I love this stuff - have not made it but want to. I wanted to share a helpful tip for making the crushed peppermint candy easier. Save the inner sack/liner of your next box of cereal or crackers. The flexible bag that is so hard to open most of the time. It is perfect for pounding almost anything and doesn't break tear or leak. Then you just throw it away once you're finished. I've used them for years and especially like how it holds up when I'm pounding boneless chicken breasts to flatten them. So try this easy tip and happy holiday cooking to all!
Have been making this for years and great for gifts and bazaars. An easy project for Scouts Sunday School or classroom use. Try using hard mint discs in red or green or multi-colored candy canes. Can use almond bark coating instead of white chocolate chips.
Couldn't be easier. I make this at Christmas and have just winged the proportions in the past. I normally use a little more candy cane than this. It works equally well with the almond bark they sell in bigger packages too. If you plan to make a bigger batch it's more economical.
I've been making this candy every year for Christmas and we love it. Not only you can make it with peppermint candy you can add pretzels with salted peanuts or you can add chinese noodle with salted peanuts in white chocolate or almond bark. They all very good.
I have tried this receipe several times. I used chocolate chips the first time. It was just okay. I decided to try the Amond Bark. I loved the white almond bark the best. I quadrupled the recipe 24 ounces of Almond Bark to 12 regular sized peppermint sticks. I prefer to crush the peppermint sticks very well otherwise they stick in your teeth. I put in a jelly roll pan and chilled for 1 hour. YUMMO! This makes a more chunkier bark which I loved. I have even done the Chocolate Bark White Almond bark and even did a layer of chocolate bark chilled for an hour a layer of White Almond bark on top chilled for another hour. It was good but the White Almond bark is my families favorite. I even told a friend about this recipe and she made it for her family this Christmas. They loved it too. It's easy and cheap and tastes like store bought. Merry Christmas!
I've made this many many times. I just vary one little detail. I like to add the candy on top after the melted chocolate has been spred out onto wax paper. The colors look so much more festive when you can see them! I gently and carefully press them into the chocolate with my hand but you can still see the colors of the candy canes. I hope you and your family enjoy making this as much as we do!
This is as easy as it gets - and yet so tasty and delicious! Super creamy and the peppermint flavor goes so well with the white chocolate. This is my son's favorite Christmas treat and is on the "to make" list each Holiday season. I like to smash the peppermint pieces pretty (leaving a few larger pieces) to really infuse the flavor throughout the white chocolate. I use a 12-oz package of white chocolate chips and about 30 pieces of round peppermint candies crushed.
Been making this for years with white almond bark. I love it the family loves it and it's SUPER easy!!!! I use a whole package of bark and a box (12 I think) of candy canes though sometimes I add more because I like it really minty.
