The girls saw the spare boxes of candy canes in the pasta cupboard (that sounds like a good hiding place, doesn't it?) and insisted that we make bark again. Because they ate it all so quickly last time. Not a problem I said, and we got to smashing up the candy canes. They had a blast unwrapping and cracking the canes, then trying to crush them with the end of the wooden rolling pin. We did an okay job...
Then I melted the chocolate in a bain-marie for the best result. Well, I say bain-marie but really it was a ceramic bowl over a saucepan of boiling water. Sounds a lot less fancy like that though, doesn't it? Mini-2 stirred in the milk chocolate and candy canes
And Mini-1 did the white chocolate portion.
And we all gobbled up the resulting bark in a matter of days, yummy!!!
