This is one of the quickest and most delicious holiday candies you can make!
Chocolate-Peppermint Bark: Substitute chocolate-flavored candy coating for the vanilla candy coating.
Drizzled Peppermint Bark: Heat 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips or white baking chips and 1 teaspoon shortening until melted. Drizzle over Peppermint Bark before letting stand 1 hour.
Purchasing: Several brands of candy coating are available, and each melts a bit differently. The white color varies, and when melted, some are thinner than others. Make a note of the brand you prefer, and watch carefully while it melts so you can prevent burning.
Substitution: Chocolate-flavored candy coating used in place of vanilla is the way to go for die-hard chocoholics!
