Anyway...these recipes aren't anything new or spectacular...but they're easy enough and fun to take to a party. Or serve at a party. Or make and eat by yourself.
White Chocolate Peppermint Bark
|Here's the finished product. At the end I will show you how I dressed it up to give away.|
12 - 15 candy canes
Unwrap the candy canes and place them a zip-top bag. Take your husband's hammer....or use what I used...a meat tenderizer....and smash the daylights out the candy canes. I did this on concrete because bits of the candy canes will make little holes in the bag and I didn't want candy cane dust in my kitchen and I don't have concrete in my kitchen. Make sure you place a clean towel under the plastic bag.
|Crushed candy canes!|
|Yes...I know this stuff isn't technically chocolate. Let's move on, shall we?|
Add the crushed candy canes to the chocolate and stir it all up! You can reserve a bit to sprinkle of top when you spread it out to cool. Makes it purdy.
Spread the mixture on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and let it harden.
|Spread it all out.....try not to let it get too thick. You want to be able to break it easily.|
Sprinkle some of the reserved crushed candy canes for sprinkling.
|Start cooking the apples until ...|
|...it starts darkens and thickens.|
|Jar it up!!!|
|This is how many jars I got out of the batch I made. |
|This is how I dolled up the jars to give away. Cute, yes?|
