I want to share how to make some of my favie Holiday treats with you darlin’!
Mint + Chocolate = Heaven yo!
Candice’s Holiday Peppermint Bark
2 (12 oz) bags of semi sweet chocolate chips
2 (12 oz) bags of white chocolate chips
1 teaspoon of peppermint extract
2 drops of green food coloring
5 candy canes, smashed up in 2 re-sealable freezer bags, wrappers removed
1- Line a large baking sheet 9×12” with foil
2- In a double boiler (meaning a saucepan filled ½ way with boiling water, place a stainless steel mixing bowl on top, indirect heat always with chocolate!duur!) melt the dark chocolate chips first
3- Thinly Spread a later of the dark melted chocolate on the foil lined sheet tray (using a spatula) and allow it to cool in the fridge until firm, about 8 minutes.
4- While the dark chocolate is cooling, in a clean stainless bowl, melt the white chocolate chips now.
5- After the chips have all melted add the teaspoon of peppermint extract and the 2 drops of green food coloring, its supposed to be a faint green, not slimer style! Mix in well with a rubber spatula.
6-Remove the dark, solid chocolate from the fridge and pour the white chocolate on top of the dark, spreading an even layer across the entire sheet.
7- Sprinkle the 5 tiny, tiny smashed candy cane sprinkles all over the top of the chocolate, now refrigerate for about 20 minutes until fully solid. Break into bite sized pieces, not perfect lil pieces, b/c perfection is so overrated! And enjoy you hot sexy crafty lady!
And ummm yeah, you are allowed to have chocolate for the holidays loveys! xx
