This year as a Christmas gift to my co-workers, I decided to make peppermint bark. I saw the cutest take on it over at Baked by Rachel:
10oz bag milk or dark chocolate chips
10oz white chocolate chips
1/2 tsp peppermint extract, divided
crushed candy canes or peppermint candies.
In a small to medium sized bowl add milk or dark chocolate. Melt in the microwave in 30 second intervals at 50% power. Stir well after each 30 seconds. When fully melted, add 1/4 tsp peppermint extract. Stir well.
Using a small cookie scoop or spoon, divide chocolate among mold cavities. Sprinkle with crushed candies. Chill for at least 30 minutes or until chocolate has set.
Repeat process with white chocolate. Remove from molds after fully hardened. Store in the fridge.
Here is how they turned out:
