  • Microwave chocolate chips in large microwavable bowl on HIGH for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until almost melted, stirring after 1 minute. Stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in peppermint extract.

  • Spread on large foil-lined baking sheet to 1/4-inch thickness. Add food color, drop by drop, over mixture. Using a wooden skewer, swirl color through chocolate. Sprinkle with crushed candies, pressing lightly into chocolate with spatula.

  • Refrigerate about 10 minutes or until firm. Break into irregular pieces to serve. Store in covered container at cool room temperature or in refrigerator up to 5 days.

Cooking tip

Test Kitchen Tips:

  • Substitute 12 ounces white baking chocolate, coarsely chopped, for the white chocolate chips.


  • Before sprinkling on the peppermint candies, sift the crushed candies through a fine strainer to remove any ultrafine, dustlike pieces.
