Peppermint Bark

Peppermint Bark

Makes 2 1/4 pounds or one 11-by-17-inch sheet
If you don’t have a double boiler, use a metal bowl set over a pot of simmering water.


2 pounds white chocolate, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces

12 large candy canes

1/2 teaspoon peppermint oil

1. Line an 11-by-17-inch baking sheet with parchment, and set aside.

2. In the top of a double boiler, melt white chocolate, stirring constantly.

3. With a chef’s knife or meat tenderizer, cut or pound candy canes into 1/4-inch pieces.

4. Stir pieces of candy canes and peppermint oil into the melted chocolate. Remove from heat, and pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet; spread evenly. Chill until firm, 25 to 30 minutes. Break into pieces, and serve. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
