Tip of the Day 1 January 2010

Peppermint Brittle

Christmas is well and truly over, a new year has begun. So, if you have dozens of candy canes leftover , like we do, and need a way to use them up this is the treat for you!

Ingredients:
250g block white chocolate
6 - 10 small peppermint candy canes

Method:
Line a Swiss roll pan with baking paper or heavy tin foil. In a microwave safe container add the white chocolate and heat on medium in the microwave for about 2 -3 minutes. Stop during heating and stir occasionally until the chocolate is smooth and melted.

Put the candy canes in a large plastic bag. Using a rolling pin or another similar tool, begin breaking the candy canes into small pieces. Stir the candy into the melted chocolate and spread in the pan, evenly.

Place in refrigerator for about an hour to set completely and then break the into pieces.
