Diana's Peppermint Bark


1 bag dark chocolate chips
1 bag white chocolate chips
Peppermint candies, crushed

In a microwavable bowl, melt dark chocolate. Use the directions on the back of the bag, but usually a minute will do it. Pour dark chocolate onto a baking pan lined with waxed paper. Sprinkle peppermints on top, and let harden for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate; start with 30 seconds because it tends to dry out. Pour white chocolate on top of the dark, and freeze until firm. Remove from pan, and break into bite sized pieces.
