Salted Chocolate Peppermint Bark has dark chocolate as the base with white chocolate drizzle on top. Topped with crushed peppermint and a sprinkle of flaked sea salt!
So as I was sitting at my desk telling myself I really need to get on it and start posting some Christmas recipes, since I totally fell off the Thanksgiving wagon and didn’t really do much for you there. I thought of the one thing that really tastes like the holidays to me, peppermint bark. Then I thought about how I could jazz it up.
Sea salt. Big fat flakes of sea salt.
Sprinkled over the dark chocolate layer, and then pour over that… a creamy layer of white chocolate, sprinkled with lots of crushed peppermint. *sigh* I know for sure, if you’re a salty-chocolate lover like myself… you will be lovin’ this recipe! It’s easy-peasy to make, and if wrapped in a fun and festive tin would make a great gift for teachers, a co-worker or a neighbor!
To Make This Salted Chocolate Peppermint Bark:
- dark chocolate
- white chocolate
- peppermint candy or candy canes
- sea salt
Throw some broken pieces of peppermint candy canes into a mini food processor.
Pulse six to eight times until they are broken into tiny pieces and set aside.
Bring a shallow pan of water to a boil and place the bowl of dark chocolate on top (make sure the water isn’t touching the bottom of the bowl). Stir and let the steam melt the chocolate. Keep stirring!
Then before all the chocolate is melted I remove it off the heat and let the residual heat melt any of the un-melted chocolate.
Pour the chocolate on a foil lined sheet pan. Make sure the matte side is facing up.
Spread it evenly, or somewhat evenly and then sprinkle with the flaked sea salt. Pop it into the fridge so it can cool and harden.
Once the dark chocolate has cooled, repeat the same with the white chocolate. Melt, stir, you know the drill!
Once melted, pour the white chocolate over chilled dark chocolate. If the white chocolate is too warm it could melt the dark chocolate and smear when you spread it, if that happens don’t sweat it because you’re covering it up with loads of peppermint!
Lastly, sprinkle with the crushed candy. Press the pieces into the chocolate so they stick.
Place the sheet pan back into the fridge to harden; this should take about 20 minutes.
This Salted Chocolate Peppermint Bark is by far one of my favorite holiday sweets. Give this as gifts or keep it for yourself, I don’t care what you do just make this asap!
