This is one of our staples now. In addition to putting the peppermint on top at the end, I also sprinkle very lightly some green sugar - it makes it more festive :
Holiday Peppermint Bark
1 (12 ounce) packageNESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels
24hard peppermint candies
LINE baking sheet with waxed paper.
MICROWAVE morsels in medium, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70 percent) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth.
PLACE peppermint candies in heavy-duty plastic bag. Crush candies using rolling pin or other heavy object. While holding strainer over melted morsels, pour crushed candy into strainer. Shake to release all small candy pieces; reserve larger candy pieces. Stir morsel-peppermint mixture.
SPREAD mixture to desired thickness on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved candy pieces; press in lightly. Let stand for about 1 hour or until firm. Break into pieces. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
Every Christmas I make caramel. It's easier than you think. I also make sugar cookies, snowball cookies, shortbread, and apple butter. This year I am adding peanut brittle and pralined pecans. I highly recommend pinterest and melskitchencafe. Awesome resources.
