Now, before anyone says, “What the…Christmas candy?” give me a chance to explain. This is not Peppermint Bark. In fact, this is a new tradition we are establishing for…Spring. Introducing Fruit Smoothie Bark.
Made with tender, loving care and only two ingredients. Two bags of Guittard Choc-Au-Lait chips and one box of Jolly Rancher Fruit Smoothie candy canes. You could use any kind of candy canes that you like–Sweet Tart, Spree, Skittles–any of those odd flavored ones that you can never figure out what to do with because they severely have no business hanging out at Christmas time. Honestly.
We chose the Fruit Smoothie kind because the flavors sound divine–and yes you can still get them from Amazon. We just happened to already have these in the cupboard and figured we’d better get creative.
I mean, there’s just something wrong with throwing out pretty little candy canes just because they can’t find the right season to live in.
Here’s what you do~
Melt the white chocolate slowly in a double-boiler.
Crush up the candy canes to pieces the size of peas.
Stir them into the melted chocolate…
and mix well.
Spread on waxed paper…
to about 1/2 inch thick. If you put the wax paper on a cookie sheet you can move it to cool in the fridge. You can let it cool on the counter if you’d rather, but I think it set up harder and shinier in the cold.
When it’s set–in about and hour or so, break into bite sized pieces and serve in a pretty, little serving dish then listen to people rave. A portable, bite sized fruit smoothie that you can carry in your pocket. Well, after you put it in a zip-loc bag, that is.
Seriously, it’s fabulous.
