Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark
Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark - One of the easiest holiday treats. Smooth, dark chocolate, creamy white chocolate studded with crushed candy canes!
- 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips I used 60% cacao bittersweet
- 2 teaspoons canola oil divided
- 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
- 2 teaspoons peppermint extract divided
- 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy
Place waxed paper in a baking sheet pan.
Add dark chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon canola oil to a medium glass microwave safe bowl. Heat in microwave for about 1 minute. If not melted, heat in 30-second increments until it is melted. Remove from microwave and stir until smooth. Add 1 teaspoon peppermint extract to melted dark chocolate and stir until well-combined.
Pour chocolate into the prepared sheet pan and place in the freezer until set, about 3 minutes.
Repeat the same process with the white chocolate chips. Once melted and smooth add the remaining 1 teaspoon peppermint extract and stir. Remove the sheet pan from freezer and spread white chocolate over dark chocolate.
Sprinkle crushed peppermint candies over white chocolate and return to the freezer until firm, about 3 minutes.
Remove from freezer. Break peppermint bark into pieces.
Store in an air-tight container.
If the peppermint bark is too cold it will separate when breaking into pieces.
