    Peppermint Bark/Brittle

    INGREDIENTS:
    2 pounds white chocolate
    30 small peppermint candy canes

    DIRECTIONS:
    1. Line a large jellyroll pan with heavy-duty foil.
    2. Place white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in microwave on medium setting for 5 to 6 minutes. Stir occasionally, until chocolate is melted and smooth.
    3. Place candy canes in a plastic bag, or between two pieces of waxed paper. Using a mallet or rolling pin, break the candy canes into chunks. Stir peppermint into melted white chocolate. Spread evenly in pan, and chill until set, about 1 hour. Break into pieces by slamming pan on counter.
    Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen. Merry Christmas from my home to yours.

    :gingerbread:

    I am making some of this maybe with 1# of white chocolate and 15 candy canes though I am the only one who likes it and I am diabetic so I have to be careful.


    DO you have a pecan pie recipe?

    I have never tried to make my own peppermint bark, but I do love it! Maybe this year I'll try my hand at it. :D

    Here ya go!
    "This is the most amazing pecan pie. Once you start eating it you can't stop."
    INGREDIENTS:
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons white sugar
    1/2 cup butter, chilled
    4 tablespoons ice water
    3 eggs, beaten
    3/4 cup light corn syrup 2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
    3/4 cup light brown sugar
    3 tablespoons butter, melted
    1 pinch salt
    1/2 cup pecans, finely crushed
    1 cup pecans, quartered
    1 cup pecan halves

    DIRECTIONS:
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    2. To Make Crust: In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt and white sugar. Cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually sprinkle the water over the dry mixture, stirring until dough comes together enough to form a ball.
    3. On a floured surface flatten dough ball with rolling pin. Roll out into a circle that is one inch larger than pie dish. Place pie shell into dish and refrigerate until pie filling is complete.
    4. To Make Pie Filling: In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, light and dark corn syrups, brown sugar, butter, salt and finely crushed pecans. Spread quartered pecans over bottom of refrigerated pie crust. Pour syrup mixture over top of pecans, then arrange pecan halves on top of pie.
    5. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for one hour or until firm; let cool for one hour before serving.
    Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen. Merry Christmas from my home to yours.
