One of my favorite things about this holiday recipe is the fact that it is so dang simple!
All you need are two ingredients
Vanilla (or White Chocolate!) flavored Almond Bark
Peppermint Candies (or candy canes for the holiday spirit!)
Step 1: Smoosh the Almond Bark!!!
After you've busted up your almond bark into meltable portions, you'll want to start some water simmering in a sauce pan on the stove.
Make sure that you have a stainless steel bowl or other saucepan that can fit on top!
If you have a double boiler, all the more power to you, but I do not.
Once your bowl is hot, add in your almond bark and melt it just as you would chocolate. Stir occasionally!
Almond bark is kinda like chocolate in that it looks solid until you stir it, then it becomes a big dollop of meltyness!
Step 2: Smoosh the Candies!!!
You can use a rubber mallet, a hammer, or a good old fashioned rolling pin. What matters is that you get out all of your holiday stress by smashing those little sugarbombs to smithereens!
Once ALL of your almond bark is melted, and ALL of your candies are smooshed, remove the almond bark from heat and stir the candies into the mixture. Be very careful not to let any water get into there, or it will give your almond bark a grainy taste.
Step 3: Lay It Flat
Let cool at room temperature until completely solid (1-2 hours).
Step 4: Break It Up
These candies are great for sharing with family, neighbors, coworkers, and especially enjoying around the house. I like to keep little goodie-bags of it around to send home with unexpected visitors!
