Delicious Double Chocolate Candy Cane Bark

Today I decided to get back to my cooking mode.  However, I am not going to exhaust myself today.  A little kitchen pottering will do. 

Mark informed me this week that turkeys were on sale at the grocery store, so of course we picked one up and I figured I would make “proper” Sunday dinner for us this Sunday. (No freezer space to store it either!) And of course, I wanted to make my first brined turkey, but I have absolutely nothing big enough to do my brinning process in.  Regular turkey it is! It is so frustrating being a foodie without certain tools some days.  My hand mixer, which I bought for 9 dollars, is on the fritz, deciding it doesn’t like to mix pound cake batter.  Oh, thats life, isn’t it?  But I guess I shouldn’t complain about a 9 dollar hand mixer, should I?

Anyway!  Now onto the best part, here is my recipe for double chocolate candy cane bark.

For delicious double chocolate candy cane bark, you will need:
1 package semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (300g)
same amount of white chocolate
12-13 small or a few large candy canes, bashed into small pieces

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
On super low heat, melt the dark chocolate chips.
Once chocolate is melted and smooth, spread an even coat over the parchment paper.
Let cool 30 minutes in the fridge.
Once it Is time to remove the dark stuff from the fridge, start melting the white chocolate.
Spread the creamy, white chocolate over the dark chocolate and sprinkle with your candy cane bits.
Refrigerate for 1 hour or so.
Break into bark like chunks.
You can store this in baggies and store in the fridge until you need it, or put into tins to snack on.

I hope you all like this yummy treat!  It makes great gifts too! 

Here are some pictures of my turkey supper as well:

I hope everyone had a delicious supper too!

  Until next time,
