Angel Peppermint Bark

If you like to make tasty treats for the holidays, then try this simple
Angel Peppermint Bark. The secret to this candy is the white chocolate.
Many similar recipes call for almond bark instead, but it produces candy
that is somewhat waxy because of the paraffin content of the almond
bark. Make this Angel Peppermint Bark with white chocolate and it will
turn out smooth, rich, and creamy – and not waxy at all.

ANGEL PEPPERMINT BARK

1 lb. white chocolate, chopped into small pieces

6 candy canes

Peppermint oil (optional)

Small to medium angel-shaped cookie cutter (or other holiday-shaped
cutter)

1. Line a small cookie sheet with wax paper and set aside.

2. In the top of a double boiler, melt white chocolate, stirring constantly.

3. Unwrap candy canes and place them in a large self-sealing plastic
storage bag. With a meat mallet, pound candy canes into small pieces.

4. Stir the pieces of candy cane into the melted chocolate. Remove from
heat, and pour the mixture onto the prepared cookie sheet; spread
evenly. Chill until slightly firm, then use an angel-shaped cookie cutter
and carefully cut the chocolate mixture into angel shapes. Chill the
angels until completely set – 25 to 30 minutes.

VARIATION: If you don’t want to make the candy in angel shapes or
other holiday shapes, you can simply chill the mixture on the cookie
sheet until firm, then break into pieces, and serve. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

NOTE: Instead of a double boiler, the white chocolate can be melted in a
microwave. Place the white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in the
microwave for 2 minutes (at medium power). Take the chocolate out and
stir. Place back in the microwave for 2 more minutes, then stir. Keep doing
this until all the white chocolate has melted.

For a stronger peppermint flavor, stir in 1/4 tsp. of peppermint oil into the melted white chocolate and candy cane mixture before pouring the
mixture onto the cookie sheet.
