Ingredients

  • 12 large candy canes
  • 1 lb white chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 lb semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

Directions

  • 1
    Line 2 baking sheets with parchment and set aside.
  • 2
    Put the candy canes in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin or meat pounder to crush them into tiny pieces.
  • 3
    Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler (a heatproof pan set over a pan of simmering water), stirring continuously.
  • 4
    When the chocolate has completely melted, remove from heat and pour onto a lined baking sheet. With a spoon or offset spatula, spread the chocolate evenly.
  • 5
    Sprinkle the chocolate with half of the crushed candy canes. Refrigerate until firm; about 20-30 minutes.
  • 6
    Follow the same process with the semisweet chocolate.
  • 7
    After your bark has cooled and is firm, remove from the refrigerator and break into pieces.
  • 8
    Place in cellophane gift bags and tie with festive ribbons. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to one week.
