"Ashley's Peppermint Bark"

mmm... peppermintbark! Nothing gets you more into the Christmas holidays then peppermint bark. I love chocolate and I love peppermints, so I had to learn to make it! There are so many different designs you can do with it and it still be soooo good! This is a must have at my house during the Christmas holidays. (picture coming soon)

  • 2 (12oz) pkg of Nestle white chocolate chip morsels
  • 6oz of Nestle milk chocolate morsels
  • ½ cup crushed peppermint candy
  • 1 ½ tbsp of peppermint extract
  • red food coloring

  • Melt white chocolate and milk chocolate morsels in two separate glass bowls in the microwave on 70% power in 20 second increments, stirring after each increments (about 60seconds).
  • After the white chocolate morsels have melted stir in peppermint extract and red food coloring.
  • Pour white chocolate mixture onto a cookie sheet layered with parchment or waxed paper, let it stand for 10 seconds. Sprinkle crushed peppermints onto white chocolate mixture.
  • Drizzle with a spoon, the milk chocolate in a fast left-right motion onto the white chocolate/peppermints. (If milk chocolate starts to thicken, microwave for 10 second increments until thinned)
  • Place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes or until firm. Remove from cookie sheet and break into pieces ( like peanut brittle.) Store in airtight container.
