Peppermint Bark from Lauren:
1 package (7.5 oz.) peppermint candies/candy canes
1 pound white chocolate (the better the quality, the better it tastes!)
2 cups rice krispies cereal
1/2 cup melted chocolate chips
Crush candies with a rolling pin after placing them in double zip-loc bags and wrapping in a dish towel. Sift off the powder from the crushed candies saving out the crushed candy chunks. Melt the white chocolate/bark in a double boiler (or in a metal bowl) over simmering water. Stir in the rice krispies cereal. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray and line with wax paper. Pour and spread the melted bark into baking sheet (with a rim) 1/4 inch. Sprinkle crushed peppermint on top of the bark and press it into the soft bark using a sheet of wax paper . Cool slightly. Drizzle melted chocolate over the top. Cool completely. Break into pieces.
