Candy Cane Bark – An irresistible treat for the Holidays

Share Button

Oh we’ve been in the kitchen again and this time it’s at the request of HERSHEY’S CHIPITS…they asked me to whip up a super simple recipe to share with you all in time for the Christmas season. I’m all about a simple recipe and with CHIPITS products there are just about a million to choose from!

First off I went to Hershey’s Canada recipe website and had a browse around. I ended up making their super simple chocolate chip cookies which I’ll be sharing later and also liked their White Peppermint Bark recipe but I had no hard candy canes on hand. What I did have were some HERSHEY’S CHIPITS Pure White Chocolate Chips and a bag of HERSHEY’S KISSES Candy Cane Flavored Candies which I’d picked up when I saw them in the local store and so I made a variation.

The nice part about the Candy Cane Bark recipe I made is that the Kisses are soft and so there’s no hard bits for little ones who may be visiting. This is beyond EASY…just 2 ingredients and you’re on your way!
