Peppermint Bark

Here are some different ways to make delicious peppermint bark for Christmas!
1 lb chocolate - either white chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, or both.  Or try almond bark. 
1/2 c crushed peppermint candies or crushed candy canes. 
Peppermint Flavoring (optional)

Place candy canes in a plastic bag and hammer into 1/4-inch chunks or smaller. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Combine candy cane chunks with chocolate (add peppermint flavoring at this point if desired.) Pour mixture onto a cookie sheet layered with parchment or waxed paper and place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes or until firm. Remove from cookie sheet and break into pieces (like peanut brittle.)
