- Choclate Chips
- Choclate Button
- Peppermint Candies
You’re just gonna need some white chocolate chips or chocolate button you’re going to need some peppermint candies this is what they look like they come individually wrapped like this and all I did was crush them in a little ziploc bag with a rolling pin until they’re kind of fine crumbs kind of big crumbs you want to come you know a little bit of in-between and that’s it that’s simple now I know that these peppermint candies are not just in the US because I remember being in Italy and my mother eating these like they were going out of style.
You can get these anywhere you can use crushed up candy canes if, you want you can use any hard peppermint candy you like so we’ve got that done so let’s just go ahead and melt the chocolate. I’m going to put my chocolate buttons in a microwave-safe dish and I’m going to pop this into the microwave for about a minute or until it’s fully melted. I’m going to put it in for a minute mix it and then put it in for a couple more seconds if it’s not totally melted and then I’ll show you the next step that’s absolutely perfect so now actually just going to put this into a larger bowl because I don’t want to make a mess anywhere I love white chocolate by the way amazing I’m going to take a little bit of these crushed peppermint candies just crush them a bit more in my hand another a whole lot.
I don’t want to put a whole lot in there just want to put just a few and then just mix it that looks perfect so now I’m just going to put I’m going to put this on a paper lined baking sheet just like so get it all out of there spread this out till however thick you like your bark to be I don’t like it to be too too thick only because white chocolate as we all know is just so so sweet that a little can go a long way and I want it to be just a nice little treat I don’t want it to be like whoa sweet white chocolate too way too much so that’s perfect for me I’m going to take some of these remaining candies and just sprinkle these all over the top because you want it to look like it’s peppermint bark so just make this for this much or as little as you want that looks great now I’m going to leave this on my table for around an hour or so or until it’s completely completely set.
I’ll show you what it looks like when it’s done my peppermint bark has beautifully set see if I lift it and peel that off perfect so you can choose to cut this in how big small sizes whatever you prefer I just going to wing it and do some big some smalls and like I said you can totally do whatever you want I know that some people like to do it with cookie cutters and they’ll get specific shapes and sizes and hey that’s what you want to do more power to you but remember this smells so good too but this is going to be something that everyone loves they always geared toward smell so minty great now you can serve it.
