Every year for Christmas, my mom and dad go crazy in the kitchen baking delicious treats for all of our neighbors. Fudge, peanut butter cups, and poppyseed bread galore. (Side note: Best poppyseed bread I've ever eaten. One time my mom mailed it to me in the dorms. The girl across the hall ate half the loaf. I was pissed.) 

This year I decided I wanted to figure out what my Christmas treat would be. I love peppermint bark, but a pound of it at the store is about $20. I figured I could make it for way less, and I definitely did. 

12 oz. white chocolate
12 oz. milk chocolate
1 tbsp. mint extract
crushed up candy canes

How to:
1.) Melt milk chocolate in microwave. (About 90 seconds)
2.) Mix in mint extract.
3.) Pour onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
4.) Let sit for 10 minutes.
5.) Melt white chocolate in microwave. (About 90 seconds)
6.) Pour on top of milk chocolate.
7.) Crush up candy canes.
8.) Sprinkle on top of white chocolate.
9.) Set in fridge for 1 hour.
10.) Break into pieces. (This was a serious arm workout.)
11.) ENJOY!
