I love chocolate and peppermint together, and I have seen so many great recipes for peppermint bark. But when I saw these cute little snow flake cookie cutters at the store this morning this idea came to me, Peppermint Snow Flake Bark! They turned out so cute and I am totally giving them as gifts!!!
- 1 cup white chocolate candy bark, I use Chocomaker, I get this from Hobby Lobby
- 1 cup dark chocolate dipping candy bark, I use Chocomaker, I get this from Hobby Lobby
- 3 candy canes crushed, into really small bits (no big chunks)
- 5 snow flake cookie cutters, I used metal ones I am sure plastic would work too
- 2 disposable frosting bags, I used the Wilton ones
Place the 5 cookie cutters on parchment paper placed on top of a cookie sheet and set aside.
In a small bow microwave the dark chocolate until melted. I cooked it for 1 minute, then stirred and had to heat for another 30 seconds until it was completely melted.
In a frosting bag, pour the chocolate into the bag, cut the bottom. The slowly squeeze out the chocolate at the bottom of each snowflake, trying to divide the chocolate evenly so that you have 5. I just eye ball it.
Tap the cookie sheet against the counter to level out the chocolate and get out any air bubbles.
Place in the refrigerator for 2-3 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bow microwave the white chocolate until melted. I cooked it for 1 minute, then stirred and had to heat for another 30 seconds until it was completely melted.
Get out the chocolates in the fridge.
In a frosting bag, pour the white chocolate into the bag, cut the bottom. The slowly squeeze out the white chocolate on top of the chocolate, trying to divide the chocolate evenly so that you have 5, use the tip of the bag to make sure you get the chocolate in all the creases.
Sprinkle crushed candy cane on top of white chocolate and set in the fridge to harden for 5 minutes.
Remove the chocolate gently from each cookie cutter by pulling the cookie cutter away from the chocolate or just push out the bottom. Some of them were easier than others.
Place in a small clear bag and tie with ribbon to make this as a gift or set on top of a cookie platter to go with your other treats!
Kids review: They were beyond excited to give these away. I said we weren’t going to eat any, but two mysteriously disappeared along with two toddlers. Found bot the chocolate and the kids behind the couch…so only three to give now. LOL! Love these kind of moments.
