Peppermint Bark Recipe

Peppermint Bark

Every Decemeber, I get excited about one thing in particular – Peppermint Bark! I usually buy Peppermint Bark from the store, but this year I wanted to make my own so that I could have more of it! This Peppermint Bark recipe is easy to make and doesn’t require too many ingredients!

Peppermint Bark Recipe

What you’ll need:

  • 1 bag of milk chocolate chips
  • 1 bag of white chocolate chips
  • 1 bag of crushed peppermint
  • Peppermint Extract

Peppermint Bark

First, melt the milk chocolate chips in a double boiler. Add 1 tsp. of Peppermint Extract into the mixture and stir well.  (I always melt my chocolate on the stove top to prevent it from burning by placing the chocolate chips in a bowl and placing it over a pot of boiling water, stirring occasionally.) A Double Boiler is only Christmas wish list this year! For now, this works for me.

Once the chocolate is melted, pour into an 8X8 pan (or a pan slightly bigger for thinner Peppermint Bark) and spread evenly. Let the chocolate cool. I place mine in the refrigerator until it hardens.

Melt the white chocolate chips well and stir occasionally. Add 1 tsp. of peppermint extract and stir well. Pour the melted white chocolate on top of the milk chocolate and spread evenly on top. Then, sprinkle with crushed peppermint.

    I was excited to make this – I used ghirardelli dark chocolate chips and white choc chips – the white chips seized the first time around so I tried again but melted them in the microwave. The result looked great and tasted good, but would not bond together. I even tried setting it in a 200 degree oven for bit in hopes it would stick, but no luck. :( Maybe I should have used Hersheys!!
