    My sister makes that stuff (probably not QUITE as good as real Belgian stuff but bet it’s pretty close) and it is SUPER easey to make. Put a bunch of candy canes in a baggie and run a rolling pin over them to crush them, melt white chocolate chips in a double boiler, mix together and pour in a 9 x 13 pan and let cool. Break into pieces. Yum!

    Here is a recipe from online. I don’t think she uses a recipe. Really you can pretty much eyball it and add more or less of the chocolate or candy canes to taste.

    Crushed candy canes, to yield 1 cup
    2 pounds white chocolate
    Peppermint flavorings, optional

    Place candy canes in a plastic bag and hammer into 1/4-inch chunks or smaller. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Combine candy cane chunks with chocolate (add peppermint flavoring at this point if desired.) Pour mixture onto a cookie sheet layered with parchment or waxed paper and place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes or until firm. Remove from cookie sheet and break into pieces (like peanut brittle.)

    That good, huh?

    As a Nashville product, this might be something local/yummy to ship the relatives. Thanks for the rec!

    Scratch that. King Leo used to be local, but was apparently bought by a California company and all the old-fashioned equipment moved there.
