Instructions

  1. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, set aside.

White Chocolate

  2. Stir peppermint through milk chocolate and remove from heat.

Assemble

  1. Pour half of the melted white chocolate into lined pan.
  2. Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes or until it just starts to firm up, soft to the touch, not runny and not completely hardened.
  3. Remove white chocolate from refrigerator.
  4. Pour all of the melted milk chocolate over the white chocolate.
  5. Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes or until milk chocolate just starts to firm up, soft to the touch, not runny and not completely hardened.
  6. Remove from refrigerator and pour over remaining white chocolate.
  7. Sprinkle over crushed candy canes, if desired.
  8. Return to refrigerator and completely set, approx. 1-2 hours.
  9. Once completely set, remove bark from pan and slice into long bars or smaller squares.
