peppermint bark

Hello Friend,

I wish you love, peace, health and safety this holiday and in the new year.  


Peppermint bark is a great holiday candy that you can share and give out as stocking stuffers.

Here's the recipe!

Peppermint Bark

Ingredients:
16 oz white chocolate chips
18 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
6 tbsp vegetable oil
6 peppermint candy canes, crushed into small pieces

Directions:
Prepare a rimmed baking sheet by lining it with a piece of parchment paper.

In a double boiler (a heat-proof glass bowl on top of a pot of boiling water), combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips with 2 tbsp of oil.  Using a heat proof spatula, slowly stir the chocolate until it is completely melted which usually takes about 10 minutes.  

Once the chocolate has completed melted, pour it into the prepared baking sheet and using the spatula, spread the chocolate evenly onto the sheet.  Place the baking sheet into the fridge for at least 20 minutes.

While the baking sheet is in the fridge, start melting the white chocolate chips with the remaining oil.  Once the chocolate has completely melted, remove the baking sheet from the fridge and pour the white chocolate over the first layer.  Spread the second layer evenly with your spatula.  Then sprinkle with the  crushed candy cane pieces.

Place the baking sheet into the fridge overnight.  Then, break the chocolate up into uneven pieces.  
Enjoy!
