Easy DIY Christmas Peppermint Bark

As its Christmas Eve eve I thought I'd show you a super easy last minute sweet treat idea for your loved ones. These are really delicious and will be gone within minutes! Here's what you will need...

200g White chocolate
200g Milk chocolate
6 Peppermint candy canes (or which ever ones you prefer)
Festive sprinkles
Clear cellophane self-seal bags
Greaseproof paper

Makes approx 8 bags
Time: 1 hour

Firstly break the milk chocolate into small pieces and add to a heatproof bowl. Add a little boiling water to a saucepan and heat until simmering. Suspend the bowl over the simmering water, but don't allow the base of the bowl to touch the water. Heat the chocolate, stirring regularly, until almost completely melted, then remove from the heat; the residual heat of the bowl will melt any remaining lumps so it doesn't burn. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.

Next place the greaseproof paper onto a flat baking sheet and carefully pour the melted milk chocolate onto the baking sheet. Using a spatula spread the chocolate evenly over the baking sheet and pop into the fridge to set for about 15-20 minutes.

Repeat the first process to melt the white chocolate. Once the milk chocolate has hardened remove from the fridge. Pour the white chocolate on top on the milk chocolate and smooth evenly to cover the bottom.

Next place the candy canes in a food bag and cover with a tea towel. Crush the candy canes with a rolling pin until they're the size you want them. Sprinkle the candy canes pieces and the festive sprinkles over the chocolate. Place back in the fridge to set for a further 15-20 minutes.

Once its set remove from the fridge and break up into pieces. Don't worry if they're not all perfect as we don't want them to be all the same size! Divide 3-4 pieces into the cellophane bags and seal. I added twine onto each one to make it more special. Enjoy!
