Dark Chocolate Mint Bark Recipe
8 oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped (I used Baker’s)
5 oz white chocolate, chopped (I used Baker’s)
1 oz (or 1/4 cup) green candy melts
2 drops peppermint oil
Line a large baking sheet with parchment or a silicone baking mat and set it aside.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the semi-sweet chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals (stirring in between) until melted.
In a separate microwave safe bowl, melt the white chocolate and green candy melts together in 30 second intervals (stirring in between) until melted. Add 2 drops of peppermint oil and stir well. Test to see if this is minty enough for you and add more if desired.
Pour the melted semi-sweet chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet and spread it out into a largish rectangle.
Drizzle the white chocolate mixture on top, in lines. Use a toothpick, skewer or butter knife to swirl the layers together.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
Use your hands to break the bark into pieces as large or as small as you want and enjoy!
Can I turn this into Mint Chocolate M&M Bark?
Yes! Grab some regular M&M’s or mint M&M’s and push them gently into the mint bark before it has set. Voila! Mint Chocolate M&M Bark!
Does Mint Bark Go Bad?
This mint bark will last for up to two weeks in a sealed container or Ziploc bag in the fridge. You can also leave it on a plate covered with foil for a few days if your home isn’t too warm such that it might melt.
