Andes Mint Bark {guest post}

*Hey everybody! Season 14 of So You Think You’re Crafty is going to be fantastic. However, it won’t be starting until the New Year – we decided to let the crafters have a little break and family time too :) . But I have a great schedule of guest posts and shop spotlights lined up from now until then. Have a great Holiday season and see you all after the New Year!*

Hey everyone! My name is Nikki and I blog over at Domestically Modern. I’m kind of a newbie when it comes to the whole blogging thing, but I have totally loved it so far.  I’ve always been crafty and now I have a brand new reason to be crafting up a storm whenever inspiration hits!  

Since the holidays are coming up I thought it would be nice to get into the spirit and share something I love to give away as a present, or have at all those holiday parties. I’m going to be giving you a recipe for Andes Mint Bark.  It’s a chocolatey delicious take on peppermint bark…and in my opinion (and my husbands!) can’t be beat!


Ingredients:

16 ounces of Bakers semi-sweet chocolate
12 ounces of Bakers white chocolate
Splash of peppermint extract
Crushed up Andes Mints (You can buy these or make them yourself)

How to make your bark:

  1. Melt semi-sweet chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, or double boiler (as long as you melt it, doesn’t matter how).
  2. Pour and spread chocolate into a 13×9 pan that is covered in parchment paper.
  3. Put this in fridge and wait until it is hardened.
  4. After the first layer is good and hard, melt the white chocolate in a microwaveable bowl.
  5. Splash some peppermint extract in the white chocolate and stir.  However much or however little your peppermint loving heart desires!
  6. Pour this mixture over the dark chocolate. *Be careful when spreading this mix it will tend to make the darker chocolate mix with it if you push too hard!
  7. Place this in the refrigerator for about 3-4 minutes, not to get hard just to firm up a bit.
  8. Once firmed pour Andes Mints onto the top layer and lightly press the pieces into the chocolate.
  9. Place whole thing back into fridge and firm for 3-4 hours
  10. Get out of fridge and have fun breaking up that bark!

Now you are ready to put your bark in a cute mason jar or tin or something cute like that!!

Look at how pretty that is…plus it looks impressive!So give it a try and give your friends, family, and guests a minty, chocolatey, homemade and easy gift for the holidays!

Thanks for reading and make sure to stop by Domestically Modern sometime!

XOXO,
