Peppermint Bark by My 8 yr old

My daughter has turned into a little baker recently. So everyday for the last week we have been baking something different. So far we have made  pies, a cobbler, cake, bundt cake , cookies & this peppermint bark. This recipe only needed 3 ingredients and no baking at all. 
                              PEPPERMINT BARK:
                      2 1/2 cups of milk chocolate chips
                      2 1/2 cups of white chocolate chips
                      7 candy canes

1. Melt 3/4 cups of milk chocolate chips at 1 time in the microwave for 45 seconds take out mix and keep adding and microwaving until they are all melted and smooth 

2. Pour in into a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper then refrigerate for 10 minutes
3 . Meanwhile take the plastic off the candy canes and smash them this can be done by putting them in a zip lock bag & using a mallet or rolling pin

 4. Now melt the white chocolate the same way & pour it on the milk chocolate sprinkle the crushed candy canes on top & refrigerate for 20 minutes

5. Now break it into pieces we did this by dropping it on the counter then putting the large pieces in a bag and banging it a few times. 

They can be given out as gifts in cute bags or saved for yourself to snack on.
