Chocolate Peppermint Bark

I first read about Peppermint Bark here.  I decided to give it a go but to add dark chocolate.  It turned out VERY yummy indeed!!!  We handed it out to our neighbors and brought it to our family Christmas gathering and it was received with rave reviews. 

The best thing was it was SUPER easy to make.

1 bag white chocolate melt candies
1 bag dark chocolate melt candies
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
4 candy canes, crushed

First lay out wax paper on a cookie sheet.
In a double boiler, microwave, or as I did in a metal mixing bowl over simmering hot water, melt the dark chocolate to a soupy consistancy.  Stir frequently as chocolate burns easily.
Once the dark chocolate is melted, pour onto wax paper and spread out in a thin layer.  Let this layer cool and harden  about 1 hour.
Now melt the white chocolate candies to a soupy consistacy.  Add the peppermint extract once the candies have completely melted.
Pour over the dark chocolate and spread out with a spatula.  Move quickly since the hot white chocolate will start to melt the dark chocolate.
Immediatly sprinkle the crushed candy canes on the white chocolate.
Let it cool completly till hard.
Break into pieces and eat!
