

1)  First, place your candy canes in a large plastic bag, and use a meat hammer/rolling pin/etc to smash them into small pieces.  You can use a fine strainer to sift off the very fine candy cane dust to save for later (we sprinkle it on top to decorate the bark.

2)  Melt your white chocolate in a large saucepan.

3)  Stir in the candy cane bits, and pour mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  

4)  Sprinkle with the super fine dusty and/or sprinkles.  Allow to cool in the fridge, and then break into chunks and serve.

*In addition to serving this as traditional bark chunks, we also piped some of the chocolate into snowflake molds!  These worked wonderfully, and were a nice change from the norm.

Again, this bark is dangerously addicting!  So make it at your own risk!
