Peppermint Bark

Makes 2 1/4 pounds or one 11x17 in sheet

2 Pounds White Chocolate(Not white chocolate chips. I buy Merckens white or dark chocolate which is designed for candy making. They have a much better flavor than the Wiltons chocolate wafers.)
12 Large Candy Canes (6 oz crushed candy)
1/2 teaspoon peppermint Oil (Not extract)


1. Line an 11x17 in. baking sheet with parchment, and set aside.
2. In a double boiler, melt white chocolate, stirring constantly.
3. With a chef knife or meat tenderizer, pound candy canes in 1/4 in pieces. Don't crush too much so that you have peppermint powder.
4. Stir pieces of candy canes (reserve a little to sprinkle on top) and peppermint oil into melted chocolate. Remove from heat, and pour evenly. Sprinkle remaining peppermint pieces on top. Chill until firm, 25 to 30 min. Break into pieces, and serve. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator.
