Star Peppermint Bark


         I know most people have a peppermint bark recipe in their archives. This is my go to
        one. Very simple and easy. I crave this bark. Sometimes I have to run to the mall and
        go to my favorite store ( Williams Sonoma ) and buy it. You can make it at home for
        a fraction of the cost and it's also a perfect gift. Enjoy.

                                                             Peppermint Bark

          6 ounces dark chocolate ( Godiva )
          6 ounces vanilla bean white chocolate ( Godiva )
          3 peppermint candy canes, crushed
          1 teaspoon vegetable oil

      1) Line bottoms and side of an 8 inch square pan with wax paper. Smooth the paper.
      This is so you can easily lift out in the end.
      ( I used molds but this is not necessary ) Silicone molds work best.
      2) Melt dark chocolate with oil in a heatproof bowl in microwave for about 60 to 70
      seconds. Mix until smooth and put into pan or molds. Refrigerate for about 30 min.
      3) Melt white chocolate the same way but for 60 seconds. Mix and pour on top of
      chilled dark chocolate. Sprinkle with candy canes and chill for until set. Break into
      pieces, if putting in an 8 inch square pan.
       ( Best if kept refrigerated )
