OH MY GOODNESS! Can it be Christmas without some Double Chocolate Peppermint Bark?
So easy to make, and so much better than anything you can buy! Superior quality chocolate - both white and dark chocolate - combine to create the perfect "snap" when you break or bite into it.
And I'll let you in on a little secret...a chunk of this Double Chocolate Peppermint Bark dropped into a cup of steaming hot chocolate melts into a silky, creamy and pepperminty treat that you have just got to experience!
Many peppermint bark recipes call for simply melting the chocolate and slathering them together - but you won't have the snap or shiny bark that you'll have when you take the time to temper the chocolate first, which really just involves a few extra minutes during preparation. Easy peasy!
Your peppermint candy topping will also look professional if you strain it through a small mesh strainer before sprinkling the pieces on top of your Peppermint Bark - this keeps the "powder" off of this beautiful treat!
If you prefer your Peppermint Bark on the softer side, you can skip the tempering - but it is just a little something that takes this fabulous candy over the top!
Hope that you enjoy this holiday treat as much as we do!
