Create an easy-to-make sweet holiday treat in less than 15 minutes. Homemade white chocolate bark requires few ingredients and can be made with pre-chopped nuts to save time. The bark makes a nice gift when wrapped in decorative containers with colored cellophane. Be creative and try different nuts and candies or a combination of both to create a one-of-a-kind chocolate holiday candy.
Line a baking sheet with a sheet of waxed paper. Allow 1 to 2 inches of the waxed paper to hang over the side to make sure the entire cookie sheet is covered.
Chop nuts or crush peppermint candies prior to melting the chocolate. Chop nuts in a food processor or on a cutting board with a sharp knife. Crush candy by placing in a plastic bag and rolling with a rolling pin.
Place the white chocolate morsels in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate on 70 percent power for one minute and stir. Continue to microwave for 30 seconds at a time until smooth, stirring between each melting. Do not overheat.
Pour the melted chocolate onto a covered cookie sheet and spread to a desired thickness. If using candy, strain out the candy dust into the chocolate prior to pouring by sifting the crushed candies through a strainer while holding it over the melted chocolate.
Sprinkle chopped nuts or crushed candy immediately onto the chocolate. Press pieces lightly into the chocolate to keep them in place. Cool for approximately one hour or place in the freezer to speed the process. Break chocolate bark into pieces and store in an airtight container.
