5-Ingredient Peppermint Bark - Printer Friendly
This layered peppermint bark is a delectable blend of semisweet chocolate, white chocolate, and peppermint.
This chocolaty treat is easy to make and perfect for gift-giving.
I made this for hostess gifts and it was a big hit.
Yummy and easy to make!! It's also much cheaper than the kind made my Williams S*****!!!! Tip: Spread the melted chocolate into a diposable aluminum pan. There will be no need to grease the pan and the bark will be easy to remove by slightly bending the pan. Also, use a pizza cutter to cut when the bark is not completely cooled solid. Thank you for the great recipe idea!!
First of all, I didn't use 25 candy canes. I think I used 6 or 8 total! It was perfectly fine. I used sugar free dark chocolate for the first layer and I didn't add oil but I did add the peppermint extract (microwave 1 min, stir, microwave 30 seconds.) Only chill dark for 10 mins @ most before adding white layer or the 2 layers will separate. Once finished to break up into pieces I put the whole bark in a gallon zip-lock back and dropped it on kitchen floor. There may be an easier way to break it up but that worked for me!
Like Hera, I forgot to add the crushed peppermint in between the layers but the end product is fanbulous and makes a very festive, sophisticated gift for the holidays. I had candy canes on hand so I crushed up enough to make 1/2 cup that got sprinkled on top once I poured the white chocolate on top of the dark chcocolate...mmmmm!
i had know trouble at all with this recipe. it is good, easy to follow, and it is very holiday like. i have made it for christmas dinner that i am going to. thank you very much from florida. the only mistake i made , was not to made a double batch.
Everyone's going to think you've got a team of elves working overtime when you turn out these homemade Christmas candies like it's no big deal.
