A delectable combination of chocolate and white chocolate topped with peppermint and drizzled with dark chocolate.
- 12 ounces chocolate chips, dark or semisweet (divided)
- 12 ounces white chocolate chips
- 5 candy canes, crushed
- 1/2 teaspoon Peppermint extract
- Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set it aside.
- Melt 10 ounces of your chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Alternatively, you can melt using a double broiler. Pour onto prepared baking sheet, spreading using a spatula. You can have this layer be thick or thin – totally up to you. Just keep in mind that the thicker the bark ends up being, the harder it will be to break apart. Place baking sheet in fridge to set and harden for at least 30 minutes.
- While that is chilling in the fridge, break candy canes into pieces and place in a gallon-sized plastic bag. Using a rolling pin, crush as much as possible. They won’t be uniform in size but that’s not a problem at all, so don’t lose sleep over it.
- Now melt the white chocolate chips, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Add the peppermint extract and stir well. Take the baking sheet out of the fridge and pour a layer of white chocolate on top of the chilled chocolate layer, spreading with a spatula. You may find that the bottom layer will melt a bit and cause streaks in your white chocolate layer – don’t be alarmed! We’re going to be covering it with peppermint and more chocolate anyway.
- Now pour your crushed peppermint over the still-warm white chocolate layer, trying to distribute as evenly as possible.
- Melt the other 2 ounces of chocolate in a plastic bag in the microwave, removing every 20 seconds to knead the bag until melted. Cut a small corner off the bag and use this to drizzle chocolate over the top in whatever pattern (or lack thereof) you’d like.
- Place back into the fridge to set for at least 30 more minutes. Once hard, take it out and crack into pieces. You can break it into as many pieces as you want. If you want to break the thing in half and call it a day, power to you. Keep chilled until ready to serve and enjoy!
Note: Number of servings depends on how it’s broken apart.
