Catching up!

We played catch up this weekend.

We finished all our Christmas shopping, except our gifts for each other.

I finished up the holiday cards and they are ready for stamps tomorrow.

And... I got another treat ready for the holidays :)

Peppermint Bark

Melt 2lbs of White Chocolate in double boiler.

Crush 12 peppermint candy canes and add to melted chocolate along with 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract.

Stir until smooth.

Spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Chill in refrigerator until hard, crack and serve.

Will last several weeks in a tin in the fridge.

That is my friend's favorite candy. People always buy it for her--no one ever has made it.

R2K, I was actually thinking of you when I made this, wondering if there was such a thing as Vegan candycanes? Or are they Vegan anyway? Oh I have so much to learn. You can make it in a flas, I think I was done in 15 minutes and that included the clean up :)

The candy canes I have run into are vegan. White chocolate, not so much--so I need to find a recipe to make it mock. Or else just use dark chocolate (which works for me anyway).

R2K dark chocolate would work great, I would sprinkle the candy can on top for the effect :)

Harmonia, welcome :)
