CANDY CANE BARK

If you watched SEA AND BE SCENE TV's 2014 Celebrating the SEAson Special then you'll know....

I LOVE CANDY CANES!!!

No surprise then, that this easy to make recipe for Candy Cane Bark has been a holiday favourite around our house for a long, long time! sb

CANDY CANE BARK

MARTHA STEWART LIVING dec98jan99 coverIt wasn't until I was put in charge of my parents annual Christmas soiree in Orillia, Ontario that I realized it made the perfect party take-away.

A few large pieces in a festive cello bag make for a tasty "thanks for coming" treat or the ideal sweet for those surprise pop-in people throughout the holidays.

Huge credit to Martha Stewart - who provided that oh so delightful Peppermint Bark recipe way back in the Dec. 1998/Jan.1999 issue of LIVING.

ingredients

2 pounds white chocolate, chopped into small pieces to make melting easier

12 large peppermint candy canes

1/2 teaspoon peppermint oil

method

Line a baking sheet with parchment, and set aside.

In the top of a double boiler, melt white chocolate, stirring constantly.

Chill until firm, 25 to 30 minutes.

Break into pieces, and serve.

Have some festive cello bags & ties on hand as this makes a great and tasty take-away for all your holiday guests and sweet festive treat for all!

If you watched our 2017 Holiday Segments you would have seen the sweet stars - made following this recipe and then filling a silpat tray of miniature stars (pack fill molds and scrape top of tray to ensure a clean star with no bits hanging over) Chill for at least 30 minutes in - then pop out and enjoy!!!
