The recipe makes so much that we have a container leftover for us, too. Oh, and a lot of candy cane debris in the pan, too.
I'm hoping Gameboy's teachers liked their popcorn. Usually, the middle school teachers don't get much in the way of gifts, but we find that the ESE teachers do have to have a lot more involvement with their students, so we send a token of thanks.
Now, the kids will be home for 17 days!
Edited to add the recipe for Peppermint Bark:
2 bags GOOD QUALITY Chocolate Chips (I used Ghiradelli 60% Cacao)
2 bags GOOD QUALITY White Chocolate Chips
1 tablespoon Peppermint Extract
Candy Canes, crushed
Take a cookie sheet and line it with wax paper or foil.
Next, use a double boiler(or a bowl atop a 3 qt pot half full of water) and melt the chocolate chips, stirring constantly (if I've got Scharffen Berger in the house, some of it will get melted into this). Once melted, spread out onto the cookie sheet and cool in the fridge for one hour.
Repeat the process with the white chocolate. At the very end, add the peppermint extract. (Do it sooner and it will seize and get crumbly) Quickly spread it over the chocolate layer.
Top with the crushed candy canes and chill for an hour or more.
Break apart as you see fit. I flipped it out of the pan and used a pizza wheel on mine.
