Quick & Easy Peppermint Bark

This peppermint bark is so easy to make and only uses 2 ingredients!

  My son needed a holiday treat for his school party and I was short on time. So I made peppermint bark. His whole class loved the candy and everyone requested the recipe. They were shocked at how easy it was to make. This delicious peppermint candy only needs white chocolate chips and candy canes. It can be made in less than 30 minutes. You will never buy storebought peppermint bark again.

Quick & Easy Peppermint Bark
   1 bag white chocolate chips
     1 box 12 count candy canes

Unwrap the candy canes and crush into small pieces. I crushed my candy canes in my blender on chop for a couple of seconds. If you don't have a blender or food processor, you can crush them in a bowl with a potato masher or in a zip lock bag. Set the candy aside and line a baking sheet with a silicone sheet, wax paper, or parchment paper. Place the white chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl and cook on high for 1 and a half minutes. Stir and cook in 30-second increments until melted. Make sure to stir after each 30-second cookings. Do not lick the spoon as doing so will get moisture on the chocolate and cause it to crumbled and not melt. Once the chocolate is melted, stir in the crushed candy canes. Then spread the mixture on the lined baking sheet and smooth it out to cover the entire pan. Let cool for an hour or until hard. Then break the candy into pieces.
