With so many reasons to celebrate during the month of December there will undoubtedly be a time that a quick to create entertaining treat is in order. Simple Chocolate Peppermint Bark.
This holiday treat requires only three ingredients, has no need for a mixer and leaves just two dishes to wash when it is time to clean up.
Simple Chocolate Peppermint Bark
1 Box Chocolate Graham Crackers
2 Packages White Chocolate Chips
7-8 Peppermint Candy Canes
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare a 10 x 15 baking sheet by covering it with parchment paper.
Cover the baking sheet with a layer of Chocolate Graham Crackers (it will take approximately two sleeves of crackers). Pour both bags of White Chocolate Chips over the Graham Crackers then spread them evenly over the top of the crackers.
Place the pan in the oven and bake it for 3 1/2 to 4 minutes or until the White Chocolate Chips are shiny.
Next, unwrap the Candy Canes and crush them into tiny pieces. To accomplish this I put the Candy Canes in a plastic bag then used a rolling pin to break up the candy.
Remove the pan from the oven. Lightly drag a frosting spatula or butter knife over the top of the soft Chocolate Chips. Continue spreading the chocolate until all of the Graham Crackers are covered.
Sprinkle Candy Cane pieces over the melted Chocolate.
Place the pan in the freezer for about an hour. Carefully lift the parchment paper from the pan then break the Chocolate Peppermint Bark into serving size pieces.
Along with an addition to holiday entertaining this sweet treat makes a great gift too. Just pile the bark into a jar and wrap a ribbon around the top.
