Line a rectangular baking tray with baking paper and set aside. Gently warm your chocolate in a bowl, you can do this by popping them into a microwave for 30 seconds at a time, ensure you’re stirring the chocolate to get all the lumps out. Pour the chocolate into the lined baking tray, pop your candy canes and smarties into a sandwich bag and crush them with a rolling pin.  Once they're into small shards sprinkle over the top of the chocolate and set in the fridge.  Why not add cranberries for a Christmas twist.
