Gift Idea: Homemade Peppermint Chocolate Bark

This post brought to you by: Gygi

…………………….

Ever since we saw Mel’s yummy Chocolate Bark over at You Are My Fave last year we’ve been wanting to make our own. But since it was our first try we decided to stick to the classic Peppermint version.

It’s soooo easy and yummy … in fact I’m nibbling on it now. :)

All you need is: Milk Chocolate, White Chocolate, Peppermint Flavoring, Peppermint sticks, foil, ziplock bag and a baking tray.

(We used: this milk chocolate this white chocolate, this peppermint flavoring, and these peppermint sticks.)

How To: First, line baking tray completely with foil. Then place peppermint sticks in a ziplock bag and crush by beating with rolling pin.

Next, melt milk chocolate in microwave stirring every 30 seconds about 1 1/2 minutes total, then spread chocolate evenly covering whole pan. Place in fridge for 15 – 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt white chocolate the same way but note it melts in slightly less time. Then add peppermint flavoring to taste, about 2-3 drops. Spread white chocolate over hardened milk chocolate, and immediately sprinkle crushed peppermint sticks on top.

Once set, cut or break into triangle pieces and package. We used THESE adorable boxes (lined with parchment paper), and wrapped in our favorite twine found HERE.

We really do love Gygi for our holiday baking. Seriously, what’s better than finding all you need in one place!?

    Love those boxes and twine – I wish we could get them for that price over here! Shops that sell that kind of stuff in the UK are a rip-off so I am putting the peppermint bark I make this year in glass kilner jars for gifts. Keep up the fab blog girls! x
