-30 crushed peppermint hard candies, divided 1 1/2 pounds milk chocolate candy, coarsely chopped
-Hershey’s Milk Chocolate with Almonds Snack Size Bars 2 for $7.00 - expires in 4 days
-1 1/2 pounds white chocolate, chopped
-1 teaspoon oil-based peppermint flavoring, or to taste
1 h 40 m
1. Spread 1/3 of the peppermint candy over a 9x13-inch baking pan lined with wax paper.
2. Melt the milk chocolate in the top of a double boiler over just-barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, just until melted. Pour the melted chocolate over peppermint candy in the prepared pan. Sprinkle another 1/3 of the candy on top of the milk chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens, about 30 minutes.
3. Melt the white chocolate in the top of a double boiler over just-barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Stir in the oil-based peppermint flavoring. Pour the white chocolate over the milk chocolate, then spread the remaining 1/3 peppermint candy on top.
3. Refrigerate until the white chocolate hardens, about 30 minutes. Cut or break into pieces to serve.
