The holiday season is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than with a delightful combination of delectable treats and festive scents? We’re thrilled to introduce our new Candy Cane Crunch Artisan Wax Melts, a fragrant addition to your home that will transport you to a winter wonderland.
To complement this seasonal delight, we’ve crafted a mouthwatering Peppermint Bark recipe that is sure to tickle your taste buds and enhance the cozy ambiance of your space.
- 12 ounces high-quality dark chocolate, chopped
- 12 ounces high-quality white chocolate, chopped
- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 1/2 cup crushed candy canes
- 1/4 cup finely chopped pistachios (optional)
- Red and green sprinkles for decoration (optional)
1. Prepare Your Workspace: Before you begin, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This will make it easier to remove the peppermint bark once it has set.
2. Melt the Dark Chocolate: In a heatproof bowl, melt the dark chocolate using a double boiler or in the microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring in between. Once fully melted, add half of the peppermint extract (1/2 teaspoon) and stir until well combined.
3. Pour and Spread: Pour the melted dark chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet, spreading it into an even layer with a spatula.
4. Chill: Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes, or until the dark chocolate has set.
5. Melt the White Chocolate: Similarly, melt the white chocolate using the same method. Once melted, stir in the remaining half of the peppermint extract (1/2 teaspoon).
6. Layer the White Chocolate: Take the baking sheet out of the refrigerator and carefully spread the melted white chocolate over the dark chocolate layer.
7. Add Toppings: While the white chocolate is still soft, sprinkle crushed candy canes and chopped pistachios on top. For an extra festive touch, add red and green sprinkles.
8. Chill Again: Return the baking sheet to the refrigerator and let the peppermint bark set completely. This usually takes about 1-2 hours.
9. Break Into Pieces: Once fully set, remove the peppermint bark from the refrigerator and break it into bite-sized pieces.
