Peppermint Bark

For those of you that don't know me I don't dabble too much into sweets, I LOVE food just not the sugary kind. But since the holidays are coming up I figured I'll mix it up a little and take a go at it with some peppermint bark. Let me just say...SUCCESS! SO good and so easy to make with only 3 ingredients. It's like Christmas in a package!

Ingredients:
1 bag of milk chocolate chips
1 bag of white chocolate chips
1 cup of crushed candy canes

Method:
seal candy canes in a ziploc bag and crush with the end of a rolling pin or a meat mallet until there are no large chunks
melt milk chocolate chips over a double boiler (if you don't know what this is google it)
spread the melted milk chocolate in a thin layer on about an 18 in. piece of parchment paper (not too thin, you don't want to see any parchment)
sprinkle 1/3 of the crushed candy canes onto the warm chocolate then
place in the fridge until hardened, about 20 min
mean while, melt the white chocolate over a double boiler
once melted spread the white chocolate over the hardened milk chocolate,
sprinkle the remaining crushed candy canes on top and this may sound weird, buuuttttt spray your hand with non-stick spray so the melted chocolate doesn't stick and gently press the crushed candy cane into the warm chocolate
place in the fridge to set for at least 30 min
break apart and enjoy!
