Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

If the peppermint bark is too cold it will separate when breaking into pieces.
