To make Paula Deen's peppermint bark recipe, you will need candy canes that equal 1 cup when crushed and 2 cups of white chocolate. To prepare, place the candy in a plastic bag and hammer it until it has reduced to 1/4-inch pieces or smaller. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler and stir in the crushed candy. Pour the mixture onto a cookie sheet layered with parchment paper, refrigerate for 45 minutes or until it becomes firm, remove the bark from the cookie sheet, and break into pieces.
The peppermint bark with mini marshmallows recipe calls for 1 pound of white chocolate and 1/2 cup each of chopped peppermints and mini marshmallows. To make the recipe, line a baking sheet with foil, shiny side up, and smooth out any creases. Chop up the chocolate and place all but 1 cup in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate on high for 3-5 minutes in 30-second intervals and stir with a rubber spatula. Add the reserved chocolate and stir until it is melted and shiny. Pour the chocolate onto the baking sheet, spread into a 10-inch circle, press the peppermint and marshmallows into the chocolate, and allow the bark to cool completely at room temperature before breaking it into pieces.
