Chocolate Peppermint Bark

This is such a fantastic recipe and so easy to make with 3 ingredients.  I love the play of the bitter dark chocolate and the sweet white chocolate with the crunchy peppermint candy canes.  

It is such a quick thing to throw together and so nice to eat, even better as a gift or a small treat after dinner with a coffee.

I really should make this more often with different toppings as the family loves it.

This is the only time I use my expensive Callebaut Chocolate it is well worth paying a little extra for the decent chocolate.

My measurements here are purely for the amount I wanted to make, you can make more or less as you need it.

1 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
4 to 6 large candy canes

Either in a double boiler or microwave melt your chocolate.  If you can temper your chocolate ... even better.

Spread on a lined baking sheet and set aside for an hour to harden.

Stick your candy canes either in a food processor and smoosh, yes that is the technical term.

After an hour when the dark chocolate is hardened you can repeat the same with the white chocolate and spread over the dark chocolate.

Sprinkle the candy canes over the top and using a bit of baking paper, gently press the candy canes down into the chocolate.  Allow to harden and stick it in the fridge.   When it is cold it is easy to break up.  Break into pieces and stick into an airtight container in the fridge.  

If it lasts that long!
