1: Cover cookie sheet with waxed paper. Place candy coating in 8-cup microwavable measure or 2-quart microwavable casserole. Microwave uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until almost melted. Stir until smooth.

2: Place peppermint candies in heavy plastic bag and crush with rolling pin or bottom of small heavy saucepan. Pour crushed candies into wire strainer. Shake strainer over melted coating until all of the tiniest candy pieces fall into the coating. Reserve the larger candy pieces. Stir coating to mix evenly.

3: Spread coating evenly on cookie sheet. Sprinkle evenly with remaining candy pieces. Let stand about 1 hour or until cool and hardened. Break into pieces.

Darlene’s Tips: Use Confetti morsels for extra flecks of color! You can add a drop of peppermint extract if you want extra peppermint flavor.  You can make chocolate peppermint bark the same way using chocolate morsels.  Don’t get caught up in exact measurements! You are basically melting your morsels or bark and mixing it with candy. Make as much or as little as you want! You can experiment with other hard candies too. I think cinnamon would be awesome!
