Classic Double Chocolate Peppermint Bark

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups dark or semi-sweet chocolate pieces
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips or pieces
  • 1 cup crushed peppermint candy or candy canes

Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Line a small rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper covering the rim.
  2. Bring water in base of double boiler to a boil. Place dark or semi-sweet chocolate in top pot, heat and stir with wooden spoon or rubber spatula until melted and smooth about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour melted chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet and spread out into an even layer. Tap baking sheet on the counter to help even the layer. Set aside.
  4. Wash and clean double boiler.
  5. Bring water in base of double boiler to a boil. Place white chocolate in top pot, heat and stir with wooden spoon or rubber spatula until melted and smooth about 5 minutes.
  6. While the white chocolate is melting place chocolate filled baking sheet in the refrigerator for 3-5 minutes to set softly but not completely. (If it hardens completely the two layers may separate.)
  7. Add peppermint candy crumbs to the white chocolate and stir to combine completely.
  8. Pour mixture on top of semi hardened chocolate on baking sheet and spread out quickly into an even layer.
  9. Refrigerate until set, about an hour.
  10. Remove bark to a cutting board, place point of sharp knife into bark, apply a little pressure and twist your wrist to break apart. Pieces should be irregular and about 1-1/2 inch in size.
  11. Enjoy!
