    Ingredients

    • 1 cup lightly crushed striped peppermints or candy canes
    • 14oz white chocolate candy melts, melted
    • 1 1/2 cups dark cocoa candy melts, melted
    • Equipment
    • Silicone Christmas tree-shaped ice cube tray

    Method

    • Sprinkle approximately 1 tbsp of the crushed peppermint candies in the bottom of 18 mini tree-shaped silicone ice cube molds.

    • Spoon white candy melts into a Ziplock/freezer bag and seal the bag. Snip a small corner off the bag. Lightly grip the bag and pipe enough candy to cover the mints by about 1/2 inch. Tap the pan on the kitchen counter to smooth  the melted white candy. Refrigerate for about 5 minutes until the candy is just set.

    • Spoon the dark cocoa candy melts into another Ziplock bag and seal bag. Snip a small corner off the bag and pipe a thin layer of dark cocoa candy melts on top of white candy melts. Tap tray on countertop to smooth. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes.

    • Remove candies from the tray. Wrap in cellophane and tie with a bow, or package in a gift box.
