Holiday Peppermint Bark
2 cups (12oz.) White Morsels
24 hard peppermint candies, unwrapped
Line baking sheet with wax paper. Melt morsels in medium, uncovered, microwave safe bowl on medium high (70%) for 1 minute, stir. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If necessary, microwave an additional 10 to 15 second intervals, stirring until just melted. Place peppermint candies in heavy duty plastic bag and crush using rolling pin. Holding strainer over melted morsels, pour crushed candy into strainer. Shake to release small candy pieces; reserve larger candy pieces. Stir morsel-peppermint mixture. Spread mixture on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved candy pieces; press lightly. Let stand until firm, about 1 hour. Break into pieces. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
UPDATE: My friend Deanne at Five Brothers One Sister suggested also making the bark with milk chocolate or dark chocolate for an assortment of different simple treats so I wanted to share that with you, too!!!
