Peppermint Bark

This is one of the Christmas candies that Mom used to make. As a child I loved to smash up the peppermints, well as an adult I like to still.

This is super easy to make and little hands can help!

1 pound almond bark (it's always available in the South, up North it's more of a holiday thing)
1/2 bag peppermint candies

In 1 bowl unwrap the peppermints and place in a thick freezer bag. This is the fun part! Smash, Bang, Beat the heck out of them! Very fun!
Break up the almond bark and place in a microwave safe bowl, slowly melt stirring as you go. Add in the peppermints, stir.
Lay out a large piece of parchment paper on the counter or table, and spread the mixture. Let cool, this will happen pretty fast. To make it festive and pretty you can melt some chocolate chips and drizzle over, let harden. Break into bite sized pieces.
Store in Tupperware.

Makes: Lots of candy!
From: Mom & Poff's Kitchen
*note the's hard to get a picture of this goes that fast!
