Servings 20 servings
- 4 3.5 oz bars good quality dark chocolate
- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract optional
- 4 3.5 oz bars good quality white chocolate
- ⅓ cup crushed peppermint candy divided
Line a 9×12 pan with parchment paper.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the dark chocolate until it is smooth and glossy in 30 second intervals for 2-3 minutes, stirring after each interval. Pour the melted dark chocolate on the parchment paper and use a rubber spatula to spread it out evenly. Refrigerate until it sets, about 30 minutes.
In another microwave safe bowl, melt the white chocolate until it is smooth and glossy, in 30 second intervals for 2-3 minutes, stirring after each interval. Stir in half of the crushed pepper candy into the white chocolate. Pour the white chocolate on top of the solid dark chocolate and spread out evenly on top of the dark chocolate layer. Sprinkle the remaining peppermint on top.
Place in the refrigerator until set, about 1- 2 hours. Remove from parchment paper and break into smaller pieces.
Storage: The chocolate bark will keep at room temperature or in the fridge for up to two weeks.
Freezing Instructions: You can freeze chocolate peppermint bark, but you have to make sure that it is really well wrapped to prevent discoloration. Wrap the pieces individually with parchment or wax paper, and then with plastic wrap or foil and place in an airtight container. Frozen bark will keep for 2 to 3 months.
