Chocolate Peppermint Bark - Christmas

Chocolate Peppermint Bark - Christmas created by Billy Green

Christmas candy - Two kinds of chocolate with peppermint chips. Yummy! So pretty, and great for gift giving. I have used chocolate bark (dark and white) with good results and it was less expensive, and hardens up beautifully

Ready In:

ingredients

  • 12 ounces quality white chocolate (like Ghirardelli)
  • 12 ounces quality dark chocolate (like Ghirardelli)
  • 12 cup crushed peppermint candy (I use starlite)

directions

  • Line a 9x12 pan with parchment paper.
  • Melt the dark chocolate (use the method you prefer, either double boiler, or microwave - cook 30 seconds in a heat-proof bowl, stir and repeat until you have a smooth consistency.
  • Pour the melted dark chocolate on the parchment paper, spread the chocolate out until it is about 1/3" thick. You can do this by hitting the pan on the countertop repeatedly, or maybe you could use a spatula to spread the chocolate.
  • Melt the white chocolate, using the steps above. After the chocolate is smooth, pour it on top of the dark chocolate - trying to make the layers the same thickness. (it's best to do this step while the white chocolate is still very soft -- I've had them separate when I broke them into pieces, I think the layers "stick" together better if the white chocolate has not hardened).
  • Unwrap the starlite mints, or peppermints of your choice and put them into a heavy duty ziplock bag. Using a hammer or meat tenderizer - crush the mints then, while the white chocolate is still melted sprinkle on top.
  • Let the chocolates harden in the refrigerator for 2 hours, then break the candy into pieces. This needs to be stored in the refrgerator if you live in a warm/humid climate.

    I used grocery store chocolate blocks, so not the fanciest, but the bark turned out great! Thanks

    Great recipe! Just a quick trick; I sifted my crushed peppermint and mixed the peppermint dust into the white chocolate and sprinkled the rest on top, and it turned out delicious!! Nice lil crunches throughout the bark..
