Peppermint Bark

My neighbor’s 10-year-old daughter has gone wild with the baking this year. She brought a bag of peppermint bark for her teacher this morning and I’d thought I’d share her tasty success.

You Will Need:
8 oz semisweet chocolate, broken into pieces
8 oz white chocolate, broken into pieces
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
25 peppermint candies, crushed

Instructions:

  1. Lightly grease pan and line with waxed paper, smoothing out wrinkles; set aside.
  2. Place the semisweet chocolate in a double boiler over just barely simmering water.
  3. Stir frequently and scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching.
  4. When chocolate is melted, stir in 1/4 tsp peppermint extract.
  5. Pour the melted chocolate into the prepared pan, and spread evenly over the bottom.
  6. Sprinkle half of the crushed peppermints over the chocolate layer.
  7. Refrigerate until completely hardened.
  8. Repeat steps 2-4 with white chocolate.
  9. Pour the white chocolate over the semisweet chocolate layer; spread evenly.
  10. Sprinkle the remaining crushed candy over the top and gently press in.
  11. Refrigerate until completely hardened.
  12. Remove from pan; break into small pieces to serve.
