8 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate squares, chopped
6 ounces white baking chocolate squares, chopped
Optional: 1/2 t. peppermint extract
1/2 cup peppermint candy canes, crushed

Place chocolates in 2 separate microwave-safe bowls. Working with one bowl at a time, microwave on high setting for one minute; stir until smooth. Microwave an additional 10 to 15 seconds, if needed. Pour semi-sweet chocolate onto a wax paper-lined baking sheet; set aside. Stir extract into white chocolate, if using. Slowly pour white chocolate over semi-sweet chocolate on baking sheet. Swirl chocolates together with a knife; sprinkle with crushed candy. Chill until firm, about one hour. Use wax paper to lift bark from baking sheet; break into pieces. Store tightly covered at room temperature. Makes about one pound.

I purchased my peppermint extract at Wal-Mart. I don't know if you have one close by, but it can be bought there :) Hope this helps! 4 stars
