Holiday Treats

Photo by SashasMommy
Since my Peppermint Land treasury went so well I decided to celebrate with this recipe. There may be more mint recipes to come throughout this month of blog post! You can say I've taken a umm.. special liking (cough, slight obsession) to peppermints for this holiday season.

Peppermint Candy Cane Bark
Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes


2lbs. White chocolate chips
12 Candy canes, crushed (can be pulverized in a closed Ziploc bag with a hammer)
1 teaspoon Peppermint Extract

  1. Melt white chocolate either in a double boiler or in a bowl over a pot of boiling water.
  2. Stir in crushed candy cane and peppermint extract into melted white chocolate.
  3. Line a 11x17" baking pan with wax paper.
  4. Pour and spread chocolate mixture onto wax paper.
  5. Chill until firm and break into pieces
  6. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Such a simple recipe with a gourmet look! You can use 1lb. baking chocolate chips (bittersweet or dark chocolate) to layer the bottom of the white chocolate. Just let the brown chocolate cool in the fridge while you're melting the white chocolate and layer that on top. You can also reserve the chunkier pieces of crushed candy cane to layer the top of the whole treat as sprinkles.

I am not a cook AT ALL, but this looks almost easy enough for even me to attempt. It looks so luxurious and tasty. We have our Holiday party coming up this weekend and this would be perfect to serve! Thanks for sharing.
