Pour directly over the melted chocolate. Sprinkle with the crushed candy canes. Place cookie sheet into freezer for 5 minutes or until hardened. Break candy apart. Place in a festive dish.

Note: If you don’t have a double boiler, get two different size pots. Fill the biggest one half way full with water. Set the little pot inside the bigger pot and you have a double boiler.

    I don’t cook!! If I made something like this I would end up eating it all. My niece makes a different type of bark 2 or 3 times a year. Sharing this with her and when they make it I will get a bag.
