Peppermint Bark

The holiday season is here!!! I love it so much. To start off the baking season I wanted to do something simple but super delicious! Peppermint bark is so good and beautiful, the perfect thing to bring to your holiday gatherings. AND people will be like “you made this?” Yes, yes I did 😉 So let’s go make some bark!

What you will need:

8 inch square pan lined with foil

6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
Crushed candy canes (or other peppermint candy)

Melt the chocolate and vegetable oil in a large glass or stainless steel bowl over a pot of simmering water. Stir constantly. Pour the melted chocolate into the prepared pan and smooth evenly with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle the crushed peppermint candy evenly over the chocolate. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Break into pieces and enjoy!

Store covered in the refrigerator for several days.

Tip: You can also add a layer of white chocolate. Just pour 6 ounces of melted white chocolate on top of the hardened chocolate layer and add the crushed peppermint to the white chocolate.
