Christmas is different this year.
The virus is out of control,
here in Canada, as with the rest of the world,
we have to stay home to stay safe.
We're all in this together.
I've decided to do some
baking for gifts this year.
I made this Christmas Bark
Fast and fun to make with
only 4 ingredients.
1 1/2 cups (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
*1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
12 candy canes crushed up with a rolling pan or
or hammer into a ziplock bag.
Optional ~ 1/2 tsp pure peppermint.
*The white chocolate should contain
cocoa butter and not palm oil,
or it will separate from the dark chocolate.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Melt the chocolate chips in the
microwave at 30 seconds intervals,
stirring after each.
In my microwave it takes 60seconds.
Spread the melted chocolate out on a
parchment lined baking sheet,
approx. 12x8 inches.
Place in refrigerator to cool, for 15 minutes.
Melt the white chocolate in the microwave.
Optional ~After melted, add in the 1/2tsp. peppermint
Add some of the broken candycanes
and mix together.
Spread the white chocolate over
the darker chocolate on the cookie sheet.
Add remaining candy.
Press down lightly to indent
them into the chocolate.
After 20 minutes,
I remove from fridge and cut in squares,
with a large knife.
Return to the refrigerator to harden more,
approx. 1 hr. they are ready.
If you don't want to cut them, they can
be broken into pieces.
This bark will keep 2 weeks at room temperature
and 3 weeks in the fridge.
My tree is up with lights only,
I'll continue decorating it, this weekend.
Thanks for your visit xo
