Peppermint Bark

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Servings: 10


  • 2 lbs white chocolate
  • optional (Paula says use about 2 teaspoons, to your taste) peppermint extract
  • crushed to yield 1 cup candy canes


Place candy canes in a plastic bag and hammer into 1/4-inch chunks or smaller.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.

Combine candy cane chunks with chocolate (add peppermint flavoring at this point if desired.). Pour mixture onto a cookie sheet layered with parchment or waxed paper and place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes or until firm.

Makes 2 pounds. Makes a great gift!
