how to make peppermint bark recipe
I am always surprised to see how much stores charge to make certain snacks. Some are very easy to make, like this peppermint bark. My peppermint bark recipe takes just 2 ingredients (well ok, 3). And most of the making time is time to allow it to set up.
This has become a recipe that my daughter has me make to give to her friends for Christmas gifts. And they love it!
Perfect for when the kiddos say mom I signed you up to bring a dish for school. Or the hubby says he needs to bring a dish into work.
As long as you have white chocolate and candy canes, you are ready to begin making this yummy treat!
2 cups white chocolate discs
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup crushed peppermint sticks
Take 1 huge candy cane (or several regular size candy canes) and place in a plastic back and beat them with a hammer or mallet.
In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the chocolate for 2 minutes. You will want to stir after 1 minute and check every 30 seconds after that until the discs are melted.
Add the crushed peppermint and mix thoroughly.
Pour the mix onto the silicone mat and spread out about 1/4″ thick.
Once spread out, allow to cool completely
Break into small pieces. Place in decorative containers or bags for gifts or serve on a platter.
