Peppermint Pretzel White Chocolate Bark

Makes 12 servings * Hands on time 15 minutes * Ready in 25 minutes

1 (16-oz.) package vanilla candy coating, chopped (Log House CandiQuik Vanilla Candy Coatingrks great)
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
Parchment paper
1 cup coarsely chopped pretzel sticks
2/3 cup coarsely chopped peppermint candy canes

1. Microwave candy coating in a 1-qt. microwave-safe glass bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 minute; stir. Microwave until melted and smooth, stirring at 30-second intervals. Stir in peppermint extract.
Note - My GE Microwave requires you to change the temperature to medium each time you microwave. Last time I tried doing this without lowering my temperature, it burnt the chocolate so this is an important step to take. It took me 1 minute, plus an additional three 30 second intervals for the chocolate to fully melt.)
2. Spread half of melted candy coating about 1/8 inch thick in a parchment paper-lined jelly-roll pan.You can use a soft rubber spatula to smooth out the coating on the pan. Sprinkle 1/2 cup chopped pretzels and 1/3 cup chopped candy canes over melted candy coating, and press into coating. Repeat procedure with remaining ingredients on another parchment paper-lined jelly-roll pan. Chill 5 minutes or until cool and firm. Break into pieces.
