Peppermint Bark

Peppermint Bark

I was planning to post another Christmas cookie recipe this week, but my youngest daughter said, “Oh, Mom, you should do the Peppermint Bark instead.”  It’s her favorite Christmas treat, and I decided to take her suggestion.  It’s hard to go wrong with a recipe that starts off with these ingredients:

You begin by melting the chocolate chips on a cookie sheet in the oven for 10 minutes.

Then you spread the melted chocolate all over the pan and place it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.  Meanwhile, crush the candy canes by placing them in a ziploc bag and hitting them with a heavy object.  I use my meat tenderizer.

Next, you melt the white chocolate chips, stir in the peppermint extract, and spread it on top of the chocolate chip layer.  Sprinkle the crushed candy canes on top and press them into the chocolate.  Place the cookie sheet back in the refrigerator until it is completely chilled.  Break into pieces or cut into squares.  How easy is that!  Merry Christmas!
