The edible Christmas gift all my friends are losing it over!

Okay, we must be really good friends because I am letting you in on my recipe for the peppermint bark I always give as gifts at Christmas time. It’s such a goodie. Everyone always loves it and it’s super easy to make – great for work friends, or any friends really.
What you’ll need:
125 g peppermint candy canes
250 g white chocolate, finely chopped
500 g milk chocolate, finely chopped
(This will make about x12 small gift bags)

What to do:

Line a baking tray/dish with baking paper.

Pop the candy canes into a zip lock bad and crush them using rolling pin or a can of of some kind (I often use the olive oil spray can to thump them around!), and set aside.


In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, heat the milk chocolate in 30 second increments in the microwave until melted. Homemade-Gifts-Peppermint-Bark

Pour the mixture into the baking tray and then add in the crushed candy canes (remembering to leave some for the white mixture still to come). Refrigerate overnight. 

Now, melt the white chocolate (the same procedure as with the milk chocolate) once melted, stir the rest of the crushed candy canes. Refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, remove the bark and break into pieces.
