Peppermint Bark Candy

Recipe Information
Super Simple, Very Quick & Keeps Well

Sheila Kosko

Serves/Makes:1 lb.

  • 1 package of white candy coating (usually comes in a 1 lb (.5 kg). block in the chocolate chip section)
  • 6 candy canes
  • Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
  • Crush candy canes into very small pieces.
  • Melt candy coating in a bowl in microwave on high for 1 minute.
  • Stir and microwave another 30 seconds.
  • Pour crushed candy canes into melted coating and stir quickly only 'til candy canes are coated.
  • Pour the mixture onto the wax paper.
  • Spread into a semi-thin layer and let cool.
  • When the mixture is firm, break into pieces.
  • Place in air tight containers or baggies.
This is a variation of "Almond Bark" candy. You can substitute white chocolate for the candy coating if you prefer. Of course, the candy coating is less expensive. I have found the 1 lb. package at Dollar General for $2. The candy hardens pretty quickly but if you want it SUPER FAST, put it in the frige or freezer for a few minutes.

***IMPORTANT: Make sure that when you make this that your spoon and bowl are completely dry...or the candy will not not melt properly*** I didn't read the package directions once and tried to add food coloring and had to throw it all away!
