Peppermint Bark

Peppermint Bark
Yield: 2 lbs
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cool time: 2 hours

      It's the holiday season, and once again we are bombarded with the flavors of Christmas' past. Of those few acclaimed holiday essences one seems to be much more prominent than the others: peppermint. Instead of cringing at the idea of peppermint everything, we at RMR have decided to embrace the holidays this year and give the people what they want. Peppermint bark is one of those classic holiday treats that makes even the scroogiest of scrooges feel just a little Christmas spirit.

12 oz bitter sweet chocolate
18 oz white chocolate
3/4 cup crushed peppermint candy
1/2 tsp peppermint extract

1. If using block chocolate use a serrated knife to shave it into small pieces or use melt-able chips.
2. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and line with plastic wrap.
3. Set up a double boiler by adding two inches of water to a medium sauce pot, bring to a simmer over medium heat, and place a metal bowl on top of the pot.
4. Place half of the bittersweet chocolate into the metal bowl and melt it over the double boiler. Once melted remove the bowl from the simmering water and add the other half of the bitter sweet chocolate and the peppermint extract. Use a rubber spatula to stir in the chocolate pieces and use the residual heat to melt the chocolate.
5. Pour the bitter sweet chocolate into the baking dish and spread into an even layer with an offset spatula, allow to set for 10 minutes.
6. Clean the metal bowl and repeat the melting procedure with the white chocolate. Then pour the white chocolate over the bittersweet layer and spread out evenly, immediately sprinkle the peppermint candy pieces over the white chocolate.
7.Allow to set for a minimum of 2 hours. Remove the bark from the baking dish using the plastic wrap as a sling, Break the bark into pieces and serve.
