National Candy Cane Day

Now while you may figure well that the day to celebrate the candy cane is in December and you would be right Candy Cane Day is today December 26, 2013

Candy Cane is traditionally red and white. However can be found in a great variety of colors and flavors.

One of my favorite treats to make with candy canes is candy cane bark oh how yummy In fact will be making a batch for one of my good friends tomorrow

Candy Cane Bark
Makes: Approx. 10x10 Square, Broken into small pieces

10 ounces White Chocolate, Chopped
9 Candy Canes, Crushed into small pieces

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside until needed. Place the chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave the chocolate for 30 seconds.  Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir.  Repeat the same microwave-and-stir process until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.  Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, let it slightly cool on the counter for about 5 minutes.  Once cooled, add the crushed candy canes into the white chocolate, reserving 2 tablespoons for topping the bark. Pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread is evenly until its ¼ inch thick.  Sprinkle the remaining crushed candy canes over the white chocolate mixture. Place the baking sheet into the refrigerator until its firm, about 10 minutes.  Once it has hardened, break it apart into medium-sized pieces. 

Serve and enjoy :)!
This bark is best kept in an airtight container or sealed plastic bag for up to two weeks.
