25 mini candy canes
4 c. chocolate chips
¼ tsp. peppermint extract

Place the mini candy canes in a sealed bag and use a rolling pin to crush them into small chunks. Transfer to a medium bowl.
Pour the chocolate chips into a separate medium glass bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir. Continue heating the chocolate in 20-second intervals, stirring each time, until chocolate is smooth.
Stir the peppermint extract into the melted chocolate chips. Pour onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and spread evenly with a spatula. Freeze for 5 minutes.
Melt the white chocolate chips in the same way as the first batch of chocolate chips.
Remove the pan from the freezer and pour the melted white chocolate over the chocolate, spreading evenly with a spatula.
Sprinkle the crushed mini candy canes over the white chocolate.
Freeze for at least 1 hour.
Remove the bark from the freezer and break into pieces.
