Holiday Peppermint Bark
1 package (12 ounces) Nestlé Toll House Premier White Morsels
24 hard peppermint candies, unwrapped
Line baking sheet with wax paper.
In medium, microwave-safe bowl, microwave morsels, uncovered, on medium-high (70 percent) power for 1 minute. Remove and stir. If pieces retain some of their original shape, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted.
Place peppermint candies in heavy-duty plastic bag, and crush with rolling pin.
Hold strainer over bowl of melted morsels and pour crushed candy into strainer. Shake to release all small candy pieces into melted morsels. Reserve larger pieces. Stir morsel-peppermint mixture to combine.
Spread mixture to desired thickness on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved candy pieces, and press lightly so they stick. Let stand for about 1 hour, or until firm.
Break into pieces. Store in airtight container at room temperature. Yields 1 pound.
