Want chocolate? Want dessert? Want something that doesn’t require baking or cooking? This is THE dessert for you! Well, you can categorize it as candy too, but I prefer calling it dessert. Just a tiny piece of this chocolatey and minty peppermint bark will satisfy your sweet tooth and after dinner dessert craving! It’s “pearly” because I decorate it with pastel green sugar pearls- festive and delicious!
Pearly Peppermint Bark:
- 2 bars bittersweet chocolate (I use Ghiradelli 70% cacao)
- 1 bar white chocolate (I use Ghiradelli)
- 1-2 tbsp peppermint extract
- green sugar pearls- for decorating
1. In a microwave-safe bowl break up dark chocolate bar and microwave for 35 seconds. Remove and stir with a spatula and microwave for another 35 seconds. By this time the chocolate should be melted, if there are unmelted chunks, just stir until everything is melted. Set aside for about 1-2 minutes until room temperature. Stir in 1- 2 tbsp of peppermint extract.
2. Repeat process for white chocolate and stir in extract. Set aside to cool until room temperature.
3. On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, pour dark chocolate and spread evenly, but don’t make it too thin. Pour white chocolate on top and using a toothpick or a wooden skewer, swirl into dark chocolate. Top with sugar pearls. Set aside to cool (uncovered or covered is fine).
4. Break the chocolate into chunks and eat!
