Keyword: Bark, Peppermint
2BagsWhite Baking Chips (12 oz)
12Regular Size Candy Canes
Line an 11x17 rimmed baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
Unwrap all the candy canes and break each one into a few pieces. Place the pieces in the food processor and pulse a few times to chop them into smaller bite-sized pieces.
Pour the two bags of white baking chips into a large microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute, stir, then heat for 1 minute more. The chips should now be melty enough to stir into a smooth consistency.
Add the 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract and the candy cane pieces to the melted white chocolate. Stir well to combine.
Pour the mixture onto the parchment paper lined pan and spread it out evenly. Then place in the refrigerator for about an hour so the mixture can harden up.
Once the mixture is hardened, lift it off the parchment paper and cut or crack it into pieces.
If you do not have a food processor, the candy canes could also be broken into pieces by placing them in a ziploc bag and crushing them with a rolling pin, hammer, meat mallet, etc.
