This weekend the bird & I conquered what is becoming one of our favorite holiday traditions.
Its delicious, fun to make together and great for small gifts.
1 bag White Chocolate Chips
1 bag Brown Chocolate Chips (I used Semi Sweet)
1 package of Candy Canes
First, I unwrapped all the candy canes and placed them in a freezer size plastic bag. I used the back of a plastic spoon to break apart the 'canes into small pieces.
Next, I emptied the bag of brown chocolate chips into a bowl and microwaved them at 30 second increments. At the end of each 30 seconds, I removed and stirred the bowl of chocolate. I ended up heating the semi sweet chocolate for 1 minute and 30 seconds.
I then placed the melted chocolate into the bottom of a 9x13 pan that was covered with parchment paper. That was then placed into the freezer for approximately 20 minutes.
I melted the white chocolate in the microwave at 30 seconds increments next. This chocolate only needed 1 minute and 20 seconds. Be careful not to overcook white chocolate.
After one last stir, I added half of the crushed candy cane. I let the mixture sit for about a minute. I then removed the semi sweet chocolate from the freezer and layered the white chocolate/candy cane mixture on top. Lastly, I added the remained of the crushed candy cane on top, pressing it down with the back of a spoon.
Once layered and smooth, I placed the pan back in the freezer for another 20 minutes to set. I removed the bark and let it sit for a few minutes before chopping into pieces with a knife.
I then placed them in individual boxes for early Christmas gifts!
