Peppermint Bark

I’ve made a lot of easy recipes in my life, but let me tell you, this is the easiest!  And since a tiny bag of peppermint bark is selling for $12 at the store, it’s definitely worth it!  JoyofBaking has an easy and tasty recipe with a little cooking video.  I’ll sum it up though, since the video is 10 minutes long and its only three steps.

You need…

- Dark Chocolate (<70% cocoa, higher is too bitter)

- White Chocolate (check the back and make sure it says cocoa butter – not olive oil or some other substitute)

- Candy canes

Put the candy canes in a bag (or your food processor) and break them up.

Melt your dark chocolate in the microwave or on the stove.  Add 1 tsp of tasteless oil (keeps the chocolate shiny).  Pour the dark chocolate into your pan. Laying down aluminum foil makes it easier to get the chocolate out at the end (forgot that step though!).  Put your pan + chocolate in the fridge until hard (30+ mins).

Repeat the same steps for the white chocolate, but BEFORE you put it in the fridge, sprinkle the peppermint crumbles on top.

After it’s completely hard, break or cut into pieces and enjoy!
