Mint Bark

When asked to come up with an ingredient from our Cupboard Of OPportunity (COOP) to build a meal around, my husband decided to get rid of some leftover white chocolate coating. We found this recipe on Cooks.com, and made it to take to friends'. They LOVED it -- my only regret is that I only made 1/2 a batch! See the end instruction for ideas. . .
