Peppermint Bark

>> Sunday, December 6, 2009

1 bag dark chocolate chips
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 bag white chocolate chips
8 candy canes, crushed

Line a cookie sheet with a silpat sheet or parchment paper. In a glass bowl, combine dark chocolate chips and peppermint extract. In the microwave, cook them in increments of 20 seconds, stirring after each time, until the chips are melted. Using a spatula, spread the chocolate onto the cookie sheet to create a large, thin sheet. Cool in the refrigerator so the chocolate will harden.

After the dark chocolate layer has set up, heat the white chocolate chips in the same manner as the dark. Spread it over the dark chocolate to create a double-layered peppermint bark. While the white chocolate is still melted, quickly sprinkle the crushed candy canes over the white chocolate layer and press them in slightly to make sure they adhere. Cool in the refrigerate. When it has hardened, break into pieces.
