10 regular size candy canes
2 pounds (1 kg) white chocolate

Cooking Instructions:

Take wax paper or parchment paper and line your cookie sheet with this.
Let your kid(s) help you unwrap the candy canes then place them in a zip lock bag and then take a hammer or rolling pin and crush the candy canes into chunks of less than 1/4 of an inch then set aside.
To melt your white chocolate place in a boiler or a sauce pan and set over hot water make sure it is not boiling water and be careful not to scorch your chocolate as you may know that white chocolate can scorch very easily keep stirring till smooth. Now you and your kid(s) can stir in all of the crushed candy cane except for about 1/4 cup into the chocolate mix and then pour onto the cookie sheet in a even layer then let your kid(s) use the 1/4 cup of left over candy canes and sprinkle on the top then you place it in the Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes or until it is set.

Remove the peppermint bark from the wax or parchment paper and then break it into chunks by hand then place in an air tight container.

If you would like to make your treat a two toned color then before it goes in the refrigerator take some melted semisweet chocolate and drizzle it over the mix and it will have that Zebra look.
