Melted milk choc in double boiler, didn't add peppermint extract as I'm not sure that mine is oil based and didn't want the chocolate to seize. So I put the candy canes in my Magic Bullet which chopped to various sizes. I put the chopped canes through a sieve, and sprinkled a layer of candy cane dust on the melted milk chocolate and mixed some candy cane slivers and dust into the white chocolate. I didn't allow the milk to set completely before spreading the white on top. Then I sprinkled the larger candy cane pieces on top of the white and set the pan outside to cool (Canadian winter here). Since I was putting it outside to set/chill I put a piece of parchment over top and accidentally pressed the cane into the chocolate a little bit too much. The parchment stuck but peeled away easily when the bark had chilled. I was a little disappointed that pressing the cane down into the chocolate wrecked the appearance of the bark but once it's broken into pieces it doesn't look that bad and it stays on the bark. Everyone loved it but I didn't make enough! Will definitely make 2 or 3 batches next time!
