I am a fan of peppermint any time of the year, not just Christmas. I stocked up on candy canes this year when all the Christmas sales hit. Here is a easy way to make peppermint bark.
Melt your chocolate, or carob, in a double boiler and pour into whatever molds you might have.
Then pour in the white chocolate, or what I used was a coconut based chocolate. Sounds like too many strange flavors that shouldn't go together but it was surprisingly amazing.
