Need a SWEET TREAT

to give your Valentine?

I’ve made this treat at Christmas time, and thought it would make a wonderful Valentine treat as well!! It’s SO simple to make and was a huge hit with my family and friends.

Makes a cute gift packaged many different ways. I put mine in celo bags, with ribbon tied around it. You could also put them in a cute tin, box or even an antique cup & saucer.

Peppermint Bark

Peppermint Bark

Ingredients

  • 1 pound of white chocolate, chopped
  • 1 pound of bittersweet chocolate, chopped

  1. Break up peppermint candy canes in a plastic bag, setting aside 1/4 of the pieces.

    Yum. I wonder if I could try this recipe with cinnamon candies and cinnamon flavoring? Or maybe leave out the flavoring – it may be a bit too much. Thoughts?

    tj I bet that would work – use cinnamon oil/flavoring instead of the peppermint! If you try it, let me know how it turns out!!
