Christmas Cheer - Peppermint Pretzel Bark
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 1 12 oz. package chocolate chips
  • ½ tsp. peppermint extract (optional)
  • 1.5 cups small salted pretzels
  • 1 12 oz. package white chocolate chips (make sure they have cocoa butter in the ingredients)
  • 1.5 oz. candy canes, broken into small pieces
  1. In a microwave proof bowl, microwave the chocolate chips for 30 seconds, stir, and then microwave in 15 second intervals, stirring between each bout, until the chips are melted. Mix in pretzels, spread as thinly as possible onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and pop in the freezer for 15-30 minutes or until firm.
  2. Repeat the microwaving process with the white chocolate chips. Quickly spread the white chocolate on top of the hardened chocolate pretzel mixture, and sprinkle candy canes on top. Let cool until firm, and using a sharp knife, break into pieces.
