Holiday Peppermint Bark
I'm a big fan of that pricey white peppermint bark in fancy tins that appears at this time every year. It's fairly easy to make yourself, and it's something a 6-year-old can do with minimal supervision.
Spray a large cookie tray with non-stick spray and then line it with a piece of way paper. Take several large candy canes or a bag of peppermint candies and crush them into small pieces. (How much peppermint flavor you like should determine how many you chop up.)
On the stove, melt two bags of white chocolate chips at a low temperature. When melted, add most of the crushed peppermint and stir it in. Pour the mixture onto the cookie tray and spread over the tray until flat and even. Sprinkle the remaining peppermint pieces on top, pressing them in with a spatula.
Let it cool. Peel off wax paper and break into pieces. Enjoy!
