Instructions Checklist
  • Microwave white chocolate chips in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH until almost melted, about 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after every 20 seconds. Remove bowl from microwave and stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in peppermint extract.

  • Spread on large foil-lined baking sheet to 1/4-inch thickness. Add food color, drop by drop, over mixture. Using a wooden skewer, swirl color through chocolate. Sprinkle with crushed candies, pressing lightly into chocolate with spatula.

  • Refrigerate about 10 minutes or until firm. Break into irregular pieces to serve. Store in covered container at cool room temperature or in refrigerator up to 5 days.

Test Kitchen Tips:

Substitute 12 ounces white baking chocolate, coarsely chopped, for the white chocolate chips.

Before sprinkling on the peppermint candies, sift the crushed candies through a fine strainer to remove any ultrafine, dustlike pieces.

As with any recipe, in order to rate it, you should make it AS IS!! To rate a recipe that's been changed by the rating party (rate-ee) is, unfair to say the least. Then you are not rating the original recipe. In a way, you are rating your own recipe. What is the point of that?? There are many fabulous recipes on Allrecipes.com. This is one of them. That being said, I made it as is. Candy of any kind, scares me. Candy thermometer, huh? Soft ball stage, What? I do NOT own a thermometer except for the human and pet kind. This recipe is so easy. I like it very much because it doesn't require a candy thermometer. It's also very good. This would be a great kids first time cooking recipe. I just made it and it came out perfect. It is full of minty, sweet white chocolate goodness. I did not nor will not change a thing except to double it next time. Thank you for sharing and the great recipe. Read More

I decided to give this a try because I absolutely love Hershey's Candy Cane flavored kisses. This recipe is almost exactly like them at a much cheaper price! I am going to make more for Christmas gifts! Thanks for the recipe. Read More

When microwaving the chips we checked and stirred after each 30 second interval total of 90 seconds. We did 1 & 1/2 recipe because we had that amount of ingredients. The ratio of peppermint extract was good. Didn't use the food coloring just a lot of peppermint candy. Great quick recipe! Read More
