Peppermint Bark Candy Recipe


INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Line an 8x8 square baking pan with parchment paper. Spray the bottom of the pan with cooking spray first to help the parchment paper stick and stay down. Be sure to use enough parchment so some hangs over the sides for easy handling.
  2. Break 6 ounces of semi-sweet baking chocolate into pieces and place in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power for 1 minute. Stir and then microwave again, on 50% power, for 30 seconds and stir until smooth. Microwave again, on 50% power, for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Repeat the process as needed until the chocolate is smooth. Note: Microwave oven power varies, so you may need to keep microwaving for 30 second intervals until the chocolate is smooth. Be careful not to scorch the chocolate or it will seize up and never melt properly.
  3. Pour the melted chocolate into the prepared pan and gently spread evenly across the bottom of the pan. Allow to sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes until the chocolate begins to set. The surface of the chocolate will begin to look dry and satiny, but it will still be a little soft.
  4. Once the semi-sweet chocolate is ready, break 6 ounces of white baking chocolate into pieces and place in a microwave safe bowl. White chocolate is very sensitive, and melts much quicker, so we need to be more careful. Microwave on 50% power for 30 seconds. Stir and then microwave again, on 50% power, for 30 seconds and stir. Microwave again, on 50% power, for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Repeat the process as needed until the chocolate is smooth. Be very careful not to scorch the white chocolate or it will seize and never melt properly.
  5. Pour the white chocolate over the semi-sweet chocolate and carefully spread the white chocolate to cover the semi-sweet. Try not to mix the two chocolates.
  6. Sprinkle crushed mints over top of the white chocolate to cover and refrigerate until the chocolate hardens enough to cut into pieces. About 15-30 minutes. Cut into squares with a chef's knife and enjoy!
