So, thus begins seventeen glorious (school-free) days of respite. I leave you with a festive treat.
white chocolate rock.
>> 2 cups white chocolate discs
>> red or green food colouring
>> 2 peppermint candy canes (crushed).
Melt chocolate in the microwave on medium power, stirring every minute. Pour onto parchment paper and spread with back of spoon. Drop food colouring (two to three drops) over chocolate. Swirl with a knife. Sprinkle with candy cane. Let cool, and when hardened, break apart into bite-sized pieces.
Enjoy! I'm off to a ugly christmas sweater party with friends.
