White Chocolate Peppermint Bark

Some people associate this with the holidays, but I say:  Why wait?  We made these for a bake sale and they were a fabulous success.  Teacher appreciation gifts?  Yes, please!

Get a bunch of starlight mints, place them in a Ziploc storage bag and pound them into shards with a hammer.  This is a great way to release any tension you may have!  Set the mint pieces aside, and prepare your chocolate.  I use a large bag of white chocolate chips.  Place in large glass bowl, and microwave for one minute at 70% power.  Remove, and stir, then put them back for another 30 seconds, again at 70% power.  Stir until smooth (you may need another 15 seconds, depending on your microwave!).  Then add about 3/4 of your mint pieces in and stir.  Pour onto a piece of waxed paper or parchment paper.  Then use the remaining mint pieces to stud along the top.  This will cool quickly and harden.  Then break it into pieces.  Yum!
