Girlfriends Cookie Exchange

This weekend, all us girlfriends are getting together and baking cookies. Massive amounts of cookies/holiday treats. Since we won't have our monthly girl's night we are having a girl's day to prepare for the holiday season and when we leave, we will be leaving with our assortments of cookies. There are 6 of us, so we will leave with 6 dozen cookies :) And we will have fun baking them together, of course some type of drink will be involved!
Here is my addition to the party.


Peppermint Bark
6 ounces (170 grams) semi sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
6 ounces (170 grams) white chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/3 - 1/2 cup (50 - 80 grams) crushed candy canes

Line the bottom and sides of an 8 inch (20 cm) square baking pan with aluminum foil, smoothing out any wrinkles.
Melt the semi sweet chocolate and 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Immediately pour the melted chocolate into the prepared pan and tilt the pan so the chocolate makes an even layer. Place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, or until the chocolate has set.
Then, melt the white chocolate and remaining 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Immediately pour the melted white chocolate over the dark chocolate and tilt the pan so the chocolate is in an even layer. Sprinkle the crushed candy canes evenly over the white chocolate. Place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, or until the chocolate has set.
Remove the Peppermint Bark from the pan by lifting the edges of the aluminum foil. Peel back the foil and break the bark into small irregular pieces. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Makes about 25 pieces.

Simple and Yummy!
