Peppermint Bark

Feeling festive with the holidays upon us next week, I decided to make peppermint bark with my daughter, Izzy! Not only is the process simple, but it’s also great for when you’d like to prepare a sweet something in advance to have at home, or take somewhere to share with others. Here’s how we made this minty treat, enjoy!

Instructions

  • Fill a medium sauce pot ¼ of the way with water.
  • Bring water to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer.
  • Place a glass bowl into the pot. The glass bowl should fit inside without resting on the bottom.
  • Add the chocolate chips to the glass bowl and melt, stirring with a spatula. Remove from heat once completely melted.
  • Pour melted chocolate on a baking sheet lined with parchment. The thickness should be about ¼-inch thick. You might need two baking sheets depending on how large yours are.
  • Sprinkle the candy cane pieces over the top of the chocolate, then sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Gently peel off the parchment and break into 2-inch pieces.
  • I like to store between layers of parchment paper in an air tight container in the fridge until ready to eat.
