Ingredients

  • 1 - 12- ounce bag semi-chocolate chips
  • 1 - 12- ounce bag White Chocolate Chips
  • One teaspoon Peppermint extract
  • 2 cups Peppermint Candies

Instructions

  • Chop White Chocolate Peppermint Hershey Kisses, Peppermint M & M’s, Andes Mints, Ghirardelli Peppermint Squares, Peppermints, or your favorite peppermint candies.  You will need two cups of your favorite candies.  I love White Chocolate Hershey Kisses on this bark.
  • 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.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.   Pour the melted chocolate on the parchment paper, spread the chocolate out.

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.

Peppermint Candies

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

Let stand about 1 hour or until cool and hardened.
