On the fourth day of Christmas YoungWifey shared with me, her peppermint bark recipe, dark chocolate peanut butter balls, cracked glass candy, and her peanut butter fudge recipe…

Part I – Dark Mint Chocolate Base

Ingredients: 2 lbs. dark chocolate, 1 tsp. peppermint oil

Directions: Melt chocolate in a double boiler, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and mix in peppermint oil. Immediately pour onto a wax paper lined baking tray. Tap tray on counter until chocolate is smooth and level. Refrigerate until hardened.

Part II – White Mint Chocolate Topping

Ingredients: 1 c. crushed candy canes, 1 tsp. peppermint oil, 2 lbs. white chocolate

Directions: Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and mix in peppermint oil. Immediately pour on top of dark mint chocolate, use a spatula to even out. Sprinkle crushed candy cane on top of white mint chocolate and gently press into place. Place the baking tray back into the fridge until hardened. Break chocolate into pieces (like peanut butter brittle).
