Unwrap and crush candy canes. (Make sure to leave some larger pieces of candy canes to go on top) Melt two bags of white chocolate morsels in microwave for 3 min. Stir melted chocolate and poor half of the crushed candy canes into the melted chocolate and stir again. Poor mixture onto parchment paper, spread mixture to the thickness you prefer.
