The recipe calls for a double boiler, but if you do not have one, you can make one yourself. Add about 1-2″ of water to a pan and boil it. Place a metal bowl over the top of the pan and the steam from the boiling water will melt the chocolate.
- 12 oz white chocolate pieces
- 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate pieces
- ½ teaspoon peppermint extract (split in half)
- 4-5 candy canes, crushed
- Melt milk chocolate with a double boiler.
- Once chocolate is melted add ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract.
- Pour melted milk chocolate into a 9 inch pan lined with parchment paper.
- Put pan in the refrigerator to cool for about 30 minutes.
- Melt white chocolate using the same double boiler method as above.
- Once the white chocolate is fully melted, add ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract and mix well.
- Pour white chocolate over top the milk chocolate to create a layer.
- Sprinkle crushed candy canes and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
- Once the peppermint bark is completely hardened removed from the refrigerator and either break the bark apart with your hands to create a more rustic look or use a sharp knife to make clean cut squares.
- Store in an air tight container in a cool room or refrigerator for up to 1 month.Mel
