peppermint bark

i feel like the holidays are finally hitting me. i love making holiday treats and peppermint bark just felt so right! it's so easy and so good!

you'll need 12 ounces of dark chocolate, 1 half teaspoon of peppermint extract, and 6 chopped candy canes. first melt the chocolate in a double boiler and add your peppermint extract. next pour the chocolate onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. then add the chopped candy. press the candy canes in a little and place in the refrigerator to cool and harden. break the candy into pieces and eat!!!
