It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!

And by that I mean it’s when calories don’t count and every day is guilt-free on how many cookies, fudges and pieces of White Chocolate Peppermint Bark are consumed.

That’s right!!! It’s Christmas time!! It’s when every food blogger online looses their mind  because it’s primarily our favorite time to create new recipes to share with the world. So many amazing flavors to work with, so many family gatherings to plan for and so many creative combinations to play with.

It’s also a lot of work and you can easily bite off more than you can chew when it comes to ideas, failed recipes and over the top successful dishes.  For example, I have made one particular recipe FOUR times and have yet to work out all the kinks of the process. Four times!!! My husband is calling it The Million Dollar Recipe because that’s how many trips to my supermarket I have made in my attempt to bring this particular recipe to life.  But still I try….

Then you have this recipe for White Chocolate Peppermint Bark and it couldn’t be more perfect, more easy to make.  Food is funny like that sometimes!

HOW DO I MAKE PEPPERMINT BARK?

Making White Chocolate Peppermint Bark is so easy that you can pull this together in just a few minutes and it is the perfect compliment to this time of year.  Start by lining a 9×9 baking pan with parchment paper and set aside. Then divide white chocolate evenly into two bowls and add dark chocolate to its own bowl.  Add 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable oil to each bowl and microwave the first bowl of white chocolate for 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after each 30 second burst until chocolate is smooth and melted.  Add in 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract and stir to combine. Pour chocolate into bottom of baking pan and spread evenly and place in freezer. Microwave the bowl of dark chocolate chocolate for 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after each 30 second burst until chocolate is smooth and melted. Add in espresso powder and stir to combine. Remove pan from freezer and pour chocolate on top of first layer, spread evenly and place back in freezer. Microwave the second bowl of white chocolate for 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after each 30 second burst until chocolate is smooth and melted. Add in 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract and stir to combine. Remove pan from freezer and pour white chocolate on top of dark chocolate layer, spread evenly and sprinkle with crushed candy cane pieces and festive sprinkles. Move pan to chill in refrigerator until completely hardened.  Once hardened, break into pieces and share. Peppermint Bark should be stored in airtight container in refrigerator

This White Chocolate Peppermint Bark is great for gift giving, the dessert / sweets table at holiday parties and especially great for YOU and YOUR TUMMY!

 

Now, this White Chocolate Peppermint Bark recipe was written to create a THICK candy bark and I realize that not everyone like that, many prefer a thin chocolate peppermint bark.  No worries, this recipe is easily modified. Simply cut the white and dark chocolate proportions down and the bark will not be so thick.  I have included instructions below for both.

So enjoy this time of year with your family and friends and give thanks for all that we have been blessed with… including chocolate peppermint bark and stretchy yoga pants.
