Peppermint and Cherry Bark

I had a sweet tooth this weekend and I wanted to make a festive treat.
I made Peppermint bark and Cherry bark. This recipe is extremely easy/fool proof. The most difficult part is now munching all of it at once!

Just melt about 1/2 a cup of vegan chocolate on a double boiler.
Crush up 1 candy cane (I used our mortar and pestle but you can put the cane into a plastic bag and mash it with a rolling pin).
Throw in half of the crumbles while the chocolate is still melting.
Pour the melted mixture into a wax paper lined pan
Sprinkle the remaining crushed cane on top.
Let cool in the fridge for about 30-45 mins (if you're in a hurry you can throw it in the freezer)

What is your favorite easy sweet recipe?

Well it is definitely a Monday here! Hope your day is a good one
