{Peppermint Bark & A Virtual Cookie Swap}

I just love a good cookie swap, don’t you?!  To me, the best part is getting to sample all the different varieties of cookies my friends can create.  A few of my blogging friends and I were talking and decided it would be fun to host a virtual swap with each other {and of course all of YOU} this holiday season.  I’m going to start with my recipe for Peppermint Bark and after that you’ll find several other mouth watering recipes for other cookies and treats.  {If only we could actually taste all of these delicious creations as we read about them!}

To make {Peppermint Bark}, you’ll need:

1 bag of white chocolate morsels

1 cup crushed candy canes

parchment or wax paper

Begin by crushing your candy canes into tiny pieces.  Nothing fancy here.  I simply put a handful of candy canes into a quart size bag, sealed it shut, and hit the candy canes with my rolling pin.

Soon I had plenty of crushed candy cane bits to use in my peppermint bark.

Melt the entire bag of white chocolate morsels according to package directions.  You could also use white candy melts.  Once the chocolate is melted, stir in one cup of the crushed candy canes, spread the mixture on top of wax paper on a flat surface such as a cookie sheet or pie pan.  You need something small enough so that it will fit in the refrigerator.

After about an hour, your peppermint bark should have hardened enough to break it into different sized pieces to share with friends and family {or keep all to yourself…I won’t judge}.

I like to use wax paper and baker’s twine to package mine for small Christmas gifts this time of year!

Wasn’t that easy?!

    That did look easy and delicious. I love your presentation – so simple but it really makes it pop as a gift. I have never seen that fancy baker’s twine. I’ll be keeping my eyes open on my next grocery store trip.
