Double layer peppermint bark

Yesterday, David and I went to my co-worker’s birthday party. I made this to give to him. Some might consider it a bit out of season, but I think it is so good it deserves to be eaten year-round.

Ingredients

  • One 12 oz. bag of dark chocolate chips
  • One 12 oz. bag of white chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 5 candy canes (or 5 ounces of round peppermint hard candies*)

*Since it’s no longer December, I couldn’t find candy canes. I bought a 16oz bag of Peppermint Starlites (round peppermint hard candies) and used approximately half the bag. I had a lot left over, so I’d recommend using approximately 1/3 of the bag, or 5 ounces. (If you can find candy canes, they are easier to crush and the colors look a bit nicer.)

Directions

1) Place candy canes or peppermint candies in a large ziploc bag. Using a rolling pin, crush up the candy into small pieces.

2) Melt the dark chocolate chips according to the instructions on the bag. I use the double boiler method, but since I don’t have a double boiler, I put a small put on top of a larger one.

3) When chips are thoroughly melted, stir in 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract.

4) Spread melted chocolate onto a wax paper-lined cookie sheet (I used a 9″x13″ sheet, but I don’t think it’s too important).

5) Sprinkle the peppermint candy over the top of the chocolate. Press down on the candy, especially the larger pieces, so that they stick in the chocolate. (You should use about 1/2 of the candy, you’ll use the other half after the next layer.)

6) Place the cookie sheet into the freezer for 5-10 minutes, or until completely hardened.

7) Melt the white chocolate chips, stir in 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract.

8) Spread the melted white chocolate on top of the hardened dark chocolate. More quickly so it doesn’t harden. Sprinkle the rest of the peppermint candy on top, pushing in so it sticks.

9) Put in the freezer for 10 minutes, or until completley hardened. Then break apart!

    Follow this simple directions and you will be amazed how good
    this pizza recipe really is. Place sliced tomatoes and Arugula on top of the Mozzarella.
    Lay the dough on the tray or baking sheet, then
    dimple the dough until it’s a thick, flattened circle.

    ” Pizza was called (and is still called) tomato pie and pizza pie in certain parts of the States. You can often buy these at home improvement stores, in the outdoor grilling sections. The other example of a place where you can get your own pizza coupons is the pizza hut.

    Sprinkle the top with Italian seasonings for garnish and additional flavor.
    Once the consistency is there, I knead for about a minute.
