    Peppermint Bark

    Peppermint is synonyms with holidays and the easiest treat you can make this holiday season has to be the peppermint bark. I am not sure if this even qualifies as a recipe just because it’s so easy. Basically you are not creating anything from scratch but simply using already available products to form these barks. It’s super simple, super quick and you can pack and gift them as little gifts to your friends. If you are running short of time and don’t know what to make at the last moment, makes these peppermint bark.

    Peppermint Bark White Chocolate

    To make these all you need to do is melt some white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate and then layer them in a pan and top with crushed peppermint candy. It’s that simple. The important thing here is to use a good quality chocolate because the taste of the bark depends totally on the type of chocolate you use. I would highly recommend using chocolate and not chocolate chips here. Chocolate chips do not melt as well as the chocolates does.

    And now I gotta run because we are going on a trip tomorrow and I haven’t yet packed my stuff! But seriously make this peppermint bark, it’s so good and so easy. And I kept the peppermint flavor very subtle because I do not like it overpowering my dessert. This was perfect for me.

     

    Method

    * Line a 9 x13 inch baking pan with parchment paper.

    Chop the white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate. Place the white chocolate in a bowl and set aside.

    Melt the white chocolate using double boiler method or in the microwave. For double boiler method place bowl on top of a pan of simmering water (not boiling) and whisk the chocolate till completely melted. If using microwave stir the chocolate every 15 seconds till completely melted. Add crushed peppermint candy to the melted white chocolate and mix. Also met the semi-sweet chocolate side by side. I melted one in microwave and white chocolate using double boiler method.

    Pour the melted chocolate-peppermint mixture onto the prepared pan and spread it into a thin layer using a spatula.

    Take a spatula or knife and run it through the the pan to form a marble effect/design. You first go length wise and then go side wise. Keep doing till you are happy with the final look. Now sprinkle crushed candy canes throughout the pan.

    Place the pan in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours or till completely set. Once set, break into pieces of different shapes and size.

    * You can add more crushed peppermint candy for a stronger peppermint flavor. Add up to 1/3 cup for a stronger flavor. I like mint in subtle amount and hence this was perfect for me.

    * Use a good quality chocolate for making these barks and do not use chocolate chips.
