This was so delicious I made it three times over the Holidays. Everyone loved it. Followed the recipe ingredients exactly however changed a couple of procedures the second time. There is no need to break up the white chocolate and dip into the dark. Simply spread the melted dark chocolate over the white. As long as you add the shorthening the dark will stay in place when you break up the bark. I also switched from hard peppermint candies to the soft. It will not stick to your teeth the way the hard does. The candy literally melts in your mouth. Ohhh so good. Thanks for a real keeper. Read More

This turned out great just be sure to spread the white chocolate really thin or it gets to thick when you dip in dark. I also did a batch dipped in chopped peanuts very good too. Nice addition to my chrismas baking tins. Read More

I gave this 5 stars despite hating this recipe....because I only hate it since I can NOT stop eating it!!! It is sooooo good! I followed the recipe exactly. I have to say I got some aggression out while smashing the candy to smithereens which was awesome. I used a hammer. I highly suggest that method. Also I didn't bother with the measurements of the pans. While helpful as a guide let's face it this isn't meant to be a pristine uniform candy. It is like broken glass...pretty in its own right but who cares about particulars? So Daughter and I broke it up and tasted it to make sure it warranted the melted milk chocolate step...yep you can stop right there. Delicious! But take it to the next level and dip it in the chocolate?!!! Oh my! Absolutely wonderful. Too bad for everyone else as it will likely be gone before they try it. Thanks for sharing:) Read More

So yummy and pretty. The only thing I changed was to add a little peppermint extract to the white chocolate mixture. Read More

This is an excellent easy recipe but it can be easier. Instead of breaking apart the white chocolate and dipping it in the milk chocolate just remove the chocolate from the pan keeping it on the foil. Melt the milk chocolate then spread it in a thin layer over the white chocolate using an offset spatula. Break in to pieces when set. Easy-peezy! Read More

This recipe could not get easier! I decided to use a food processor to blend some of the peppermint candies and I put the rest in a zip-loc and smashed them up with a meat mallet (great stress reliever haha). This gave me two different textures in the candy and worked out really well. It's so good! Read More
