For the sake of Christmas...
...I crawled my sick self out of bed and donned a face mask (not joking here) to create "sick-free" treats and ship them out in time for Christmas. Yes, I am insane, but I love my friends.
Today's treats- Chocolate Peppermint Bark.
Most recipes say to use whole chocolate bars and break them down,
but I believe using high quality chocolate chips works just as well.
You will need a bag of white chips, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Pour each bag into separate microwavable bowls and microwave until
melted stirring halfway. Place a piece of wax paper down on a baking
sheet and spread melted semi-sweet chocolate until smooth (about 1/2 inch)
Crush (with a hammer or other pounding device) 20 or so peppermint
candies or candy canes and sprinkle over the semi-sweet layer. Add a layer
off white chocolate, spread until even. Sprinkle remaining peppermint
pieces on top. Stick in the fridge for a half hour and then break into
