these chocolate peppermint snowflakes have become an annual tradition thanks to this mold from amazon. this is our favorite way to give and enjoy peppermint bark, and it could not be any easier to make.
(we'll get back to real food in a little bit - christmas treat season is in full swing!)
| ingredients |
candiquick in chocolate and vanilla flavors
pure peppermint extract
crushed peppermint, candy canes or sprinkles to decorate
| method |
in a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate candi-quick until smooth and liquidy. add 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract per every 4 blocks of candi-quick and stir to distribute.
gently ladle the peppermint chocolate into your molds, being careful not to get any on the side of the mold (wipe off any excess for neater edges!) and then place in the fridge to harden for approximately 30 minutes.
repeat with the white chocolate, and top with your crushed peppermint or sprinkles before refrigerating. after the white chocolate is also hardened, remove the snowflakes from your mold and serve!
they make an adorable addition to this year's plate of christmas goodies we served on friday. (fudge recipe to follow soon!)
