Servings 15 pieces
- 8 oz dark chocolate chopped
- 8 oz white chocolate chopped
- 1 teaspoon shortening OR coconut oil divided
- 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract not essential oil, not "mint"
- 8 crushed peppermint candies
Line an 8x8 or 9x9 inch square pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang so you can lift out the entire bar later.
Melt the dark chocolate. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon shortening OR coconut oil, and 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract. Evenly spread it in the prepared pan. Freeze until solid.
Melt the white chocolate. Stir in the remaining 1/2 teaspoon shortening OR coconut oil, and 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract. Carefully spread over the frozen dark chocolate, taking care not to push down too much or the dark chocolate will start melting into it.
Sprinkle the crushed peppermint candies over the white chocolate and gently push into the top without disturbing the chocolate.
Freeze the chocolate bark until solid. Leave out at room temperature for 10 minutes before breaking or cutting into pieces. Store in an airtight container for 2 weeks - best in the fridge.
