I love peppermint bark, but I hate white chocolate. The kind I like best has regular chocolate underneath and white chocolate mixed with peppermint pieces on the top. But it’s kinda hard to find without paying an arm and a leg for Girardelli’s peppermint bark.
So this year I decided to make some myself. Since I’ve never made any kind of bark before (and messing up peppermint bark might be too devastating), I thought I’d experiment with some leftover candy corn we had from Halloween.
Apparently making bark has a learning curve. While the end result was edible, it was way too thick, and I didn’t end up loving the chocolate I used. But live and learn, right?
Candy Corn Bark
- 1 Lb. chocolate chips
- candy corn for sprinkling
Step 1: Melt the chocolate in a double boiler (or a glass bowl set over a pan of water. Stir it occasionally until it’s all melted.
Step 2: Pour the melted chocolate into a baking dish lined with foil or waxed paper. Next time I will use a cookie sheet, since the bark was too thick. Sprinkle the candy corn over the top.
Does anybody out there make candy bark on a regular basis and want to impart some wisdom?
