Peppermint Bark (www.pbfingers.com)
- 1 pound dark or semi-sweet chocolate
- 1 pound white chocolate
- 1 to 2 teaspoons peppermint extract (I used 1 tsp.)
- 1 teaspoon canola oil
- 4 to 5 regular-size candy canes, crushed
Line a baking sheet (with raised edges) with foil, and spray with non-stick spray.
Melt dark chocolate in microwave (30 second intervals on high, stirring in between).
Add 1/2 tsp. of canola oil and spread evenly in pan. Refrigerate until solid.
Melt white chocolate using the same method, and add 1/2 tsp. of oil, as well as the peppermint extract.
Spread white chocolate mixture over dark chocolate layer (it is best to let the white chocolate cool a bit, so it doesn’t melt the dark chocolate and swirl layers together).
Sprinkle crushed candy cane pieces on top, and refrigerate (or freeze) until solid.
Remove from cookie sheet, peel off foil layer, and chop into pieces. Enjoy!
Dan rated the bark a 7... it was good but not something I would crave.
Chocolate Covered Oreos
- White and Dark Baker's Chocolate
Melt the chocolate.
Dip the Oreos.
Yum! Dan rated these a 7 as well :)
Again, these were nothing special, but very easy and enough to impress people with their looks at least.
