Super Easy Christmas Candy

This candy is SO EASY to make, I am almost embarrassed to blog about it. However, it has become a Holiday staple for me, so I feel it should be included. I make this start to finish in about an hour. There are so many different options for it, you really can be creative and do whatever you like.
First, I melt 6 – 8 oz of candy. For demonstration purposes, I started with ivory bark. I add 1 TBSP of shortening and melt it in the microwave, stirring frequently.

 To that, I added ¼ cup of chopped ( I used my food processor) oreos.

 Stir well. I then spread the mixture on to a wax paper covered jelly roll pan. I sprinkle  a few remaining oreo crumbs on top and refrigerate until firm.

As I mentioned above, there are a ton of options for this. I also make a version with mint extract and candy canes, and with mint extract, green food coloring, and chopped Andes mints on the top. 

It really doesn’t get any easier than this! When the candy is firm, I take it out, break it into shards and freeze it in Ziploc bags until I need it.
I’m on a roll today, so I’m off to continue my candy making madness.

Ooh! I love the layers. I have done this before, but never with two kinds of chocolate on top of each other. I think I might give it a try this afternoon. Thanks!
