1½ cups white chocolate chips, with cocoa butter
4 teaspoons peppermint extract OR peppermint schnapps (2 teaspoons per chocolate)
½ cup crush peppermint candy
Place waxed paper in a 13x9 baking dish. Leave enough waxed paper along edges to lift peppermint bark from baking dish later.
Melt milk chocolate in a medium glass bowl for about 1 minute. Remove from microwave and stir until smooth. Add 2 teaspoons peppermint extract to milk chocolate and stir until well-combined. Pour chocolate into a 13x9 baking dish and place in the freezer until hardened, approximately 3 minutes.
Repeat the same process with the white chocolate chips. Remove baking dish from freezer and spread white chocolate over semi-sweet chocolate. Sprinkle crushed peppermint candies over white chocolate and return to the freezer until firm, approximately 3 minutes.
Remove from freezer and pull waxed paper from baking dish. Break peppermint bark into pieces. Place on a dish, in a tin, or in cellophane bags for gift giving.
