Peppermint Bark

2 cups of Ghirardelli’s 60% cocoa

1 cup of good quality white chocolate

12 unwrapped peppermints candies

Place peppermints into a zip top bag; crush the mints by banging them with a rolling pin and set aside.  Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave slowly in 30 second intervals stirring each time.  Use the least amount of heat possible to get the chocolate melted.  Pour the chocolate out onto a baking sheet lined with waxed paper.  Melt the white chocolate in the same manor; pour it over the dark chocolate in vertical lines.  Using a toothpick, drag the 2 colors of chocolate together, creating a ribbon effect.  Sprinkle crushed peppermint over the chocolate.  Place the chocolate bark into the refrigerator until it has set firmly.  Break the bark into pieces.  Enjoy!

About Lorie Fangio

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger. Finding time to spend together as a family unit can be difficult especially with dual family careers and children that are often hyper scheduled. My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world. With tips and techniques we can all get our families Around the Table!
