Holiday Peppermint Bark

Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


2 cups (12 oz) Nestle Toll House Premier White Morsels
24 hard peppermint candies, unwrapped (I used Branch's Starbrights)

Line a baking sheet with wax paper.

Microwave morsels in an uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on Medium-High Power (70%) for 1 minute. Stir. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10 to 15 second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.

Place peppermint candies in a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag. Crush candies using a rolling pin or other heavy object (meat tenderizers also work well). While holding strainer over melting morsels, pour crushed candy into strainer. Shake to release all small candy pieces; reserve larger candy pieces. Stir morsel-peppermint mixture.

Spread mixture to desired thickness on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved candy pieces, press in lightly. Let stand for about 1 hour or until firm. Break into pieces. Store in airtight container at room temperature. Makes about 1 pound of candy.

Alternative: Allow candy to set for 30 minutes. Melt approx. 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate morsels and drizzle over candy. Allow to set for another 30 minutes (or place in refrigerator to decrease time).
