Freshly made, slender slab of thinly layered milk chocolate and white chocolate, infused with natural peppermint oil extract, topped with a sprinkling of crushed mint candy cane pieces.
This authentic recipe chocolate delight, hails from the seasonal American treat called 'Peppermint Bark'. After tasting it on a trip to the USA (and then being pretty frustrated at not being able to buy it in the UK), I combed the internet for a couple of 'basic' recipes, which after some tweaking, became a single 'great' recipe (well, we think it's delicious, we hope you'll agree :))!
First, we add just the right amount of natural peppermint oil extract to the milk chocolate, then gently stir to make sure that lovely aromatic oil flows throughout every drop of chocolate. Then we pour the lovely, molten minty chocolate into our mould, and leave to set. Then we repeat the process with delicious creamy white Belgian chocolate, and carefully pour it over the cooled milk chocolate, but before it has time to completely harden, we add a generous sprinkling of crushed mint candy cane.
So after the initial fresh aroma which hits you upon unwrapping, your tastebuds are teased with smooth, rich chocolate, and intensely minty flavour bursts in the form of little candy cane nibs. A celebration of the senses!
The result is a deliciously different, moorish treat, which is a far cry from your typical 'High Street' offerings and looks just as good as it tastes!
