Ingredients

  • 24 ounces almond bark (see note for alternate options!)
  • 1 bag unwrapped Hershey Candy Cane Kisses OR 6 bars Hershey Candy Cane Bars
  • 1/2 cup crushed candy canes

Instructions

  • Line a large baking sheet with wax paper or a silpat baking mat. 
  • In a microwave-safe bowl melt almond bark (you may need to chop it in half to get it to fit in a bowl) at half power for 2 minutes. Return to microwave for 20 seconds at a time, stirring after each until smooth. 
  • Pour onto prepared pan and use a rubber spatula or a spoon to spread into an even 1/4-inch thick layer. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes or in the freezer 5 minutes. 
  • While chocolate is chilling, melt candy cane kisses or bars in a microwave-safe bowl at half power for 2 minutes. Return to microwave for 20 seconds at a time, stirring after each until smooth. 
  • Pour over chilled chocolate layer using a spatula or spoon to spread evenly. Immediately sprinkle crushed candy canes on top. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes or in the freezer 5 minutes. 
  • Use a butter knife to break bark into pieces and serve or store up to 3 weeks. 

Notes

Instead of almond bark you can use melting chocolate, baking chocolate bars (sweetened), chocolate chips, white chocolate.
