I didn't care for the oil and the lack of peppermint taste. I made them a second time and omitted the oil and added 1 tsp peppermint extract and it was good.

I've made peppermint bark for years but I don't add butter or oil. Just melt white chocolate and stir in crushed peppermint and a couple drops of peppermint oil, not flavor. Maybr thr problem with the person who had the mixture get thick and not spreadable is if you get even a tiny bit of water in the chocolate it will get thick and unspreadable.Hope this helps

I have made something similar to this in the past, but tried this recipe for this year. After melting the candy coating, I stirred in the oil and remaining butter. That candy coating turned so thick, texture was weird. Even tried to reheat for a couple of seconds..I could NOT begin to spread it out or use it at all. hmm! Any suggestions? Why use the canola oil and butter? Other recipes i had seen was to melt the candy coating and then add the crushed peppermint, pour out to desired thickness. Love to try new recipes..but I goofed somehow on this one! any suggestions..would love to hear!

Re: the comment about all candy having to go in fridge and asking for solutions: I've known some candy makers who place their candy in an unheated enclosed porch, attic, garage, or even in a car to solidify.

This is such an easy and delicious recipe to make. Gave them out at Christmas in small candy bags and they wanted more when those were gone.

White candy coating is the same as Almond bark, find it in the baking section with the chocolate chips. You can also use the white candy melts you find in the bulk section of your grocery store or in the craft section with the Wilton products.

Lovd the candy.....but why does all this candy have to go into the fridge all the time. Has anyone tried to leave it out on the table? Is there something we can add to make it table top friendly?
