Peppermint is my favorite Christmas time flavor. This Peppermint Bark is a simple treat that you have to try out this season.
- 4 oz bakers white chocolate
- 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ⅛ teaspoon peppermint extract
- ½ cup peppermint crunch baking chips
Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Place white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook just 30 seconds at a time string with a clean and dry spoon in between until fully melted.
Spread melted white chocolate onto the parchment paper. Place in the freezer to harden for 10 minutes. Once sold remove from freezer.
Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt for 30 seconds at a time. String with a clean and dry spoon in between until fully melted. Once melted mix in ⅛ teaspoon of peppermint extract or less to taste.
Spread melted chocolate on top of frozen white chocolate.
Next top with peppermint chips and return to the freezer. Freeze again for at least 10 minutes or until your chocolate is hard.
Remove from freezer and paper and break into pieces to serve. Store them in an airtight container in the fridge or eat them right away.
Melting chocolate Tips
Melting chocolate can be a little tricky so it's important to use higher quality chocolate especially when it comes to white chocolate.
I bought a white chocolate bar that was made for baking and melting.
When it comes to chocolate I find it to be easier to melt and used a good brand chocolate chip.
I placed them separately in microwave-safe bowls and only heated for 30 seconds at a time and mixed. It only took about 1 minute each to be completely melted and smooth.
If you want to skip the microwave you could melt each separately in a double boiler instead.
