For as long as I can remember, my mother has made white chocolate candies for the Holidays. In particular, white chocolate & peppermint bark. The stuff is to die for...we are talking crack addictive level goodness. Old roommates, office colleagues and friends would begin to ask me if my mom was sending the chocolates sometime right around Thanksgiving. Without fail, that tin full of homemade candy would arrive shortly thereafter. This year I decided to try my own hand at making my Christmas favorite to share with many of my new wonderful clients and friends. Thankfully I had a batch of my mother's on hand to taste test compare. One burnt batch and 2 1/2 pounds of white chocolate later, I had the whole double broiler thing down to successfully melt chocolate.
