I LOVE Peppermint Bark and it's so easy to make yourself! You can make a lot more yourself than you can buy it too. Saving money.... umm... YES PLEASE!
You Will Need:
* White Chocolate
* Milk OR dark chocolate (whichever you prefer)
* Peppermint candy ( I used candy canes)
*Cookie Sheet Pan
Melt your chocolate either in a microwave safe bowl OR in a double boiler pot.
I don't have a specific amount. I just eyeballed it to what I thought I would want.
POur your melted chocolate onto you wax paper lined cookie sheet pan and spread it to the thickness you want. It's usually about 1/4".
Sit it in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
Double bag your peppermints or candy canes in a Ziploc. Crush them with a rolling pin to the size you like.
Separate your larger chunks from the peppermint "dust".
Melt you white chocolate and mix in some of your peppermint "dust".
Remove your hardened chocolate from the fridge and pour your white chocolate on top of it. Spread it around until the chocolate underneath is covered. This is also usually around 1/4" or so thick.
Sprinkle your larger peppermint chunks on top and sit it in the fridge for another 20 minutes.
After it's hardened, break it up into pieces and wala... you're done!
