Tis the season… for treats galore! I have a sweet tooth pretty much all year round, but it gets extra sweat during the holiday season. While I love all of the cookies, cakes, candies, etc…. one of my favorite treats to indulge in is peppermint bark – something about it just reminds me of the holidays! I recently made this recipe from My Kitchen Craze blog, and it was so good that I just had to share it with you all today. Drew & I may or may not have eaten the whole batch in one day – we couldn’t resist! The best part of this recipe is that it only takes a few ingredients and can be made in 3 easy steps!
You Will Need:
Before you start… Lightly grease a 9×9 inch pan Line it with waxed paper; set aside.
STEP ONE: Melt the Milk Chocolate
Place the milk (or semi-sweet) chocolate and 1 teaspoon of the canola oil in a medium glass bowl. Microwave on 50% power for 1 minute. Stir & continue microwaving at 50% until melted, about 3 minutes. Once the chocolate is melted, stir in 1/4 teaspoon of the peppermint extract.
Pour the melted chocolate on the prepared pan. Spread evenly over the bottom of the pan. Refrigerate until completely hardened, about 1 hour.
STEP TWO: Crush your Peppermint Candies
While the chocolate is in the fridge setting, now is a perfect time to crush your peppermint candies – I put mine in a ziploc bag to make it nice and easy!
STEP THREE: Melt the White Chocolate
Place the white chocolate and remaining 1 teaspoon canola oil in the same medium glass bowl. Microwave exactly the same way you did the semi-sweet chocolate, making sure not to over microwave. Make sure to stir and ladle down the sides every minute.
Once the chocolate is melted, stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract.
Pour the white chocolate directly over the semisweet chocolate layer; spread evenly. Sprinkle the crushed candy over the top and gently press in.
Refrigerate until completely hardened.
Remove from pan and break into small pieces.
ENJOY! And try not to eat it all at once like we did 🙂
