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

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.

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!
