Holiday Recipe: Peppermint Bark

Photo by Emily Clack
The holidays are getting close.  Instead of bringing a bottle of wine to the next party, try making a home-made treat that everyone will enjoy.

Peppermint Bark
(24 Pieces)

10 ounces of Dark Chocolate or Semisweet chocolate chips
10 ounces of White chocolate chips
4 ounces Crushed peppermint candy or candy canes

Line a large baking sheet with foil and parchment paper. Put 2 cups of semisweet or dark chocolate chips into a double boiler to melt chocolate. Make sure to stir often and when melted, spread onto the baking sheet with a spatula until about ¼ inch thick. Refrigerate chocolate until semi-firm. Then put 2 cups of white chocolate chips into a double boiler to melt chocolate. Pour over other chocolate and spread until even. Crush the peppermint candies in a bag and then sprinkle them onto the chocolate while warm. Refrigerate until firm and then break into pieces and then serve.

This is a perfect holiday gift to give a friend in a pretty tin or a great housewarming gift.
