This was so easy to make. Used up all the left over candy canes. I will make again.

Peppermint Bark

These came out well except I used candy canes. My son helped by breaking the candy canes & sprinkling them on top of the chocolate. The second batch which went to work, I used white chocolate bark & baking white chocolate. My son added Christmas colored sprinkles to them along with the candy canes.

So Easy!!

This is the easiest holiday recipe and makes such a great gift for neighbors and co-workers! I also recommend mixing the peppermint into the chocolate directly or using the green and red candy canes for more color!
