  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the semisweet chocolate with 1 tablespoon shortening. Stir every 30 seconds or so, just until the chips begin to lose their shape.
  2. Stir them until chocolate is very smooth, and spoon into a parchment-lined 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Set aside to cool. Let set completely.
  3. Combine the remaining shortening with the white chocolate chips, and microwave following the same instructions above.
  4. When smooth, spread the melted white chocolate over the semisweet layer. Evenly sprinkle crushed peppermints on top. Let set 1 to 2 hours. Break into pieces when you’re ready to serve.
