Peppermint Bark


This is a great candy to make for Christmas
and Valentine's Day, too!


I usually crush up candy canes in my food processor,
but look what I found this year!  
Crushed peppermint already done!  Perfect!
The only other ingredient is almond bark!


Melt the bark in the microwave and add the peppermint.


Stir together and spread onto parchment paper.


After it has hardened, break into pieces!


Yum.

  3. Love the minty flavored goodies that come out at the holidays. Those mint M n M's are pretty yummy. Candy canes, real peppermint ones, are always good. And then there are the minty flavored cookies that I find so impossible to resist. If that wasn't enough there is now peppermint bark to contend with.

    (For some unknown reason Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream just popped into my mind...)

  5. Oh how I wish I liked peppermint... It's the only taste my taste buds refuse to like. Well, maybe Kidney Pie...but try as I might...even again this year I tried some and it's just not for me.... Is that sad or what...because it looks wonderful, and I would make it for my peppermint loving family and friends.

    It's easy like the Microwave Peanut Brittle that I do love.

    Pehaps I should mail you the peppermint bark candy bar I received in a Christmas package this year!!!
