I mentioned recently that I was on the lookout for White Chocolate Peppermint M&M’s.
Well, I found them!
I have to admit that I am not a big fan of white chocolate. It’s ok, and I’ll eat it, but it isn’t my first choice.
That said, the M&M’s have a really nice flavor and I think it actually works well with the white chocolate.
Chocolate bark is a favorite holiday candy. It’s easy to make and can be made with a lot of flavor combinations. I thought that the peppermint M&M’s would be a nice addition to peppermint bark, by adding crunch, color, and of course, additional peppermint flavor!
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon peppermint extract (do not use peppermint oil)
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 bag White Chocolate Peppermint M&M’s, chopped
Line a jelly-roll pan or sheet pan with silpat or wax paper. Set aside.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips in 30 second intervals (stirring after each one), until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Stir in the peppermint extract. Evenly spread the chocolate onto the prepared pan. Refrigerate for 10 minutes, or until the chocolate has set.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips, using the same process as before. Once the chocolate is smooth, evenly spread this over the semi-sweet chocolate layer. Sprinkle on the chopped White Chocolate Peppermint M&M’s. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until the chocolate is set. Break into pieces and enjoy!
