Boil heavy cream & butter.
Add to chocolate chips & let sit for 5 minutes.
Add and stir in peppermint extract. Put in fridge for 2-3 hours.
While waiting for the chocolate to cool, unwrap peppermint a (or candy canes). Place into plastic bag.
Crush into tiny pieces with a kitchen utensil (wooden spoons, anyone?)
After 2-3 hours, pull out chocolate and roll into small (nickel-quarter sized) balls.
Roll balls into crushed peppermints.
The whole shebang.
