White Chocolate Peppermint Crunch

This is my favorite confection to make at Christmas. Not only is it easy, it's delicious as well. I like to fill small bags with the crunchy candy to place in gift baskets.—Nancy Shelton, Boaz, Kentucky

    I didn't care for the oil and the lack of peppermint taste. I made them a second time and omitted the oil and added 1 tsp peppermint extract and it was good.

    I've made peppermint bark for years but I don't add butter or oil. Just melt white chocolate and stir in crushed peppermint and a couple drops of peppermint oil, not flavor. Maybr thr problem with the person who had the mixture get thick and not spreadable is if you get even a tiny bit of water in the chocolate it will get thick and unspreadable.Hope this helps

    I have made something similar to this in the past, but tried this recipe for this year. After melting the candy coating, I stirred in the oil and remaining butter. That candy coating turned so thick, texture was weird. Even tried to reheat for a couple of seconds..I could NOT begin to spread it out or use it at all. hmm! Any suggestions? Why use the canola oil and butter? Other recipes i had seen was to melt the candy coating and then add the crushed peppermint, pour out to desired thickness. Love to try new recipes..but I goofed somehow on this one! any suggestions..would love to hear!
