Simple Salted Peppermint Bark
 
Makes about 1 pound
Ingredients
  • 6 ounces (170 grams) dark chocolate melting wafers
  • ¾ teaspoon (3 grams) peppermint extract, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon (1 gram) vanilla extract
  • 8 ounces (227 grams) white chocolate melting wafers
  • 8 round peppermint candies, roughly crushed (36 grams)
  • ¼ teaspoon (1 gram) flaked sea salt
Instructions
  1. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, letting excess extend over sides of pan.
  2. In a small microwave-safe bowl, place dark chocolate; heat on high in 10-second intervals, stirring between each, until melted and smooth, about 1 minute to 1 minute and 30 seconds. Stir in ½ teaspoon (2 grams) peppermint extract and vanilla.
  3. Spread melted dark chocolate in an even layer on bottom of prepared pan. Firmly tap on counter several times to remove any air bubbles; let stand for 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in another small microwave-safe bowl, place white chocolate; heat on high in 10-second intervals, stirring between each, until melted and smooth, about 1 minute to 1 minute and 30 seconds. Stir in remaining ¼ teaspoon (1 gram) peppermint extract.
  5. Spread melted white chocolate onto dark chocolate. Sprinkle with crushed peppermints and sea salt. Let stand until hardened, about 1 hour. Use immediately, or store in an airtight container.
