minty fresh: candy cane chocolate bark

What’s the easiest thing to make for the holidays? Candy cane chocolate bark! Two ingredients, chocolate and candy canes. What could be simpler? Not much.

* I also make this very successfully with mixed nuts. I just add a similar amount of salted mixed nuts instead of the candy canes to some dark or milk chocolate and follow the same directions. I used salted nuts because I love the sweet-salty dichotomy, but if you aren’t into that, just use plain nuts!

    I like it! My mom used to make little candies for us at Christmas time, in those tiny candy cups. She’d put a pecan half at the bottom, then pour melted white chocolate over it, and let it cool. I loved those things! Thanks for sharing.

    Crystal, that sounds so yummy! What a great childhood treat.

    Rachel, I love dark chocolate, but I’ve never made this with it. I’m sure it would be fantastic!

    Followed the recipe and then added a big swirl of dark chocolate on top. Yum! Thanks for the inspiration.
