Easy Holiday Peppermint Candy

A candy so easy to make that is nice for parties! I made it thicker than usual. Looked for the most “natural” hard peppermint candies I could find – got some at Trader Joe’s.

(9 x 13 pan)

  • 12 oz white chocolate chips
  • 12 oz dark or milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/2 cup crushed hard peppermint candy

Line a 9 x 13 pan with aluminum foil, with foil hanging over sides. Grease the foil.

Melt the chocolate chips. (I used the oven – 250 degrees for 5 minutes) Spread into bottom of pan. Cool.

Melt white chocolate; stir in extract. Cool just a little and spread onto first layer. Immediately sprinkle with crushed candies. Chill. Lift out of pan and cut into squares.
