Christmas Candy

During our stay in Boise for thanksgiving, my Dad made this really good candy, it was so simple i just knew i would be making some when we got home!


Here's what i used:
Almond bark in chocolate and vanilla flavor - I've never used these before but I've only ever heard good things about them so i decided to give it a try and they tasted amazing!
You'll also need a candy cane


Also grab some plasic bags

And a tray, i happened to have this silicon pan with 24 squares :)

First we put the chocolates in separate bags - but we did NOT seal them

Then we took the one with chocolate in it and microwaved it for 1 minute and 30 seconds or until melted ( we also checked it at 1min.10 seconds)


Next we cut a small corner of the bag


Then we drizzled a layer just enough to cover the bottom of each square


Tapping the tray on the counter sure helped it to smooth out


Place in the freezer for only 5 minutes


It's set just enough


Then we went ahead and microwaved the white chocolate for the same amount of time as we did the chocolate one and then drizzled just enough to cover the chocolate layer


Couple taps of the tray on the counter evens it out all nice an pretty!


Crush up some candy cane


Then sprinkle it on top and place back into the freezer for another 5 minutes


After that it was time to pop em out i loved this silicon pan not a single one broke!

What a wonderful sight! Now enjoy!!

We actually ended up eating 1 and then we gave the rest as Holiday treats to our neighbors!


Have Fun!

  7. Wow that candy looks absolutely amazing! I can't believe you were able to keep all the chocolate in the squares for the most part; if I was doing that, there would be chocolate EVERYWHERE!

  9. I really like how you shaped them, it is just like bark, but in perfectly sized pieces.

  10. so funny. I just posted my Holiday Peppermint Bark recipe which is very similar to this one. I love the idea of placing the chocolate in that pan with squares - makes it very easy to take the chocolate out when it's done. My recipe calls for a 9x9 pan to harden the chocolate. Once it's cold, it's very difficult to break apart. However, it is nice looking to have many jagged little pieces.
