is so easy to make and is just delicious. Made with two types of chocolate and covered in peppermint candies, it’s the perfect holiday treat.
Let’s get started!
– 2 oz semisweet chocolate melted
– 13 oz white chocolate melted
– 1 tsp peppermint extract divided
– 16 peppermint starlight candy crushed
White Scribbled Underline
Melt the chocolate.
In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the semisweet chocolate chips, stopping every 20 seconds to stir until thoroughly melted. Then stir in the peppermint extract.
Firm up the chocolate.
Now pour the melted chocolate onto a baking sheet lined with a Silpat silicone mat. Place the baking sheet into the freezer for about five minutes to firm up the chocolate.
Crush the peppermints.
In the meantime, place the peppermint candies into a Ziploc bag, then use a meat mallet to crush them up into fine pieces. Set aside.
Melt the white chocolate.
Now chop up the real white chocolate and melt it in the microwave in 20-second intervals. Then add the peppermint exxtract and stir.
Firm up the white chocolate.
Now pour the melted white chocolate right over the firmed-up semisweet chocolate and sprinkle the crushed peppermint candy on top while the white chocolate is still wet.
Set the bark
and chop it up.
Place the peppermint bark into the freezer for about 10 minutes to fully firm up. Then break it up into jagged pieces or place it on a cutting board and cut it with a knife. Serve and enjoy!
