Holiday Gift Blitz! Peppermint Bark

20 Dec

When I was a kid, I got so excited by the thought of *white* chocolate at Christmastime! I sort of felt like a little freak, because I loved it better than milk chocolate and it seemed no one else did. I’ve finally made my own peppermint bark, and it’s the easiest thing to make. EVER. And delicious.


1/2 cup crushed peppermints

1 lb. white chocolate (bar, chips, etc.)

Grab two handfuls of peppermints or candy canes, dump them into a plastic bag, pick up a hammer or heavy object (I used a meat tenderizer) and whack the candy until it’s in little pieces:


Next, melt the chocolate in the microwave (1 minute on high, stir, then heat for another minute.) Stir in peppermints:


Line a baking sheet with a layer of parchment paper; spread the chocolate-peppermint mixture evenly. Refrigerate for 30 minutes; break into pieces and put into lovely gift bags. Viola!

    I’m pretty sure Santa’s elves live on this stuff.
