This weekend Annie and I decided to get on some of our holiday baking. We like to have treats around the entire month. We made peppermint bark and white trash (though our white trash is made with cashews only due to a peanut allergy).
Here is Annie helping me spread the chocolate for the peppermint bark.
Because the white chocolate melts the brown chocolate I smear that on. Annie helped with the crushing of the candy canes and making sure they were evenly distributed on the pan.
Here she is “pepperminting” our peppermint bark. (Pepperminting was her term and I thought it was so cute and descriptive.)
There really isn’t a recipe for this. I just used one package of the white almond bark and one of the chocolate. I left three blocks in each package so that we would have some to dip pretzels in. We melted the brown chocolate and spread it on the bottom of a cookie sheet and put it in the fridge to harden up while we melted the white. I spread the white on the chocolate making sure to not spread it too much once the heat of the white had melted the chocolate a little. We broke up one package of candy canes and evenly distributed them on the white chocolate while it was still hot. We chilled it in the fridge again until hard and broke it into bits. Because it is made of the almond bark it doesn’t melt too easily. My kids love it and I am sure yours will too!
