1/2 Photos of Mccormick's Peppermint Bark
I found this on the box of McCormick's Pure Peppermint Extract and decided to try it. I'm usually not a fan of Peppermint Bark because the balance of chocolate and peppermint always seems uneven. That being said, this recipe has a great balance to it and even looks great once finished. My boyfriend loved it so much he pleaded with me not to serve it at our dinner party so he could save it all for himself! ;) My only concern with this recipe is that the bark can get stuck if there are too many wrinkles in the foil. I wonder if this could be fixed with wax paper? Let me know what works for you!
