Not tile, but Bark

Leave a comment

In the spirit of offering helpful tips to our readers — here’s our new Christmas favorite — make your own peppermint bark (yummmm!)

Get 12 oz of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 12 oz white chocolate chips and 4-5 peppermint candy canes crushed. Put wax paper on a cookie sheet and follow the instructions below.

In a microwave safe bowl, add 1 Tablespoon of cooking oil to the chocolate chips and heat them in the microwave for about 1 minute to 1 minute and 20 seconds on high. Stir and pour the liquid chocolate into a thin layer on the cookie sheet. Sprinkle peppermint flakes all over the chocolate. Quickly go ahead and add 1 Tbsp. of cooking oil to the white chocolate and heat it in the microwave for 1 minute to 1 minute 20 seconds (careful not to overheat as it will burn).

Stir and pour the white chocolate over the first layer and use a spatula to spread thin. Sprinkle more peppermint on top and refrigerate for several hours. When the bark is hard, cut into bite sized pieces and enjoy!!!!

Merry Christmas and may next year hold promise for us all!
