White Christmas Candy
Another easy candy recipe we've made for years is the following:
WHITE CHRISTMAS CANDY
1 package white chocolate confectionery coating (almond bark)
6 to 8 regular candy canes
Melt the confectionery coating in the microwave according to package directions. Meanwhile, place the candy canes in a medium ziplock bag and seal the bag. Use a hammer or a wooden meat mallet to crush the candy canes into small pieces.
When the coating is melted and smooth, add the crushed candy canes and stir to combine well. Pour the mixture out onto a foil- or wax-paper-lined baking sheet. Spread the mixture out to about 1/4-inch thickness (maybe a little more) with a spatula.
Allow the mixture to harden (in the fridge is the quickest way); then remove foil or wax paper and break candy into bite-size pieces. Store in an airtight tin.
This is a very easy recipe that makes a lot of delicious candy. The recipe can easily be doubled.
