Candy Cane Bark

Recipe for Candy Cane Bark
Sam Jones/Quinn Brein


10 candy canes
12 ounces dark chocolate chips, melted
1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
8 ounces white chocolate chips, melted


Line a 12x16-inch baking sheet with parchment paper.

Put candy canes in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin or mallet.

In a bowl, combine dark chocolate with peppermint extract, and spread mixture evenly onto prepared baking sheet. Place in refrigerator to harden the candy quickly.

Once dark chocolate has hardened, spread melted white chocolate evenly over the top of the dark chocolate and quickly sprinkle crushed candy canes over the white chocolate. Refrigerate again to harden.

Break bark into pieces and store in an airtight container in a cool place.

Candy Cane Bark

It looks to me like there is a missing section in the directions about the dark chocolate and the peppermint. In a bowl, combine dark chocolate with peppermint extract. HEAT IN THE MICROWAVE OR IN THE TOP OF A DOUBLE BOILER UNTIL MELTED. THEN spread mixture evenly onto prepared baking sheet.

Hope this helps.

In the recipe it says dark chocolate chips. Does that mean the semi-sweet ones??
