Ingredients

  • 2 packages (16 ounces)milk chocolate chips
  • 2 packages white chocolate chips
  • 3 Teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 1 box regular sized candy canes, crushed

Directions

Line baking pan with aluminum foil.

Melt the milk and white chocolate simultaneously in separate microwave-safe glass bowls, stirring every 30 seconds for 1 to 5 minutes. Spread the milk chocolate evenly over the bottom of the baking dish.

Drop spoonfuls of white chocolate on top of the milk chocolate. Use a wooden skewer or the tip of a knife to swirl the two chocolates together.

Sprinkle the crushed candy canes over the chocolate.

Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Break into pieces to serve.

Peppermint Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peppermint Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
