Peppermint Bark

Even though it's after Christmas, it's never a bad time for some peppermint bark.... the combo of chocolate and peppermints is just SO good.

For this recipe, I made both regular bark and broke it up into pieces, and shaped peppermint bark, using cookie cutters. The instructions below are to use cookie cutters and shape them, but this results in a thicker bark. If you prefer it thinner, just pour chocolate onto a parchment-lined pan rather than into cookie cutters.

Peppermint Bark
1lb white chocolate, chopped
1lb milk chocolate, chopped
1 package soft peppermint candies, crushed
1/2 tsp peppermint oil

Place cookie cutters into freezer. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Melt milk chocolate. Stir in 1/4tsp peppermint oil.
Place cookie cutters on parchment paper-lined sheet.
Pour chocolate into cookie cutters, making sure it fills all the edges. 
Place in freezer for 15 mins.
 Melt white chocolate. Stir in 1/4 tsp peppermint oil.
Remove milk chocolate cutters from freezer and top with white chocolate.
Sprinkle crushed peppermint candies over top.
Put back in freezer, letting sit for at least 1 hour, or until solid.
To remove from cookie cutters, gently push. If needed, use knife to release from edges.
