Peppermint Bark

  • 1 pkg. white chocolate -- any brand of instant chocolate candy will work
  • 10 med. or 20 sm. candy canes or peppermint sticks
  • Green or red food coloring -- optional
  • Wax paper

In a sauce pan, melt the white chocolate over LOW heat. You may also follow the microwave instructions on the package for melting the chocolate. While melting, crush the candy canes. I leave them in their plastic wraps and crush with a hammer. Empty crushed candy in a small bowl. After the chocolate melts, add red or green food coloring (a few drops will do). The food coloring is optional. Add crushed candy canes and stir will. Empty the contents of the saucepan onto wax paper which has been set on the counter top. With a large spoon, spread the mixture so that is very thin. Leave to cool at room temperature (less than 1 hour). When cool, break into pieces. The candy is now ready to serve. Everybody loves this candy!
