Ok, I got the link to work once by removing the space between 'gluten' and 'free'.

I have had trouble several times getting their links to work on here. Cruelshoes knows how to do it. Something about a tiny url.

Peppermint Candy Shortbread Cookies

I made another candy cane recipe -- it really came out great. Here's what I did:

10 ounces chocolate chips

1/4 tsp. canola oil

8 regular-size Spangler CHERRY FLAVOR Candy Canes (14 gr each, they came in a 9-ounce box that holds 18 candy canes) - or use flavor of your choice

Pam

Melt 10 oz. bag choc. chips in double boiler. Add 1/4 tsp. canola oil for ease of use.

Note: I used Enjoy Life semi-sweet chocolate chips, which are free of gluten, soy, nuts, and dairy. They are made in a dedicated nut and gluten-free facility. (For those super sensitive to dairy and soy, the plant does process dairy and soy, although neither are in the chocolate.) If you've never had them, these chocolate chips are amazingly delicious. Everyone will think you're using the finest gourmet chocolate.

On the back of the bag of Enjoy Life Choc. Chips is a recipe for Chocolate Bark that calls for nut-free trail mix. I used the recipe as inspiration then used candy canes instead of trail mix to make a Chocolate-Cherry Crunch Bark.

I peeled the wrapping from 8 Spangler Cherry Flavor Candy Canes, put them in a zip lock bag and used a rolling pin to crush them into small pieces - it looked so pretty, like pieces of glass. I added the candy pieces to the chocolate. You could of course use more or less candy cane, to taste.

I lightly greased a glass dish with Pam and poured the chocolate mixture in and spread it to the thickness of chocolate bark -- maybe a bit thinner. (Next time I might try using wax paper instead).

Stick it in the fridge until cool, break into pieces and enjoy. OH SO EASY! The crunchy cherry "bite" with the chocolate was soooooo good! Of course, peppermint would be wonderful, too. Note: The recipe on the bag says to melt the chocolate in a microwave. I think a double boiler works better, but do whatever is easiest! :)

If anyone tries this, let me know. I hope you enjoy it.
