Fast, Easy, and Yummy Holiday Treats!

Peppermint Bark

Easy to prepare, no bake time and only three ingredients! The kids will enjoy crushing the candy canes in a gallon size baggie.  We love making this with any remaining candy canes from our tree before we take it down!  We get the traditional peppermint candy canes…but this might be good with other flavors as well.

 

Ingredients:

1 package white chocolate chips

¼ teaspoon peppermint extract (optional)

6 candy canes (slightly crushed)

microwave the chocolate chips in a glass bowl until just about melted (about 1 ½ minutes) stir with spoon until silky.  Add crushed candy cane and peppermint extract! Spread on cookie sheet lined with wax paper and let harden (about 15 minutes in freezer)  then break apart and eat.  These freeze well.
