  1. Lightly grease a 9x9 inch pan and line with waxed paper, smoothing out wrinkles; set aside.
  2. Place the semisweet chocolate and 1 teaspoon of the canola oil in the top of a double boiler over just barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. When the chocolate is melted, stir in 1/4 teaspoon of the peppermint extract. Pour the melted chocolate into the prepared pan, and spread evenly over the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle half of the crushed peppermints over the chocolate layer. Refrigerate until completely hardened, about 1 hour.
  3. Place the white chocolate and the remaining 1 teaspoon canola oil in the top of a double boiler over just barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. When the chocolate is melted, stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract. Pour the white chocolate directly over the semisweet chocolate layer; spread evenly. Sprinkle the remaining crushed candy over the top and gently press in. Refrigerate until completely hardened. Remove from pan; break into small pieces to serve.

YUMMY!!! I didn't have any mint extract, so when I crushed the candies, I sifted them and took all the crumbs that fell through and melted them with the white chocolate. Then I sprinkled the res...

Delish! The only word of advice I would offer is that if you put peppermint pieces in between the layers, don't put many. I put a good amount in between the layers and when I went to break up th...

Great recipe! I used candy canes instead. I also halved the peppermint extract based on other reviews and I wish I hadn't. Next time I will use all of the peppermint extract and put it in the wh...
