Peppermint Bark

Peppermint Bark

I can’t believe the holiday season is almost over – which considering I decorated on Halloween…you’d think I’d gotten my share of festivities in- but no

If you’ve been watching my instagram stories the past month you’ve probably seen that I’ve been baking up a damn STORM¬†

I’ve gotten into the tradition of making epic cookie/baked good boxes for my team out here in LA & every year the list of recipients seems to get longer and longer & my overachieving nature kicks in to higher and higher gear

Because everyone seems to be enjoying them over on instagram- I thought I’d post the full recipes on here so you guys have them to refer to!

Peppermint bark has been a staple in my holiday treat rotation for YEARS – I blame William Sonoma for getting me addicted as a kid (before the allergies) & instead of shelling out the money for a tin of this, I stared making it from scratch and boy is it SO DAMN EASY!

4 ingredients, a little patience & you’ve got bark baby!

So if you’re in desperate need for some last minute gifts, or something to bring to a holiday party- this is it!


INGREDIENTS

12 oz white chocolate

12 oz dark or semi sweet chocolate

6 teaspoons coconut

 oil or canola oil

1 teaspoon peppermint extract

6-7 crushed candy canes

 


 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Prepare a 9 x 11 baking sheet with tinfoil & set aside
  • Break up your white chocolate and put it into 2 separate bowls with 6 oz in each
  • Add 2 teaspoons of oil into bowl & either melt over a double boiler or microwave in 20 second bursts stirring in between until fully melted
  • Once fully melted stir in 1/2 teaspoon of the peppermint extract until combined
  • Carefully pour white chocolate onto lined baking sheet & smooth out to an even thickness with a spatula
  • Put into fridge to set
  • In another bowl break up your dark chocolate with 2 teaspoons of the oil & melt in the microwave or double boiler
  • Once the white chocolate has hardened, pour the melted dark chocolate on top, working quickly so not to melt them together- smooth an even layer and set into fridge again
  • Melt the remaining white chocolate with the rest of the oil & once smooth add in the rest of the peppermint extract
  • Once previous two layers have set- pour final white chocolate layer on top of both, smoothing it out
  • While the top layer is still wet & tacky, sprinkle your crushed candy canes on top- covering as much as you can & pressing into the chocolate to make sure it adheres
  • Place into the fridge for 12-24 hours to fully set & harden
  • Break it up & enjoy!
