Well, I went a little crazy with the peppermint and made some Salted Double Peppermint Bark, too!
Salt and chocolate is my new favorite sweet combination … and I don’t even like chocolate. I especially don’t like white chocolate, which is why I added the peppermint extract to it and it gave it a nice little kick!
This treat would be a great homemade holiday present or fun holiday party hostess gift. Or you could just make it for yourself!
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 2 tsp vegetable oil
- 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
- 6-8 peppermint candy canes, crushed (about 1/2 cup)
- coarse ground salt or salt flakes
Melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 tsp vegetable oil in a bowl using a double-boiler (or microwave) and pour into a tinfoil-lined 8-inch square baking pan.
Repeat the process for the white chocolate, but also add 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract (or 1 tsp if you’re crazy like me). Wait a bit for it to cool before pouring the melted white chocolate over the milk chocolate or you’ll end up smearing the two layers – especially if you didn’t wait until the milk chocolate was hardened in Step 2.
