I made this recipe for the first time! I used 1 package (12-oz.) chocolate truffle candy disks and 1 package of green candy disks and I used my double boiler over boiling water to melt both packages! I used a baking sheet with ledges which measured about 13x9x2" in width and lined the sheet with heavy-duty foil. I did use crushed candy canes (about 12 standard sized) which I'd pulsed in my food processor. I spread the melted chocolate disks over the foil (as evenly as I could) so that it covered the foil, then I melted the green disks and added the peppermint extract after the disks were melted. I DID have to watch how I spread the green layer-I ended up with a swirled bark-chocolate, green and marbled! I sprinkled top with the crushed candy canes (about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of crushed candy canes) and I chilled MORE than 10 minutes-I'd say at least 20 to 30 minutes to really make sure the bark was firm! It was very attractive and when I broke it into pieces, I got a 3-layered bark! I sampled some and found it to be very tasty! This is a really great recipe to use for the Christmas holidays OR for other special occasions! Thank you for contributing this recipe to Taste of Home! delowenstein

I only gave this 3 stars because with peppermint extract, the green candy coating seized up on me. Luckily, I had purchased 2 bags, so was able to redo it with peppermint oil. That worked beautifully.

This is one of my annual "go to" recipes! I make it with the white chocolate chips and green candy melts...as well as semi-sweet chocolate chips and red candy melts! No matter where I bring it, I always bring home an empty container. Enjoy!

Very easy to make! I used Peppermint Starlight Mints instead of Candy Canes and put them in the food process on pulse to crush them. This is a new Holiday must have recipe for sure :)

This recipe is so easy and quick. You can change up the extracts to make other flavors. (ex: cherry extract, cran raisins, pecans) I made up a lot of this last Christmas and every crumb was gone! Excellent recipe! Thanks Hillary!!

Everyone loves this! We will be making it again before Christmas. It literally takes about 15 minutes to make. We used almond bark instead of the green candy discs, just tinted it green. Worked beautifully.

I was really excited to try this with my daughter, but we had some issues. When we added the peppermint extract, all of a sudden our creamy went to one big thick chunk. I added 5 T of melted butter and got it a little creamier. Then I added the melted coating to try to help it, not daring to add any more peppermint extract, and got it to where we could at least spread it on the pan (all one layer). At least my daughter had fun crushing the candy canes and sprinkling them on!
