You know I am all about super simple. And I love to make things and give things.
Hello there perfect Christmas chocolate!
This is an excellent (and inexpensive) gift to make for teachers, co-workers, and family. Put it in a treat bag and it makes a perfect classroom holiday party goody bag. Or, just make it and place it in your favorite glass dome cake plate and it is beautiful to keep on the counter for everyone to enjoy a little here and there.

All you need is peppermint or candy canes and white chocolate morsels.
Cover a cookie sheet in parchment paper.
Crush your candy canes in a zip lock bag (I used the back of a ladle).
Melt your chocolate.
I used a double boiler, but you can also do it in the microwave, just make sure you do not heat it at a temperature too high because it will make your chocolate all funk-a-do.
Once the chocolate is completely melted pour it onto the parchment paper covered cookie sheet and spread it out evenly.
Spread it good and thin….
While hot, sprinkle chocolate with crushed peppermint.

Walk away and let it cool 100% (for at least an hour).
Once cool, separate the hardened candy from the parchment paper and break it into many, smaller, imperfect pieces.
To make the perfect gift, use tissue paper and….
… a cute little box or tin and you are good to go!
