Share-A-Chef

Happy Hump Day Everyone! This past weekend I went to the in-laws and we created homemade ornaments for the holidays. We also made some Peppermint Bark, which was delicious by the way and so easy to make! So this week I went searching for recipes that I thought you would enjoy! I stumbled across Bright, Bold, and Beautiful, a blog created by Laura Trevey, a maker, a watercolor artist, a content creator and a Doer. Her blog consists of DIY, Home Decor, and Design Inspiration. I hope you enjoy her recipe and I would love to hear if you create it and have it during your holiday celebrations! 

Happy Holiday

Peppermint Bark

Ingredients:
  • 12 ounces white chocolate
  • 12 ounces dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy 
Instructions:
  • Line a 9×12 pan with parchment paper.
  • Melt the dark chocolate microwave 20 seconds stir and repeat until you have a smooth consistency.
  • Pour the melted dark chocolate on the parchment paper, spread the chocolate out until it is about 1/3″ thick.
  • Melt the white chocolate, using the steps above.
  • After the chocolate is smooth, pour it on top of the dark chocolate – trying to make the layers the same thickness. (it’s best to do this step while the white chocolate is still very soft — I’ve had them separate when I broke them into pieces, I think the layers “stick” together better if the white chocolate has not hardened).
  • Place the pepermints into a ziplock bag and crush the mints. While the white chocolate is still melted sprinkle on top.
  • Let the chocolates harden in the refrigerator for 2 hours, then break the candy into pieces. This needs to be stored in the refrgerator if you live in a warm/humid climate.
