Peppermint Bark

From Debbie Douangaphaivong.  Love Debbie's warning on her recipe card at the treat exchange:  "WARNING:  Make at your own may find that you can't stop eating it."

12 oz. semi sweet chocolate chips
12 oz. white chocolate
Crushed peppermint candy (i.e. candy canes)  About 1/2 cup or to your preference
1/2 tsp peppermint extract

Line foil into a 9x12 pan.  Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  Put foil lined pan into oven to warm.  Take out after 5-10 minutes.  Then, pour 12 oz chocolate chips onto the foil to cover the bottom.  Put back into the oven until melted.  Take out and spread melted chocolate chips evenly.  Put into the fridge to cool.  While chocolate is cooling, melt package of white chocolate and 1/2 tsp peppermint extract in double boiler over the stove making sure not to let white chocolate get too hot.  When melted, stir well, birng out the chocolate from fridge and pour white chocolate on top quickly.  Spread evenly, then sprinkle crushed peppermint candy on top.  put back into fridge to harden.  Cut into squares or break with hands and store in a covered container.
