Layered Peppermint Bark Recipe
The soft ganache center contrasts perfectly with the crunchy peppermint and white chocolate layers.
This layered peppermint bark is a delectable blend of semisweet chocolate, white chocolate, and peppermint.
This peppermint bark has a delicious milk chocolate layer on the bottom with white chocolate and bits of candy canes on top.
Great peppermint bark, I made EXACTLY per recipe. NEXT TIME I will do this: 1) Omit cream from chocolate, it makes it too soft and melts on hands too easily. 2) Melt ALL of the white chocolate at one time and spread on sheet, layer with 1/4 crushed candy 3) Spread all of the semisweet chocolate on top of chilled white chocolate, the semisweet chocolate has a strong flavor, so make the top layer of the semisweet chocolate thinner than the white chocolate ( I was temped to use equal parts chocolate just because I had the semisweet chips left). 4) Sprinkle with the rest of the crushed peppermint candy. Like I said, I tried the exact recipe and the semisweet chocolate didn't ever set up correctly.
Fabulous! I accidentally put in way too much peppermint extract into the dark chocolate layer, but it tasted perfect. I did as others suggested and sifted the broken candy canes and added the "peppermint dust" to the white chocolate layer. I did the dark chocolate in a double boiler, but then just did the white chocolate in the microwave. Both came out great. I did dark on bottom, white, then sprinkled the peppermint in on the top. A lot of it fell out when I was breaking the bark, so next time I think I will either push it in harder or do as other recipes suggest and put the peppermint pieces on the bottom, pour white chocolate layer over, then dark chocolate layer on the top. (invert when ready to serve).
White chocolate peppermint bark dipped in semi-sweet chocolate is perfect for that holiday plate. You can also add a bit of peppermint extract for extra zing.
