How to Make Peppermint Bark
HOW TO MAKE PEPPERMINT BARK (Makes 15-20 pieces of bark)
1 cup milk chocolate
1½ cups white chocolate
3 drops peppermint oil
1) Prepare a cookie sheet by spreading plastic wrap on the bottom of the pan.
2) Melt the two chocolates (see instructions below) Add 2 -3 drops of peppermint flavoring to the milk chocolate. (Pour onto a spoon a small amount and then let drip from the spoon.)
3) Using one half of the cookie sheet, pour all the white chocolate and spread to make a rectangle about 6 inches by 10 inches. Drizzle the milk chocolate on top then tap the bark on the counter.
4) Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or 5 minutes in the freezer. When set, break into pieces with your hands.
5) Place in candy cups.
Variation – Sprinkle crushed candy cane on top before cooling.
Melting with a electric frying pan/water bath
Place chocolate wafers in small jars. Place jars in an electric frying pan with an inch and a half of water. Turn on frying pan to the lowest setting and then spoon the melted chocolate into the molds.
Melting using the microwave
Chocolate wafers can also be melted in the microwave, on the lowest setting for 30 seconds then in 10 second increments until the chocolate is melted. Be very careful with white chocolate because it burns very easily.
