Reviews for Green Mint Bark
"I made this recipe for the first time! I used 1 package (12-oz.) chocolate truffle candy disks and 1 package of green candy disks and I used my double boiler over boiling water to melt both packages! I used a baking sheet with ledges which measured about 13x9x2" in width and lined the sheet with heavy-duty foil. I did use crushed candy canes (about 12 standard sized) which I'd pulsed in my food processor. I spread the melted chocolate disks over the foil (as evenly as I could) so that it covered the foil, then I melted the green disks and added the peppermint extract after the disks were melted. I DID have to watch how I spread the green layer-I ended up with a swirled bark-chocolate, green and marbled! I sprinkled top with the crushed candy canes (about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of crushed candy canes) and I chilled MORE than 10 minutes-I'd say at least 20 to 30 minutes to really make sure the bark was firm! It was very attractive and when I broke it into pieces, I got a 3-layered bark! I sampled some and found it to be very tasty! This is a really great recipe to use for the Christmas holidays OR for other special occasions! Thank you for contributing this recipe to Taste of Home! delowenstein"
"I only gave this 3 stars because with peppermint extract, the green candy coating seized up on me. Luckily, I had purchased 2 bags, so was able to redo it with peppermint oil. That worked beautifully."
"This is one of my annual "go to" recipes! I make it with the white chocolate chips and green candy melts...as well as semi-sweet chocolate chips and red candy melts! No matter where I bring it, I always bring home an empty container. Enjoy!"
"SO easy...and delicious too! Very festive, and adds some nice color to cookie trays!"
"Very easy to make! I used Peppermint Starlight Mints instead of Candy Canes and put them in the food process on pulse to crush them. This is a new Holiday must have recipe for sure :)"
