Prep time: Cook time:
Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Candies Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 10 ounce(s) chocolate chips (Ghirardelli is really good; I use 60% cacao bittersweet)
  • 1 pound(s) white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) peppermint extract (pure extract is better than imitation as imitation might cause chocolate to seize up)
  • 1/2 cup(s) crushed peppermint candy
Intructions :
  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Line a 9x13-inch pan with foil, letting it hang over the sides. Spray the foil with cooking spray
  • Spread the chocolate chips in an even layer over the foil
  • Place in oven 5 minutes
  • Remove and smooth with a spatula. Place in refrigerator until firm, about 20 minutes
  • Melt the white chocolate chips in a double boiler
  • Stir in the extract. Let cool a bit
  • Pour over the chocolate layer. Work quickly to spread
  • Sprinkle with the crushed candy. Gently press the candy into the chocolate
  • Chill until firm
  • Lift foil and shake off the excess candy. Cut into 2-inch wide strips. Chill in a covered container.
