Here is the most simple, easy, delicious peppermint bark you could ever hope to make.
2 bags of semisweet chocolate chips
1 pack of candy canes or peppermint candies
Crush peppermint (this is the most difficult step). I tried using a rolling pin and a freezer bag, and it wasn't super successful. Then I tried the food processor, which worked a little better (although super loud–Penny was not a fan of this step!). You might also try smashing it with a hammer.
Once cooled, break into small pieces.
Makes a great gift for a hostess, neighbor, teacher, or coworker!
