Recipe: Mint Chocolate Bark

Hey guys! Back with another recipe! (should this be a regular thing? Let me know in the comments). This recipe is super quick and is perfect if your in a hurry or have had a bad day, and you just want a quick treat to keep you going! 

INGREDIENTS
  • 99g white chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon canola or vegetable oil
  • Green food colouring
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 226g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • optional: 1/3 cup chopped Andes mints
METHOD
  1. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Set aside.
  2. Melt the white chocolate Use a double boiler or microwave. If using microwave, stir the chocolate every 20 seconds to help avoid seizing. Once melted and smooth, stir in oil, peppermint extract and 1 drop of the food colouring. Set aside.
  3. Melt the dark chocolate in the same way you melted the chocolate in step 2. Pour onto prepared baking tray and spread out into a large rectangle. Drizzle the white chocolate mixture on top in lines. Use a toothpick to swirl the layers together. Optional: Sprinkle the top of the bark with Andes mints.
  4. Allow the chocolate to set at room temperature in a cool & dry environment. My bark usually takes around 45 minutes. If needed, you can put it in the refrigerator to help speed up the process. Once hardened, break into pieces as large or as small as you would like.
  5. Store in an air tight container at the back of the fridge and snack on it whenever you want!
This recipe is so simple and so yummy! Enjoy!
