    Loved how easy this recipe was. And it turns out beautiful too. I used Baker's White Chocolate and it turned out great. But my Peppermint Bark took about 12 hours to harden at room temperature. Make sure to leave yourself plenty of time.

    This stuff is wonderful, and easy too! I did it just a little differently. I saw a picture in a magazine that I wanted to replicate, so I started with a layer of milk chocolate on the bottom. Once the milk chocolate had hardened, I followed your recipe as is. I used the old-fashioned peppermint balls because I like the flavor and texture better. I'll probably make this again next year. Thanks!

    Sooooo good and a snap to make. These are going to become a regular on my cookie trays. Thanks for sharing.

    I was so excited to try this, as its a favorite of mine in the holiday season. I think I was a bit TOO excited in that I got my chocolate too hot! (I decided the chance of the chocolate company accidently throwing in one brown chip in my bag of white chips was slim and in fact I burnt the chips.) BUT I marched ahead, b/c by this time I had already taken a hammer to about 10 candy canes (in a baggie, with a towel wrapped around it, of course) After a sprinkling of peppermint on top, I don't think anyone was the wiser and rave reviews followed! Thank you for the recipe!
