    EmJoMay's Note:

    I found this on the box of McCormick's Pure Peppermint Extract and decided to try it. I'm usually not a fan of Peppermint Bark because the balance of chocolate and peppermint always seems uneven. That being said, this recipe has a great balance to it and even looks great once finished. My boyfriend loved it so much he pleaded with me not to serve it at our dinner party so he could save it all for himself! ;) My only concern with this recipe is that the bark can get stuck if there are too many wrinkles in the foil. I wonder if this could be fixed with wax paper? Let me know what works for you!

      Easy and fast. Didn't use the food coloring, would try peppermint oil instead of extract next time as the chocolate seized up a bit when I put in the extract. Covered with crushed candy canes to hide the lumpiness. I doubt anyone will know it was lumpy but me. I hope not, as I really don't want to throw away all of that white chocolate.

      very good, I added crushed candy canes to the recipe along with the extract. Placed wax paper on cookie sheet and poured mixture onto it to cool, no problem peeling off!
