Although I love making mint dark chocolate bark, I found another awesome bark recipe perfect for the holidays. It's just as simple to make and a great treat for those who love chocolate, especially one infused with peppermint.
In Nestle Toll House's Semi-Sweet Morsels, Best-Loved Recipes (pg. 46), there's a recipe for Holiday Peppermint Bark that I guarantee you'll enjoy.
Holiday Peppermint Bark
2 cups (12-ounce package) Nestle Toll House Premier White Morsels
24 hard peppermint candies, unwrapped
Line baking sheet with wax paper
Microwave morsels in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on Medium-High (70%) power for 1 minute. Stir. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10 to 15 second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.
Place peppermint candies in heavy-duty resealable plastic food storage bag. Crush candies using rolling pin or other heavy object. While holding strainer over melted morsels, pour crushed candy into strainer. Shake to release all small candy pieces; reserve larger candy pieces. Stir morsel-peppermint mixture.
Spread mixture to desired thickness on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with reserved candy pieces; press in lightly. Let stand for about 1 hour until firm. Break into pieces. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
Makes 1 pound of candy.
If you don't have peppermint candies, use candy canes like I did.
Mix well. Add just the right amount of peppermint, depending on how much you like...
To speed up time, freeze it. It's quicker than chilling it in the fridge.
Break it into pieces, then wrap it up to take to a party or to the office.
The Nestle Toll House recipe for peppermint bark is the perfect combination of white chocolate and peppermint, one of the most loved and looked forward to treats during the holidays.
