It’s time to deck the halls… And our food blogs with holiday treats! This one came as a request from my parents, it is their absolute favorite candy to eat during Christmas time. Good thing is, it is super easy to make and also quite fun!

Ingredients:

16 oz semi-sweet milk chocolate (four 4oz bars)
3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
16 oz white chocolate (four 4oz bars)
Candy canes, crushed

Tip: good quality ingredients will leave you with better tasting candy

Start by melting the milk chocolate in a glass bowl sitting over a pot of gently boiling water. Once melted, add the peppermint extract and stir. Take off heat and pour onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread evenly to desired thickness and let sit in fridge until hardened.

In the meantime, melt the white chocolate in the same manner. Once the milk chocolate has hardened, pour the white chocolate over and spread evenly over top the milk chocolate.

Crush candy canes and sprinkle over white chocolate while it is still melted. The chocolate should be pretty well covered with the candy. I like to break the candy into fine pieces.

Put the baking sheet back in fridge until the chocolate has hardened completely. Once this is done, remove from fridge and break the candy into pieces sized to your preference. They should not be perfect cuts.

Then serve! 🙂

Merry Christmas everyone!
