Ingredients

1.5 lbs white chocolate
1.5 lbs of semi-sweet chocolate
24 peppermint candies


Set up two double boilers (a simmering pot of water with a glass bowl sitting over top, not touching the water).



Unwrap 24 Starlight peppermints and put them in a 1-qt ziploc baggie. Crush. (I handed the rolling pin to my sous chef and let him crush the candy ’cause he’s good at breaking stuff :) )



Let the chocolate melt mostly on it’s own, giving it a nudge every once in a while with a rubber spatula. When it’s mostly melted, remove it from the heat, being SUPER careful to make sure no steam or water got into the chocolate.



Stir until completely smooth and then spoon each chocolate in random blobs on a wax paper-lined 11×17, filling most of the surface.



Using the end of a small frosting spatula held vertically, swirl the chocolate until you’re happy with the presentation.



Pick up the pan a few inches off the counter and let it fall back, to evenly distribute the chocolate and get rid of any air bubbles.



Scatter the peppermint pieces over the top.



Let sit at room temperature until completely hardened.



Break the bark into pieces and enjoy! Store at room temperature in a covered container.
