- 8 peppermint candy canes
- 2 (12 ounce) bags dark chocolate or semi sweet chips (I use Ghirardelli 60% cocao)
- 4 drops peppermint oil
- 2 (12 ounce) bags white chocolate chips
The key to a great peppermint bark is the quality of the chocolate chips, use the best you can find, and peppermint oil, which imparts a more intense flavoring. You can use peppermint extract but make sure it is pure and has no additives so the chocolate does not seize up when you add it in. You could also add a bit of coconut or canola oil along with the extract to prevent this.
