Another Christmas treat my mother-in-law and I made was Peppermint Bark. We both agreed that we really like this Peppermint bark because the peppermint taste was not too strong, just the right amount!!!!
Ingredients: 1 lb. dark or semisweet chocolate 1 lb. white chocolate 1 tsp. peppermint extract 4 candy canes, crushed or chopped
Directions: 1. Line one 9x13 baking dish with wax paper.
2. If using one double boiler, heat dark chocolate until just melted, them place in small heaps in lined baking dish. If using two double boilers, heat white chocolate and peppermint extract together until just melted. Place white chocolate mixture and dark chocolate in baking dish, alternating large spoonfuls for a checkerboard effect. If you do not want to swirl the chocolate, spread the dark chocolate out in the baking dish, let cool slightly, then carefully layer white chocolate on top.
Or using the microwave follow directions on the package.
3. Using an offset or other small spatula, swirl chocolates together until you have the look you want.
4. Sprinkle candy cane on top of swirled chocolate. 5. Let cool at room temperature. Chop into pieces when completely cooled.
