2 lbs. white almond bark 1 1/2 c. crushed peppermint candy
Melt white almond bark on top of double boiler (never add water as it curdles the white almond bark). It takes about 10 minutes to melt thoroughly and will be very thick. Crush either peppermint candy canes or peppermint hard candy in blender until it is powder. Meanwhile, line a cookie sheet with tin foil. Mix hard crushed candy with melted white almond bark. Spread on lined cookie sheet. Let it dry and chop into pieces. NOTE: This candy is similar to Fannie May Peppermint Bark Candy

I made a couple of batches of Peppermint Bark for Christmas this year. This is a super simple recipe.
Crush 5 very small candy canes (2 1/2" size) by placing in a zip lock bag and crushing with a rolling pin. I don't crush until the powder stage, just until crunchy and still colorful. By using a ziplock bag, there is no mess to clean up afterward--you simply throw out the messy bag. Set crushed candy aside.
Put a long sheet of wax paper on a flat surface. Spray sheet of wax paper with cooking spray.
Microwave a (12 oz. approximate size) package of white bark squares in a large glass bowl in the microwave until melted. I start with 1 minute full power and then 15 second intervals until completely melted stirring each time.
When melted, remove from microwave. Quickly stir in crushed candy canes. Pour immediately onto wax paper. Spread quickly into a large oval shape to whatever thickness you like. Let is set for 1/2 hour or until firm and cool. Break into pieces like you would peanut brittle. Enjoy!
