Peppermint Bark ~ Recipe!
I made this recipe last year for friends and it was a big hit!
12 Ounces of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 lb. of White Chocolate Chips
1 teaspoon of Peppermint Extract
2/3 Cup of Peppermint Candy Crushed
1. Unwrap your Peppermint Candy and place your Peppermint Candy in a zip lock bag. Close. Use a meat hammer or end of a regular case knife to crush all of the candy.
2. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line your 9"x13" baking pan with foil, leaving enough foil to hang over on all sides. Spray foil with Cooking Spray. Pour your bag of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips evenly on the pan and place in oven for about 10 minutes or until they are almost melted. They will not melt down entirely. Using a rubber offset spatula, smooth all the chocolate around the pan evenly. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes until set.
3. Melt the White Chocolate Chips in a double boiler or in a metal bowl over a simmering saucepan with water. Do not allow the water to touch the bottom of the metal bowl. Continue to stir as the chocolate melts. Once the chocolate is almost melted, add 1 teaspoon of Peppermint Extract and continue to stir until all the lumps are out. Do not burn. Once the chocolate is melted, allow to cool for a minute or two before pouring over your Semi Sweet Chocolate base. Pour White Chocolate over Dark Chocolate and quickly spread evenly over Dark Chocolate. Sprinkle with your crushed peppermints. Press peppermints into the white chocolate a bit with your hands. Place in refrigerator to chill.
4. Once set, lift up foil and remove foil from candy. Break into pieces. You are done:))
