Peppermint Bark

This is a very simple and easy thing to make. I made this up the other day and brought some to work for my coworkers to enjoy and left some at home for Randy and I. I will be making this again for our family Christmas we will be having on the 21st.

Peppermint Bark

8 ounces mini chocolate chips

30 hershey kisses candy cane flavor

parchment paper

Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler until smooth. Lay out a large sheet of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Spread out an even layer of the melted chocolate over the parchment (about 1/8"- 1/4" thick). Cool in the freezer for 20 minutes. While the chocolate is cooling, melt the hershey kisses in a double boiler.
Remove the cookie sheet from the freezer (the chocolate should be hardened) and spread a layer of the melted hershey kisses over the entire piece of chocolate. This should be about the same thickness as the chocolate.
Return the cookie sheet to the freezer and let cool for 30 minutes or until hard.
Break the bark into ragged pieces. Keep refrigerated in airtight container for freshness.

My oldest son Justin and Grumpy both love the peppermint bark (but without the chocolate chocolate).

I'm meeting up with our soldier's wife this weekend, what are you doing? Are you working?? You should head over our way if you want?? Grumpy's on call and we have to actually stay close to home. He intends to actually try to hunt if he doesn't get called out. Give me a shout!

P.S. He's not happy about being on call. He originally wasn't and they changed it. He's so disgusted he won't go to the Christmas party on Sat. night. At least that is what he "says".
