Ingredients

How to make it

  • Line an 11 x 17-inch baking sheet with foil and set aside.
  • Melt bittersweet chocolate in the top of a double boiler over lightly boiling water, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in ¼ teaspoon of peppermint extract (or more to taste).
  • Spread chocolate evenly onto the prepared sheet, using an off-set spatula.
  • Chill until set, about 1 hour.
  • Melt white chocolate in the top of a double boiler over lightly boiling water, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in remaining ¼ teaspoon of peppermint extract, (or more to taste) then add candy canes and stir to combine.
  • Spread white chocolate mixture over chilled dark chocolate, spreading to the edge of the pan with an off-set spatula.
  • Chill until set, about four hours or overnight.
  • Refrigerate until just before serving, then break into pieces and serve or package as gifts.
  • Will keep in fridge for 5 - 6 weeks (or more...).
  • **Options**· The recipe could be changed slightly by using nuts or crushed cinnamon or butterscotch candies instead of peppermint to create different types and tastes but along with changing the topping, I would suggest a change of extract - vanilla, lemon, coconut, coffee...the possibilities and combinations are endless! Enjoy! :)

    This is super good and easy! Several years ago, I saw this in a lovely little shop. It was packaged in clear bags, and tied with ribbon. Just a very few pieces sold for 12.95. Well, just talked myself into making a batch! :)
