Christmas Bark Candy

Christmas Bark Candy
Yield: 6-1/2 dozen pieces Prep 30 mins Chill 30 mins Cook 2 mins at high power

Ingredients

  • 1 package (12 ounces) white baking chocolate chips
  • 26 lime-flavored circle candies, finely crushed (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup shelled, chopped pistachios (2 ounces shelled pistachios, or 4 ounces with shells)
  • 1/2 cup (3.5 ounces) green candy-coating disks, coarsely chopped

Make It

1. Butter 17 x 11-inch baking sheet. Place chips in bowl. Microwave on high power 2 minutes. Remove from microwave oven; stir until smooth. Stir in crushed candies and nuts. Let cool 3 minutes (mixture should be still warm enough for coating disks to melt slightly). Stir in coating disks.

2. With a metal spatula, quickly spread the mixture on the prepared baking sheet to 1 inch from edge. Refrigerate until firm, for about 30 minutes.

3. Break bark into about 78 small pieces. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Makes 6-1/2 dozen pieces.
