I made this for the Sweet and Easy Valentine's Swap (with a little extra for my darling Pinkleo), and since I got asked for the recipe by both recipients, I thought I'd post it here.

1 lb package White Chocolate Bark
1 cup Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips (about half the package)
Red Sugar Sprinkles

Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. 

If your white chocolate bark comes in large chunks chop it into smaller pieces, about the size of chocolate chips.  Place the first half of it into a microwave safe dish.  In another dish place the half of the Peppermint Crunch Chips.

Microwave on high for 30 seconds.  Stir both.  Microwave another 30 seconds, and stir again.  Continue to microwave the chocolate in 10-15 second bursts, stirring each time until both are melted and smooth.  DO NOT OVERHEAT!

Pour the white chocolate onto the foil covered pan, and use a thin spatula to spread it out, to about 1/8.  You do not have to be very careful, as you are now going to drizzle on the Peppermint candy.  Drizzle on in stripes, at a ratio of about 1:2 peppermint to white chocolate.  Work quickly, as the candy will start to set. 

Next, take a toothpick and swirl the two candies together.  I swirled some hearts into the design.  Finally, sprinkle on some of the red sugar sprinkles.  Let it cool and harden.  Then break into bite sized chunks and pack in a pretty box.

Note: Sadly, I don't have a picture of it all broken/packed up.  I was hoping to steal whatever pics my swap partner took, but she has not posted any yet.  I'll try to make another batch soon and update with a finished picture. Smiley

Om nom. That looks tasty already. Can't wait to see a finished pic!

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.
