The hardest part is melting the chocolates and making sure that you don't get any water mixed in with the chocolate. I decided to try making peppermint bark different ways this year. We bought a plastic candy molds and silicon molds and I am going to use them to make shaped bark.
Milk Chocolate Chips
White Chocolate Bark
Peppermint Candy, Crushed
Melt the chocolate chips and white chocolate. I used the microwave by heating the chocolate at 15 second intervals, stirring during each interval, until melted. The chocolate can also be melted in a double boiler. Be very care with the white chocolate because it scorches easily.

I made a couple of chocolate stars with a layer of white chocolate (refrigerate for 45 minutes), a layer of peppermint, and then milk chocolate.

The plastic mold was also easy to use. I layered white chocolate into the mold.
