prep time: 20 mins  |  bake TIME: 10 mins   |  servings: 12-16   |   FROM NORDICWARE

Ingredients

  •  30 crushed peppermint hard candies, divided
  •  1 1/2 pounds dark chocolate candy, coarsely chopped
  •  1 1/2 pounds white chocolate, chopped
  •  1 teaspoon oil-based peppermint flavoring, plus more to taste

Instructions

  1. Spread 1/3 of the peppermint candy over a 9”x 13” baking pan lined with wax paper.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate in the top of a double boiler over just-barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, just until melted. Pour the melted chocolate over peppermint candy in the prepared pan. Sprinkle another 1/3 of the candy on top of the dark chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens, about 30 minutes.
  3. Melt the white chocolate in the top of a double boiler over just-barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Stir in the oil-based peppermint flavoring. Pour the white chocolate over the milk chocolate, then spread the remaining 1/3 peppermint candy on top.
  4. Refrigerate until the white chocolate hardens, about 30 minutes. Cut or break into pieces to serve.
