Peppermint Pretzel Bark
1 bag of mini pretzel
2 packages white almond bark
1 package of peppermint candy canes
Line a large baking sheet with foil. Place pretzels in a single layer on foil, trying not to over lap but keeping them close together. Next, unwrap candy canes and place in large plastic bag. Using a heavy spoon or meat tenderizer crush candy canes until they are small pieces (a food processor would work for this as well). Place almond bark in a large bowl and cook in microwave for a minute, take out, stir, then place back into microwave and cook for 30 secs and stir again. Repeat this until all the almond bark is melted and smooth. Pour melted almond bark over pretzel trying to cover each one. I then used a spatula to gently spread the almond bark around to try to reach all the corners. Finally, sprinkle the crushed candle canes on top of the almond bark. Place in fridge to harden for at least an hour. When completely harden, remove and gently lift bark off the pan peeling back the foil. Break into bite size pieces. It will not need to be refrigerated, should stay firm.
