  • 1 pound vanilla-flavored candy coating, cut up
  • 6 ounces white baking chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup finely crushed lemon drops, peppermint candy canes or fruit-flavored hard candy (about 6 oz.)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped macadamia nuts or slivered almonds (optional)


  1. Line a large baking sheet with foil; set aside. In a heavy medium saucepan, heat candy coating and white baking chocolate over low heat, stirring frequently until melted and smooth. Remove from heat.
  2. Stir in 1/2 cup of the crushed candy. Pour mixture onto the prepared baking sheet.; spread to about 3/8-inch thick. Sprinkle with remaining crushed candy and macadamia nuts, if you like; press slightly.
  3. Chill candy about 30 minutes, or until firm. (Or let candy stand at room temperature for several hours until firm.) Use foil to lift firm candy from the baking sheet; carefully peel off foil and break candy into pieces.
  4. To store, layer the pieces of candy between waxed paper in airtight container; cover. Store in refrigerator up to 2 weeks, or freeze up to 3 months. Serve at room temperature. Makes about 1-3/4 pounds (about thirty-six, 2-inch pieces.).

I use to buy crushed lemon drops but can't find them now. Do you have a source for the crushed lemon drops?

I love lemon, and this is different than the usual peppermint bark. I found if I put the flat cookie sheet in a low temp. oven for a few minutes, take it out and put the tin foil on it & spread the melted bark & vanilla chips, that I have a lot longer to spread it out & put the candy on it. At that point I slid the foil onto my cold counter-top to set. I also made some with chopped spearmint candies.
