Peppermint Bark for Holidays...

Do you make peppermint bark. This is one of my favorite holiday treats I LOVE. I use to buy this when I was working. This is one of the easiest holiday treat you can make and in well advance. You can store it up to 2 - 3 weeks. If you are well disciplined. 
On the other hand if you are not a peppermint person you might not like this as well.
I would not substitute quality on ingredients on this recipe. I am sure you prefer quality over quantity. If you are not a cookie kind of a person this is a fun way to get into the mood to make treats. 
You need good quality 2 slabs white chocolate
6 candy canes
1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract  
Take the plastic wrap off of the candy cane and place it in a brown bag. Using a end of a heavy knife smash the candy cane. In a double boiler melt the chocolate. Add half of your candy cane mix and the peppermint essence. Pour the mixture on to a tray line with parchment paper. Sprinkle the peppermint piece on top and let it cool completely. 
If you want the process to move fast place it in the refrigerator. 
Take them out break them into pieces wrap them in bags or store them in a container until you serve them. 
When you smash the candy cane take the big pieces to sprinkle and use the powder to mix in. This will make your bark pretty with little bits of candy cane.
