The good news about Peppermint Bark is....it's delicious! The bad news about Peppermint Bark is, that it's usually kinda expensive. But wait, I've got more good news about Peppermint Bark! It's very easy to make! It only has 4 ingredients, and requires no baking. Try this foolproof recipe and you will be munching away before you know it! (Quick, go out and buy some candy canes NOW, while they are on sale!)
Making and eating Peppermint Bark makes me feel like I am 5 years old again, playing Candyland. (C'mon, you know you remember loving that game.....)
2 8oz pkgs of semi sweet chocolate
1 8oz pkg white chocolate
1.5 tablespoons pure peppermint extract
candy canes, crushed
Melt the semi sweet chocolate, and spread evenly on a cookie sheet. I use baking parchment too, to prevent sticking. Plus it makes clean up super easy.
Suddenly... you'll find that you have been transported to Candyland, my dear Foodie Friend! No doubt you will love tasting how the deep chocolate flavor mixes so well with the aromatic peppermint. Plus you never even broke a sweat, 'cause it was so easy to make! Its a perfect gift, and has an excellent shelf life if kept in a sealed container. Enjoy!
