Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone. Did you forget? Here’s a quick and sweet treat for your sweetheart. It takes about 20 minutes to make, and 25 minutes to chill and they’ll love ya forever.

Peppermint Bark

1/2 pound white chocolate, chopped into pieces
3 large candy canes
1/8 teaspoon mint extract

Line a baking sheet with parchment, and set aside. In the top of a double boiler, melt white chocolate, stirring constantly.

Pound candy canes into small pieces with a meat tenderizer. Stir candy canes and mint extract into the melted chocolate. Remove from heat; have a towel ready to wipe the bottom of the double broiler so you don’t get hot water on your cookie sheet. Pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet; spread evenly. Chill until firm, 25 to 30 minutes. Break into pieces, and eat up, Valentine!

  1. i like to make this where you do a layer of dark chocolate on the bottom, and put the white choco/bark on top…mmmmm…

  2. I can say, with confidence, that this stuff is delicious. The milk chocolate version is also quite good. I lasted about 20 minutes in my house.
