Test Kitchen tips
  • If the bark hardens too quickly, you may have trouble getting toppings to stick. Try popping the pan into a warm oven for a minute to soften the chocolate before adding toppings.
  • A resealable plastic bag with a corner cut off works well for drizzling white chocolate over the bark.

      I agree with the other reviewer on the white chocolate chips. They were way too thick to be drizzled onto the base. I ended up dropping it by spoonfuls. It looked awful but tasted good.

      I love anything with mint and chocolate. This recipe was so easy to make. I didn't have dark chocolate so I used semi-sweet chips and melted them in the microwave. I also did not have white bark so I just used the crushed candy canes on top. It didn't affect the taste at all and they were still very attractive with just the crushed mints. This recipe makes a lot so I was able to take it to 2 functions and received several compliments at each. This recipe is a keeper!

      This was a really simple recipe to follow. I melted the chips in the microwave as I have a button for melting chocolate. I did have trouble melting the white chips. I burned two bowls before I remembered melting these chips for a cookie drizzle. I added a teaspoon of white vegetableshortening and it did fine. I also had purchased crushed peppermint for another recipe so that was easy. Nice addition to a cookie plate.
