Peppermint Bark

Last year when I visited with friends in Northern California, they had the most delicious peppermint bark. It was rather pricey so I decided to make my own. I found a simple recipe here. I improvised a bit. I used candy canes because they were already marked down in price and I used 1 1/2 lbs of almond bark. I chose this recipe because I didn't have to buy the peppermint oil. By pulverizing some of the candy canes until they were powder and stirring the powder into the melted bark, there was no need for peppermint oil.  Here's a picture of mine cooling.

Have a blessed holiday. Hugs to all of my wonderful family and friends.
