A nice easy recipe that has lots of flavor. I messed up a bit and used semi-sweet chocolate as it came in mint flavor. I think it would better with the milk chocolate. I used small candy canes which were a pain to unwrap but I think when crushed they looked a bit more colorful than the big canes would.
Good ratios of ingredients. I used Ghirardelli milk and white choc chips, and it tastes almost identical to their peppermint bark squares (which I tasted at Disney and couldn't afford!) Thanks for posting!
The peppermint extract will cause the white chocolate to seize up - you need to use oil-based flavors especially for candy-makers. I read on another site that this needs to be made with good quality chocolate for the layers to adhere. I used a combination of Nestle's chips and a store brand (make sure it contains cocoa butter) and had no problems. Save some of the candy cane bits to sprinkle in top for color. You need to press them in. Very tasty will make again.
Great recipe! There weren't any regular candy canes at the store so I got a bunch of small ones and it turned out very nicely! The only thing I'd change is the part where you put the white on the milk chocolate. If you let it set fully the layers will break apart when making pieces. If you put the second layer on while the milk chocolate is still mostly liquid they will set together.
I followed the recipe and melted the chocolate it was perfect. I used Milk Chocolate Chipits. When I added the extract (Club House Pure Mint & Peppermint Extract) the chocolate clumped right up and I couldn't save it. I don't know what happened.
I made this at Christmas time and totally forgot to rate it. I normally do some sort of peppermint bark at Christmas and decided this year to do it this way. It was easy set up great. It looked so pretty when I had all the pieces chucked and in little pretty gift bags. This recipe is soo easy. And it's totally hard to make a flop with this unless you dropped it on the floor in the making process. LOL. But do give this easy tasty and simple recipe a try.
I've made this four times this week and taken it to work only to come home with an empty tin . I didnt have a problem with the two layers sticking together when I broke it like some did . I did use ghardelli chocolate but be wear the white chocolate chip bag is only 11 ounces . I'll be making plenty more of this for every ocassion !! Update I sent this back home for a friends Christmas Party and they said its even better then the Gharadelli Peppermint Bark you can buy !! I'll be making another three pans when I get home for our Christmas potluck at work :) PS I had no problems with the layers staying together when I broke the bark and I didnt add peppermint to the white chocolate but to the milk chocolate as per the instructions .. LOVE LOVE LOVE !!!!
