Peppermint bark only needs a few ingredients. Packets of chocolate and candy canes; dark chocolate with white chocolate on top and sprinkled with crushed peppermint candy/candy cane. Dark chocolate or Milk Chocolate? Your call.
Once the chocolate has been melted, pour the chocolate on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and gently spread the chocolate with a rubber spatula.
Optional: crush 1 candy cane with a hammer or rolling pin to powder. Sprinkle it on top of the dark chocolate while it is still hot and melted.
3. While the dark chocolate is in the freezer or when the dark chocolate harden at room temperature, melt 1 packet of white chocolate. Pour it on top of the dark chocolate and spread evenly.
-Don't have a double boiler so how do I melt the chocolate? See Here!
-Double boiler substitution: place one small saucepan with water on the stove with medium heat until it produces steam. Please another saucepan (same size) on top of the 1st sauce pan. Pour the chocolate pieces in the 2nd saucepan and melt.
-Do not add water, even if it just a drop, will ruin the chocolate. It will seize, or turn it into a grainy mess. There is NO way to save seized chocolate
-Do not overheat. If over heated, it will be thick and lumpy. Overheated chocolate can sometimes be saved.
