How to make Peppermint Bark

I posted this a few years ago but had to re-post it because it's one of my favorite holiday treats. I love peppermint bark! It's so easy to make and tastes so good!
Check out my step by step instructions on how to make your own peppermint bark. 

Peppermint Bark

1 bag of milk chocolate
1 bag of white chocolate
1 teaspoon of peppermint extract
1 box of peppermint candy canes

Line the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
Crush candy canes and set aside.

Melt milk chocolate in a double boiler.
Guiitard is my favorite brand of chocolate chips.

Stir in peppermint extract.

Poor into 9 x 13 pan and smooth with a spatula.
pour 1 /2 the candy canes on top.
Set in refrigerator to cool.

Once the milk chocolate has cooled, melt white chocolate in a double boiler.

poor white chocolate over the milk chocolate and smooth into an even layer with a spatula.
poor the remaining candy canes over the white chocolate.
Set in refrigerator to cool.

Once the peppermint bark is cool and hard, break into small chunks.
Let the bark sit for 10-20 minutes or until it has reached room temperature and serve.

Makes a great present for neighbors, co workers or friends.
