Peppermint Bark

This makes a great gift for neighbors or friends if you don’t eat it all before you get a chance to gift them.

Bon Appetit!

• 10 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
• 12 oz white chocolate chips
• 6 candy cane(s)

Place the semi-sweet chocolate morsels (not quite 1 bag) in a bowl and place in the microwave on high power for 30 seconds. Stir with a rubber spatula. Put it back in the microwave for another 30 seconds and stir again. Continue until melted.

Pour the melted chocolate onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper or wax paper and spread it into a large rectangle. Place in fridge.

Break candy canes into very small pieces.

Melt entire bag of white chocolate chips using the same method as in step 1. As soon as it is melted, spread white chocolate on top of semi-sweet chocolate.

Sprinkle candy cane pieces on top of white chocolate and press. Let cool in fridge for 45 minutes or until hard.

Break into pieces.
