Peppermint Bark Candy

This is a family favorite at our house.  It's creamy and minty and tastes like Christmas.  We make it every year for my son's class and all of the kids love it.  It is so simple to make too! 

1 Package Candy Canes
1 Package Almond Bark

Remove the candy canes from the wrappers and crush.  We use a rubber mallet (this is my son's favorite part).  Melt the almond bark in the microwave according to the directions on the package.  Usually I put it in for a minute and take it out and stir it up, then put it in for a minute more.  Stir the melted candy and pour in the crushed peppermint.  Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and spread the mixture onto it in an even layer.  Put in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.  Then, you just break it into pieces.

What is your family's favorite Christmas treat?  Hope you'll come back tomorrow for the Holiday Hookup and share all of your recipes, crafts, decorating, and gift ideas!  Can you believe there is less than two weeks until Christmas?  So much to do!
