This year I made Peppermint Bark to share with my coworkers for the holidays!
Last year I made brownie covered Oreos, which were AMAZING… But I like to mix things up! 😉
I had planned on using this recipe that I pinned awhile back, but when I went to the grocery store, I discovered a whole lot of awesome-ness in these Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips!!!
Ingredients needed for each batch of peppermint bark:
1 – 12 oz bag of white chocolate chips
1- 12 oz bag peppermint crunch baking chips
(I had planned to use the mint flavoring but with the peppermint chips, you won’t need it!)
Long story short, you melt a bag of white chocolate chips with about half a bag of the peppermint chips in the microwave. This was my first try at melting white chocolate and at using the microwave to melt chocolate, but it worked out lovely!
Then stir in what was left of the peppermint chips (to add a little extra crunch).
Lay out some parchment paper on your baking sheet, then pour and spread the mixture onto the sheet.
Pop into the fridge for 45 minutes to an hour.
The chocolate will harden and even start peeling up from the parchment paper.
Break into pieces, package and share! Or not… again, we don’t judge in the sharing of treats department!
I used those handy little Ziploc Christmas bags and just wrote Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays from Kassi on the tag in black marker.
I stuck them in a bowl and took them to work to pass out!
If you need a quick treat for anything, it really didn’t take much time at all.
Just the wait while in the fridge!
Happy Tasty Tuesday lovelies!!!
