White Chocolate Peppermint Bark

Holiday treat time is here – officially! If you need to make a treat to bring to work, a party or just want something yummy, I have a great idea: White Chocolate Peppermint Bark. I made it for work the other day and it was so easy and so yummy. It was gobbled up right away. I will definitely make it again for a party or get together.

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients/tools:

  • White Chocolate – I used the melting disks. Make sure they are good quality or they won’t melt well. I used about 1.5 pounds.
  • Candy canes – I grabbed a couple of handfuls from the bulk bin at the grocery store.
  • Peppermint essential oil – a couple of drops.
  • Double-boiler – if you don’t have one, use a pot with metal mixing bowl
  • Large baking sheet
  • Parchment paper

Directions:

  1. Smash the candy canes into tiny pieces. They are going to be scattered across the top of the chocolate so you want them to be small enough to eat easily.
  2. Heat the water to boiling and put the mixing bowl on top of the water.
  3. Put the chocolate disks in the bowl and stir constantly with a spatula. I use a spatula so I can easily get the chocolate off the sides of the bowl.
  4. Once the chocolate is melted, add a couple of drops of peppermint essential oil and taste. Start off slow and add if necessary. You don’t want the peppermint to be overpowering.
  5. Spread the chocolate over the parchment paper with a spatula. Make sure it is evenly distributed.
  6. While the chocolate is still warm, sprinkle the crushed candy canes on top.
  7. Leave to harden. I let mine harden on the counter over night, but you could put it in the fridge to harden quicker.
  8. Once hardened, break into pieces.
  9. Enjoy and receive compliments on how delicious your treat is.

It is that easy! The hardest thing is waiting for the chocolate to harden so that you can have a sample.
