This is by far the easiest "candy" recipe a person can make! It's very forgiving, unlike many candy recipes. Be sure to remember to heat the chocolate slowly over lower heat to avoid chocolate bloom which occurs when the natural fats in the chocolate separate.
1 c. Crushed Peppermint Candies (Candy canes)
1 lb White Chocolate or "almond bark"
1 lb Dark Chocolate (Or 1 pkg Semisweet Chocolate Chips + 2 oz of Unsweetened Bakers Chocolate, Shaved + 1 T. Solid Shortening)
Melt the dark chocolate (or chocolate chips, bakers chocolate, shortening) in a double boiler. Melt the chocolate slowly or it will separate. Once melted and smooth, pour onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and set aside
Let it cool complete in the fridge for at least an hour. Remove from fridge and break into pieces like peanut brittle. For gift giving, wrap the pieces in cellophane and attach a pretty ribbon or place in mason jars and decorate the jar, etc.
