Great recipe, especially after a minor change! I turned this recipe into 'Double Chocolate Peppermint Brittle' by first making a layer of dark chocolate on the foil. Once that was set up, I proceeded with this recipe, and spread it over the dark layer (an offset spatula works great here!). When you break it, it looks quite similar to a candy that is sold by a national kitchen chain...and it's so much cheaper to make it at home!Thanks for a treat that everyone loves! ** Update ** Made this again, and have another tip! Put the crushed peppermint into a strainer, and shake the finest particles into the white chocolate. Then, reserve the bigger chunks to place on top of the white chocolate, for more texture, and professional appearance. Wow! Beautiful...just beautiful!Read More

I modified this recipe to make what we call Peppermint Bark in my family. I used about 1 pound of semi-sweet and 1 pound of white chocolate. I melted the semi-sweet choc and spread it on as the bottom layer, then put it in the freezer to harden while I melted the white choc and crushed the mints. I used 30 Starlight mints instead of candy canes. I crushed half of the mints into a fine powder that I mixed into the melted white chocolate before spreading it as the top layer. I crushed the other half of the mints more coarsely and sprinkled them over the top. Tastes great!
I love this recipe but I had to work with it a few times to make it pretty. I found it easier to melt the chocolate on the stove top in a small double boiler. I only melted one pound of chocolate at a time. I crushed 4 regular size candy canes and mixed them in the cocolate and then spread it on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. It works best if it is spread thin, not too thick. Then I had one candy cane crushed to a fine powder that I sprinkled on top while it was still warm, this made them shimmer and look so much more appealing. Then I chilled it in the fridge for about 30 minutes before breaking it up!
Great Recipe. Here's a suggestion. After crushing the peppermint candies, put them in a sieve. All of the peppermint "dust" gets stirred into the melted chocolate to flavor it. After it is poured into the pan, sprinkle the bigger pieces on top. It looks really pretty! I also like to drop a few spoons full of melted milk chocolate (or semi-sweet if you prefer)into the white chocolate after it is poured into the pan, them swirl it with a knife and and sprinkle pieces of peppermint on top. It looks like the Peppermint Bark that you buy in specialty shops!
so good, so easy. however, one suggestion, put wax paper or parchment paper down in the pan before pouring it in. it makes it SO much easier to break apart.
So easy! I don't like white chocolate either, but love this candy! I add a drop or two of peppermint extract to the melted chocolate and it gives it a subtle boost of mint flavor. And I just sprinkle the candies on top (instead of stirring it into the chocolate) so the small crystals give it some sparkle.
Super easy and very yummy!!! Lots of compliments on this!! Better than Williams-Sonoma's!! I used white chocolate chips and melted those...
I made this two toned with a layer of dark chocolate mixed with peppermint extract on the bottom. Great for little gifts.
So easy-lots of requests for this recipe-will definitely make this again.
This is just about the best (and fast) chocolate thingy I've ever made. I just grabbed the half bag of chocolate chips I had and another bag of white ch. chips. I followed another reviewers suggestion and used melted chocolate chips (and then stirred in some chopped almonds) as one layer and spread them in two tin foil pie pans and put those in the freezer while I melted the white chocolate in the micro. I then added some smashed peppermint candies, spread it on top of the dark chocolatre, which had set up and put it in the frig. 30 minutes later, it was ready. When it's hard, cover it with something before you give it a good bang on the counter......dish towel, foil, whatever......otherwise, some pieces may jump out and into your mouth. This is a wonderful year round recipe and the next time, I'll forget the peppermint and use chopped nuts or whatever. Only caution I would give is if you're not familiar with chocolate, just melt it on half power in the micro until they appear to be melting....then see if you can mix them. Don't overmelt. They should still be holding their shape when they're ready to stir and spread.
I like to make this recipe using 6 oz of white baking chocolate and 8 oz of semi-sweet baking chocolate. I tend to use the round peppermint candies, though I think candy canes would be easier to crush. Half of the crushed candy get mixed into each bowl of melted chocolate. Then the two are spooned onto waxed paper, swirled with a knife and allowed to cool. Mixing the chocolates gives it a pretty appearance and is great for those who tend to like darker chocolates.
This brittle WAS excellent. A little expensive to make, but worth it for special occasions. It is also very easy & quick, but the result does appear so. I made this in Oct to freeze for Christmas gift baskets, but have to make another batch as it's been nibbled away by the family.It freezes well by the way...:)
This is a tasty recipe that is great for the holidays, I always give tins full of cookies and other goodies for gifts to friends and family and this is a must have in them. When making it, make sure you don't pour it in to small of a dish or the pieces will be so thick that it will be to hard to break apart. I recommend making them a little thinner then thick. About the thickness of a hershey bar.
really great recipe, i made this for a cookie exchange and it was a big hit. Instead of pouring the mixture into the jelly roll pan i used a mini ice cream scoop to pour it into mini muffin cups and saved a little of the crushed canes for the top it also works well wit milk chocolate or a combination of both.
Very easy and tasty. I used Ghirardelli white chocolate chips. They melted beautifuly and quickly in the microwave. I prefer the taste of individual red and white mint candies to candy canes. The individual candies seem to have greater flavor. This is also a terrific recipe to make with kids. They enjoy crunching up the hard candies!
Excellent recipe. I used the suggestions by others to first put a layer of semi-sweet chocolate then used the white chocolate (not a great fan of white chocolate--too sweet). The combo of the semi and white was perfect! One suggestion-I halved the recipe and when I went to smack the pan to break the brittle it didn't break so well. Maybe I should stick to the original recipe. P.S. My husband loved this and he hates white chocolate!
good!the only thing is, the foil stuck to the brittle a little bit. maybe wax paper would have been better?
Super easy, super good. If you like white chocolate, try this recipe. I bought Ghirardelli white chocolate from Trader Joe's. Much cheaper than the super market!
Rather than crush the candy, I use a blender to crush (pulverize) it. Be carefull when you "blend" the candy, put only a few in the blender at a time. Sometimes the candy can stick together (especially if you use the round peppermint candies instead of canes; 1 bag candy for 2 bags white morsels) and lock up the blender. Lean the blender on it's side (hold onto the lid) and stand it up to feed the candy into the blades. Also, peppermint candy dust is very sticky and gets everywhere so let the dust settle in the blender before you poor it into a bowl. Crush the candy before you melt the chocolate. The pulverized candy gives a more even/smooth peppermint flavor and melts in your mouth along with the white chocolate. Yummmmm
This was sooooo easy. I was going to make chocolate dipped cand canes until I discovered they were all cracked. I made mine a bit thicker by using a smaller cookie sheet and then sprinkling them with multi-colored sprinkles before they cooled. These are fantastic teacher gifts!!! Thanks again! :-)
My mother loves Fannie May Peppermint Bark, but there is no store here anymore, so I tried this for her. We thought it tasted the same! It is very yummy and very easy. I added some red food coloring to make it pinkish like she was used to. We can't stop eating it!
I made this recipe just as written and it turned out perfectly and was a HUGE hit. This is something I will make every year, and it makes a lot of candy, so there's plenty to share.
Adding melted chocolate by spoonfulls was an excellent idea! It turns out gtreat. For the baker who added extract and ruined her batch of candy, you can never add any flavor of extract to candy, there are however, special candy flavorings you can purchase almost any place (walmart) that made a big difference adding just 2 drops of candy flavoring!
needed to be thinner
The result that you get for so little effort is awesome with this recipe. I love this candy! You can also use "white almond bark" intead of the white chocolate. It is cheaper and a bit less rich.
This is a great recipe. I make it now every Christmas as gifts for my family. I added an extra touch that really makes it great. Melt 2 pounds of semi-sweet chocolate as well and pour on top of the already chilled candy. Chill for another hour. Delicious!!!!!
I had so much fun with this recipe. I did a couple of different varieties and everyone loved them! I think this would be really festive if the white chocolate had red and/or green food colouring added. The candy canes that I find in the UK aren't as strong tasting as the ones I could get in the US. I think I would add a tiny bit of peppermint flavouring just to pump up the flavour some.
I made it as other viewer suggested--melt semi sweet chocolate and pour it on the button of the pan first, chill for bit before pouring white chocolate/peppermint mixture on top of semi sweet chocolate and chill. It was very good:) I gave it as holiday treats to my neighbors and got good feedback~!
It is so important to use a high quality chocolate for this to come out. "Nestle Chocolate" products do not work well with this recipe. Ghirardelli works best.. Bakers works well, though. After trial and error, I changed it up... dark on bottom, white on top. Mixed one teaspoon Organic Peppermint extract in dark after it melted. Topped dark with tiny pecan pieces and smaller chunks of candy canes. Strained the candy cane dust and mixed it in the white.. then topped the white with the larger chuncks of candy cane... rave reviews.
I made this for teacher gifts. I cut a 15"x15" square of colored cellophane and put the candy in the middle, bunched it all together, and tied curling ribbon around it. It was a BIG hit! Thanks for this recipe!
Great hit as Christmas gifts
i have made for christmas. had to lick bowl. it is great. i used 2 bags of 11oz white chocolate chip. melted with alittle oil thanks, joy kocher
I've made this for years now. You can switch out your type of chocolate and type of hard candy for other flavor combos. The best tip you'll ever get about this kind of candy is: NEVER let water near your chocolate :) Even 1 drop--even 1 drop of food coloring--can and will ruin your chocolate!
I followed the advise of others and did a layer of dark chocolate on the bottom as well. It was very yummy and will do it again. my only recommendation is not to let the dark cool too much because then when you break it the dark separates from the white, if it is still soft they will bond better together. I fixed it by putting them in the oven for about 7 minutes on a very low heat to gently remelt it together.
We do this every year for christmas. The only change that I do, is that I put a thin layer of melted chocolate chips on the bottom of a jelly roll pan. Then I like to use the Ghiradelli white baking chocolate mixed with crushed candy canes, reserving a few to press into the top of my white chocolate/crushed candies mixture...Very good!! Is a duplicate of some I bought years ago at a specialty shop in Mall of America in Mnpls.
Super easy and delish! I would not recommend microwaving the chocolate though because you need to be constantly stirring it. I wasted my first batch because the chocolate completely hardened. I heated the chocolate directly over the stove stirring the ENTIRE time and it worked out perfectly!
I normally make peppermint patties and I've done a huge huge batch this year. Decided to make this recipe but make them thick, because I had leftover candy canes and almond bark. It worked out with the leftovers I had and set up quickly. Peppermint anything is great in my house.
I took someone's suggestion and layered 1# semi sweet chocolate and 1# white chocolate with the crushed candies on top, cooling between layers. I did run into a little problem when I began to brake the candies into pieces. The top layer separated from the bottom layer. To remedy that, I simply put the entire cookie sheet into a 200* oven for a few minutes until I thought both layers were re-melted. With out disturbing the layers, let cool. This time when broken into bite size pieces, the layers remained together. It looks professional and festive. It is also tasty. A nice addition to a holiday cookie tray or by itself in a special candy dish.
I used white almond bark. I spread it really thin and had enough for one jelly roll pan and one cookie sheet. Awesome!!! Thank you!!!!!
I ended up making this recipes with candy canes (I used 12 large candy canes)and they turned out delicious! Very simple to make and they add nice color to your Christmas cookies. You could use different flavored candy canes too for a different twist to this recipe.
This was very yummy and EASY, which is always appreciated around the hectic holidays. I did find that microwaving the chocolate didn't work well and I needed to finish melting it over a simmering pot of hot water to get the smooth consistency. Also, I think I crushed my candy canes too fine... next time I will do a little bigger chunks to my preference.
This recipe was incredibly easy to make and the end product was DELICIOUS! I crushed a couple extra candy canes and sprinkle over the top of the chocolate, once I had spread it out in the pan to give it a more finished appearance. EXCELLENT!!!
I loved this recipe cause I'm not a fan of dark chocolate, so the white chocolate works great for me. I did as others suggested, I melted the white chocolate in a double boiler which made the chocolate nice and smooth. I also did as another suggested and used a flour sifter to place the broken candy cane which made it easy to use the dust pieces to flavor the chocolate and the larger pieces that stayed in the sifter I used at the end to make it nice and pretty.
SO simple and easy and delicious fro christmas eve. pretty.
LOVE this stuff! Everyone has went crazy for it. I melted the chocolate in the microwave, which was easy. Next I added 1 tsp. peppermint extract to the chocolate to give it a bit more mint taste. I did incorporate the mint "dust" from the candy canes into the chocolate and then push the bigger bits into the top. I also added a few drops of red and green food coloring here and there and swirled them with a toothpick. Hubby said they looked like something out of a candy store and even though he isn't big on mint, he loved them.
Fantastic! Make sure you use the best quality chocolate or else it will be waxy.
Add a teaspoon (or more) of peppermint extract to this recipe. Also, it helps if you own a food processor to smash up those candy canes, as it creates a little powder along with those chunks of peppermint to stir into the chocolate, which likewise boosts the peppermint flavor some.
Used CandyQuik and definately didn't turn out as well as using reg chocolate. tastes too "soft" with CandyQuik, but it's still sugary good!
Oh wow, this was good!! So easy too. I used approx. 20 large candy canes, but it would have been easier to use the small ones. My kids had fun pounding the candy canes with a mallet to crush them. I used Trader Joe's white chocolate chips (a little over 3 bags). I didn't want to scorch them in the microwave, so I melted them in a Pyrex bowl over a pan of simmering water. The melted perfectly this way. Very nice and smooth. I mixed most of the crushed candy canes into the chocolate, and sprinkled some on top. The brittle didn't break apart at first, we had to poke a butter knife into them and break them that way. Still super easy though. It's hard to stay out of them! We're keeping it in the fridge because it melts easily. We packaged most of it to give away, and kept a small amount for ourselves- it's half gone already!
This was so PRETTY and very easy! I took others' suggestion on two things: 1). Use starlight mints (the round, individually wrapped peppermint candies). They have more peppermint oil than candy canes, thus more peppermint flavor in your brittle. 2). Don't stir the candy into the white chocolate, it was prettier just sprinkled on top. Thanks for this TERRIFIC simple recipe Brenda!
Wow, this stuff is pretty good. I used 1 bag of Nestle white chocolate chips,and 1 bag of Premier Chocolatier white morsels, some crushed up starlight mints, and a few full size candy canes crushed up too. My family loved this. They do want me to do a layer of dark chocolate to spread this on top of. Good stuff though.
This is so easy and so good and ALOT cheaper to make than paying $28 a pound for in the dept. store! Can easily make it with the dark chocolate layer on bottom too! Good recipe!!!
I used mixture of white chips (Nestle) and candy melts. Tried adding layer of dark chocolate as others had suggested and didn't work for me - didn't meld together. Used as part of Christmas goodies for co-workers and told by many it was very good.
use the best white chocolate
This pretty candy is easy and delicious. It's a Christmas tradition at our house. I make 1/2 of the recipe at a time, and spread it thinly on a foil-covered cookie sheet. Once it hardens, simply break into small pieces. Add a few drops of red food color to make a pretty pink!
Great easy candy to make - I used red and green mint bits that are available in candy supply stores - provides a different taste.
This recipe was so simple and turned out delicious!! To break up the candy canes, I put them in a double plastic shopping bags, and stepped on them.
Worked well,, I out the peppermint in the bullet, worked much better than smashing them,, less mess .
My husband and I made this with three different chocolates swirling them together making a bark. We put the peppermint in the white chocolate. It turned out excellent and was so easy!
So many variations with different candies, nuts, fruit and types of chocolate
I did the double layer thing with dark chocolate on the bottom (1 lb of each). Sifted the small peppermint bits into the white chocolate and then the bigger chunks on top. I would've liked to have had more peppermint flavor tho, so I may add peppermint extract to the white chocolate next time. The only other thing was the two layers did want to seperate some. But most stayed together. I think the key is not letting the bottom layer set up all the way. This may cause a little swirling of the two, but doesn't affect the taste!
Surprisingly delicious! Based on other recommendations I did add a teaspoon of peppermint extract to the melted almond bark. Next time I will add crushed peppermint candies to the bark before letting it harden. Also, when you add the crushed peppermint on top of the spread out bark you need to smush it into the bark. If not, it won't stick. It didn't harden as well as I would have liked it to. Next time I may add a bit of cornstrach to see if that will help. All-in-all a great dessert! I will make again!
Very good, but very sweet! The more you crush the peppermint sticks the more pink your brittle becomes.
Who'd ever believe that such a simple recipe could be so delightful and appreciated?! I gave this as gifts last Christmas and received in return the joyous mmmms of family! Thank you.
I had some problems with this... actually, quite the disaster with melting the white chocolate. I went through 4 bags of it before I got it right. Yikes. So, for beginning bakers, be careful about overheating the white chocolate. Set your microwave at level 5 or 6 heat, and check on it every 10-15 seconds. When I got it right, I only nuked it for about a minute and 15 seconds (that was for one bag). It hardens really fast, so sprinkle the peppermint decorations as you're spreading it onto the sheet, or else they won't stick onto it. After 2 tries, I got it right and they turned out really cute. I just wish I knew more about melting white chocolate.
Did half dark choc. and half white choc but the dark choc was too overpowering. Next time will do 1/4 dark and 3/4 white. Crush candy canes with the plastic wrapper on so it stays in one place.
Easy recipe. I put a layer of milk chocolate first. I used candy melts and added a few drops of peppermint oil. Yummy!
This was great, but melted too easily. If someone could PLEASE tell me how you cook with wax (heard it mentioned a few times in other candy recipes) I would greatly appreciate it. I think that would make the difference in this recipe being good to it being great.
Very good and easy to make. I used half white chic. and half semi-sweet choc. and 4 regular sized candy canes. Like the other reviewers I melted the dark choc. first, spread it in the pan and then I melthed the white choc., mixed it with the the candy canes and spread over the dark choc. One thing to note if you do this, the dark choc. takes longer to harden than the white choc.
It doesn't get much easier than this! Along with Oreo Cookie Bark, it's one of those things that can be made in a trice by anyone any age. My kids made this as their annual edible gift at the last possible minute (evening Christmas Eve). White chocolate melts in the mikey, candy canes in the food processor, and bang! A done deal. It looked very pretty, and tasted lovely.
Absolutely delicious! I read a few of the top reviews and took the advice. I melted two packages of semi-sweet chocolate chips for the bottom layer. I also crushed my candycanes in a food processor - it was perfect. I sifted out the finest powder and mixed it in with the white chocolate, which I then spread overtop of the bottom layer. I took the bigger chunks from the food processor and sprinkled it overtop of the white chocolate. Perfect!
tasted okay, but the presentation with the other munchies were awesome! used red and white, but colored ones might be pretty too.
After reading some of the great reviews, I decided to try it, I started with melting semi sweet chocolate, put in freezer, and then went and melted a package of the white chocolate. I poured on top of the chocolate, which was semi frozen, it turned out perfect because the white starting melting the chocolate, which made a really nice swirl mixed in with the peppermint candy, delicious!!!
I took ideas from the other reviews and did a thin layer of milk chocolate bark with a thicker layer of the white chocolate on top. I picked out coarse candy cane pieces and saved them to sprinkle on top - turned out great, perhaps better than any other candy recipe we do each year!
Very easy addition to a candy plate. Try with lemon drops, too. Watch the size of the candy chips to avoid a chipped tooth.
This is an easy and delicious recipe. It's a nice addition to your Christmas cookie trays. Sometimes I add a drop or two of red food coloring for some color.
I'm not a huge fan of white chocolate, but this was very good!
mmmm!! this stuff is sooo good and soo addicting. don't mind that other reviewer who said to only give a little since it gets old. i could have all of it if i really wanted to! unfortunately, i was making this to give away as christmas gifts and it was a hit!! everybody loved it. and my family wants me to make more now that there's none left since i gave it all away. i also used the peppermint candies instead and it turned out fantastic. so..i'll be making this again very very soon...
I'm giving this 4 stars because I used this recipe as a base... I did a layer of dark chocolate. When I pounded my candy canes, some of the candy cane became a fine powder. So I sifted that out from the chunks and sprinkled it on the dark choco layer. Then I put it in the freezer while I melted the white choco. Once that melted I added 1/8 tsp of peppermint extrace then poured the white choco over the dark choco and then sprinkled the candy cane chunks. I froze it again for a couple hours. I melted the choco in my double boiler. SO YUMMY!!!
So easy. I used both dark and whilte candy coating. To get a layered look I layered the chocolate in a silicone muffin tin let it harden. I then put the crushed candy canes in the white candy coating then layered that on top of the chocolate. Sprinkle a little crushed candy cane on top and it was so pretty.
I make this every year and wanted to send a little tid bit out to you all who will make this yummy treat. This year I tried to put a layer of dark chocolate ontop of the white. I let the bottom white layer cool and then did my layer of dark chocolate. After it cooled and I went to cut it, some of the top layer came off from the bottom. Not too much but it did seperate. I think next time I will put down the white layer and then let that sit and do my chocolate layer and swirl it together a little bit, that might make it stay together better.
I used Peppermint AND Spearamint Stars and drizzled with milk chocolate for extra color and flavor. Turned out GREAT! :)
I added a layer of chocolate down first. When I went to break it up the chocolate and the peppermint did not stick together. Bad if you are making it for a gift. Ok if you just set the pan out for a snack or at a informal party. The flavor was really good. I crushed the peppermint sticks in the food processor until it was a powder so no one would hurt their teeth.
This recipe was sooo yummy. I added peppermint extract to the chocolate, and I also made some with dark chocolate. I recommend not putting it in the fridge or freezer when its hot, because it will get sticky on top. I will make this again!
yummy and fun to make! I used white choc./almond from Walmart and it was good. As another user recommended I also put about a TBSP of peppermint flavoring into the melted chocolate for added taste which turned out good. I let it dry on wax paper outside (about 32degrees) for about 10minutes and I was able to break it up immediately then.
Yum! I was craving those peppermint Kisses that I can't find ANYWHERE anymore, so this was my best shot at getting rid of those cravings. I used one 11oz bag of ghiradelli white chocolate chips, 16 finely crushed mini candy canes (I crushed them in a clean coffee grinder! Worked marvelously.), and 3 thickly chopped candy canes on top. This way, the crushed candy canes mixed in melt in your mouth with the chocolate, but there's still a crunch from the topping. Try it! Spread them a little thinner and make a little more than you would feel comfortable with ;)
Was so fast and easy that I made four batches in one afternoon. I plan on playing with various candy flavors to add to the brittle. Love, Love, Love
This was EXCELLENT and SUPER EASY. Very kid-friendly if you have little chefs in the house. I used a mixture of green (spearmint) and red (peppermint) starlight mints crushed up. And I used melted white chocolate chips b/c I couldn't find white bars. It's so festive-looking and really delicious!
My teenage daughter loved it. Took only minutes to make. A great gift item too.
I got rave reviews on this one! Served it in a potluck last Saturday and everybody loved it! :D
I grew up having this candy every Christmas, and decided that I'd continue the tradition with my family. My husband loves white chocolate, so I knew he'd love it. I used 12 large candy canes for the amount of white chocolate in the recipe. It takes some work to get it all chopped up small, so I'd suggest crushing the peppermint before melting the chocolate.
Try dropping a piece into your coffee or hot chocolate and give it a stir!! Excellent, festive, and easy!!
This brittle was okay. The peppermint started to "sweat" after about a day or so...Since this was my first shot at peppermint brittle, I'm not sure if that's normal or not. I just don't like sweaty food. LOL. The first day it was good though...
Good recipe as is... but I followed the suggestions of others to make it great. I melted 2 bags of dark chocolate chips and spread into a cookie sheet lined with parchment. I let that cool. Then I melted about 1 pound of white chocolate, adding 1 tablespoon of peppermint extract. I separated the fine peppermint particles from the larger pieces after I crushed it by using a sifter. I stirred the fine pieces into the white chocolate. I poored this over the dark chocolate and sprinkled the top with the larger pieces, pressing them into the chocolate with an off-set spatula. After it was completely cooled, breaking it apart was a little tough as I think it was a bit thick but it looked really pretty and tasted great! It looks impressive, too.
This was so easy and delicious I'll definitely make this again next year.
I made this recipe for christmas and it was excellent! I used Merkans white cholocate and I think that made it creamer!
This went over well with everyone! My son especially loved it! I'm thinking of trying it with crushed cinnamon discs.
This turned out great, but I found it to be a bit tricky when layering semi-sweet chocolate under the white chocolate. I kept getting a muddy mess as the heat from the white chocolate would start to melt the semi-sweet layer! What worked best for me was to increase the amount of semi-sweet chips to about a bag and a half, pop the cookie sheet in the fridge for about a half hour, and then dump the white chocolate (also increased to a bag and a half) on top of the semi-sweet layer in BATCHES. By applying the white chocolate a little at a time, it didnt allow the semi-sweet layer to warm up so fast. You still have to work quickly though. By increasing the amount of chips, I felt that this batch of bark was much sturdier than my previous batch where I used only one bag per chocolate layer.
Very good. I used smashed peppermint flavored oreos in place of the candies.
