This is so embarrassingly easy that it hardly counts as a recipe. I’ve had several people ask me how to make it so I decided to put it here. I usually only make it around Christmas and I have no idea why as it would be great any time of the year and I can find the ingredients all year long.
I use CandiQuik for the white chocolate. There are many different brands of candy coating and any one of them will work. CandiQuik looks like this:
It comes in vanilla and chocolate.
Here is another version of bark that I made a couple of years ago ~ Cranberry Nut Chocolate Bark
1 pkg vanilla CandiQuik
1 bag hard, round peppermint candy
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Unwrap the peppermints and place in a ziplock bag. Smash all the peppermints in the bag with a meat mallet or a rolling pin until all the pieces are small.
Melt all the CandiQuik according to the package directions. At this point, I dump the melted chocolate into a bowl and then dump in the peppermints and mix well.
Pour over the parchment paper and let harden. If it seems to be taking a long time to harden, place in the refrigerator until hardened.
Break up into pieces with your hands.
