Peppermint Bark

I think that Grace and I have it narrowed down....what sort of treat to take to our neighborhood exchange. Something pepperminty...that was agreed upon. This is a recipe that our dear friend B.H always makes. It is easy and good. Two words I LOVE when it comes to recipes!
1 bag white chocolate chips
A good handful (or so) of peppermints (or 2-3 candy canes)
Some people add nuts. If your family is nuts like mine...erp...I mean, EATS nuts like mine, it is a nice addition. Ahem.
Melt the white chocolate chips over low heat until smooth. Spread wax paper on a cookie sheet or brownie pan.
Spread white chocolate on wax paper with a spatula.
You can swirl in a bit of red food coloring for added color OR add more for pink bark!
Crush the peppermints or candy canes with a mallet. Ball bat. Sledgehammer. Whatever.
Sprinkle peppermint on top and put in refrigerator until cool and hardened.
Pull candy from fridge and carefully break up into pieces.
Could not be easier and really is delicious!
Okay. That decision is out of the way....on to the 2879 others!

Wow, your Peppermint Bark sounds wonderful! I'll have to give your recipe a try. Do you package it in little cellophane bags with pretty ribbons or put it in tins? I have a cookie exchange to attend next month and I found a good refrigerator cookie recipe I'm going to try. I can make the dough ahead of time and then slice and bake the cookies the weekend before the exchange. I'm all for easy and good!!!

Uh huh, we package it in cellophane bags with ribbon, or in a tin if we make a lot for gifts. I also gave some in pretty little boxes once, some were red, shaped just like Chinese take out boxes. With the little handle and all! : )

Gee, don'tcha love something so easy but that tastes good??
