Peppermint bark Recipe

So I had a bunch of emails about the recipe for the here it it is! So easy and ohhhhh so good!!

1 pkg. candy canes, unwrapped and crushed (place in thick ziploc and bang with a rolling pin or hammer)
4+ cups white chocolate (look for one that has cocoa butter in it, use the white chocolate wafers for candy making that you find at craft stores only as a last resort)
1/2-1 t. peppermint extract (you can use mint, but peppermint is better)
1 bag milk chocolate chips (you can use semisweet, but I prefer milk)

Melt white chocolate in a double boiler or in a metal bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Melting the chocolate won't take long. Take off the heat before chocolate is entirely melted and stir until smooth. Add peppermint to taste. Spread in ungreased 12x7 jelly roll pan. Place in freezer for 5 minutes. Sprinkle top with milk chocolate chips. Completely cover the white chocolate if you want layers of chocolate, or sprinkle in rows if you want a more marbled look. Place in warm (350) oven until milk chocolate is nearly melted (2-5 minutes). Spread with rubber spatula to smooth or marble. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes. Place in freezer until hard (12+ minutes). Break into pieces and store in airtight container....

that's it.....make lots cause it goes fast!!!
