Christmas Baking, Day one – Chocolate Peppermint Bark
This is so easy to make, there is no need to spend money on pre-made Chocolate Peppermint bark at expensive specialty stores.
2 cups chocolate wafers (available in Canada at http://www.bulkbarn.ca/en-ca/index.html)
2 large candy canes, crushed
Few drops of peppermint flavoring
Temper chocolate by placing wafers in the top of a double boiler. Fill the bottom half of the boiler one-third to one-half full with water. Heat chocolate over medium heat, stirring, until melted and glossy:
Remove from heat, stir in crushed candy canes and peppermint flavoring.
Freeze until firm, 2 – 3 hours, in a pan lined with wax paper. Remove from freezer. Using wax paper, so the bark doesn’t melt onto your hands, break it apart into pieces.
For gift-giving, place in a pretty container, and wrap with seasonal cellophane paper.
