CANDY MAKING RECIPES forum: Super Easy Peppermint Almond Bark
Views: 5, Replies: 0 » Jump to the end
|1 package "Vanilla" (white) Almond Bark
1 package (at least 12 full sized or 24 miniature) candy canes in peppermint flavoring
1 mini muffin tin (see Cashew Bark for link)
mini muffin wrappers (see Cashew Bark for link)
1 mini ladel (see Cashew Bark for link)
Medium sized Pyrex glass bowl
READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO MELT THE ALMOND BARK!! DO NOT OVER COOK IN THE MICROWAVE! IT'LL STINK TO HIGH HELL!!!!!!!
Get 2 sheets wax paper and a wooden cutting board. Place the candy canes between the wax paper and beat the snot out of it (it's amazing that candy canes have snot) with a meat tenderizer. You should have mis-matched pieces, some tiny slivers, some bigger chunks. Make sure that 90% of it is smaller than 1/2" in length or width.
Melt the almond bark in the glass bowl, stirring w/the wooden spoon. Once 100% melted, pour the mashed up candy canes into the melted almond bark & stir until completely mixed. Mixture will take on a slightly pinkish tinge. Using the mini ladel, spoon into the wrappers that are set into the mini muffin tin, placing a larger piece of peppermint on top for decoration. I also used colored sugar crystals (some red, some green) for decor, placing this on top while still warm so it sets in. Let cool 100%. Easiest way to pop these out of the tin is to drop kinda heavily onto the counter.. that should loosen them all up in case you dribble onto the tin.
Never be afraid of a scar. It just means that you were stronger than something that tried to hurt you.
