Do you love peppermint bark?
We do, so last year I set out to make some and read hundreds of recipes from the very simple to very complex--making candy can be crazy hard if you are technical and stuff.
Lucky for us I can't be bothered with technical so I decided to just wing it.
You know what,
Not only is it Yummy but it is very easy and makes a great gift.
Here is what you will need:
Pan lined with foil
1 pound semi sweet chocolate
1 pound white chocolate
1 bag peppermint candy
Line your pan with foil, told you it was easy.
Grab a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
(any chocolate chips left over from friends weddings will work great)
Pour Chocolate into your makeshift double boiler (glass bowl over boiling water in a pan).
melt and stir
melt and stir
when the chocolate is completely melted pour onto foil lined pan smooth out and place in freezer
unwrap peppermint candies and place in zip top bag
then have some fun crushing them
this part is a frustration reducer
Ahhh, I feel better already
Grab your white chocolate,
put it into your double broiler
stir and melt
stir and melt.
But here is the HARD part
YOU MUST WAIT!!!
See if you pour the melted white chocolate onto the frozen dark chocolate then you will have a big mess, because the white chocolate will melt the dark chocolate and they will mix together and lets just say it is not pretty
So find your patience and wait at least 10 minutes.
Once the white chocolate is cool to the touch pour it onto the dark chocolate and smooth,
immediately add the crushed peppermint candies.
Stick it back into the freezer for 30 minutes
remove from the freeze
remove from the pan and cut into pieces
Place into cute dish and there you have it Yummy peppermint bark.
