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