Ingredients

  • package dark chocolate candy melts
  • 1/2 to 1  Teaspoon  peppermint extract
  • 1/3  Cup  crushed peppermint candies or candy canes

Directions

Over a double-boiler or in a microwave, melt the dark chocolate. Using an offset spatula, spread melted chocolate on a sheet of waxed paper lined on a cookie sheet. Let it set until dry. Once the dark chocolate is dry, melt the white chocolate using the same method. Once the white chocolate is melted, add the peppermint extract. Stir quickly, before the chocolate begins to seize. Use an offset spatula to spread the white chocolate over the dark chocolate. Try to cover as much of the dark chocolate as you can.

Immediately after spreading the white chocolate, sprinkle the top with the crushed peppermint or candy cane pieces.

Let the bark dry, break into pieces, and enjoy.

Peppermint Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peppermint Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
