Christmas, New Year’s or even a Valentine’s Party Treats

This is a great recipe to use up your leftover peppermint candy from the holidays.  If you make Peppermint Bark before the holidays, it would make fantastic gifts for your neighbors and friends.  It would also be perfect to take to a Christmas, New Year’s or even a Valentine’s Party.

STEP 1: Melt Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips or Dark Chocolate

  • Place the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips in a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Microwave the chocolate for one minute and stir well until smooth.  If you need more time, only microwave 10 to 15 seconds at a time and stir until all the chocolate is melted.

STEP 2: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Pour the melted chocolate on the parchment paper, spread the chocolate out.  I did not go all the way to the edge of the baking sheet.  My rectangle was closer to a 9 x 13.

STEP 3: White Chocolate Layer

Microwave the white chocolate for one minute and stir well until smooth.  If you need more time, only microwave 10 to 15 seconds at a time and stir until all the chocolate is melted.  Stir until completely melted.  Once the chocolate is completely melted, stir in the peppermint extract.

Drizzle the melted white chocolate on top of the semi-sweet chocolate.

STEP 4: Peppermint Candies

Immediate after adding the white chocolate, cover the chocolate with 2 cups chopped peppermint candies.  Press them down into the chocolate gently.

Let stand about 1 hour or until cool and hardened.

        I love peppermint bark and I usually make it just with white chocolate. But now I want to try to make it the way you did here with Ghiradelli milk chocolate, too. And I agree this is a good one to bring us right through Valentine’s Day now, as well. Also want to wish you a very, Happy 2018 coming up!! 🙂
