All week, we'll be sharing simple ideas to make your gift gifting a success! Top them off with labels from our Essential Holiday collection and your gift will look as beautiful on the outside as the contents are on the inside.
It may just be me, but nothing says "Holiday Cheer" more than a little chocolate and peppermint combo in a classic Peppermint Bark.
Ingredients: 12 oz White Chocolate, 12 Oz Dark Chocolate, Crushed Candy Canes, 1-2 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil (Please be sure that your essential oil is labeled as safe for internal consumption.)
Melt both Chocolates in separate bowls. Add 1-2 Drops Peppermint Essential oil to the white chocolate mixture. While both chocolates are still warm, pour 1 onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Immediately drizzle the second chocolate on top. Gently shake the pan or tap it on the counter to encourage the chocolate to spread out evenly, but do not smooth with a spoon or spatula. Sprinkle crushed candy canes on top, refrigerate until completely solid, then break apart with a butter knife. Best if consumed within 5-7 days.
Try mixing it up with this Cinnamon and Spice Chocolate Bark. Follow the directions above, but add 1 drop of Cinnamon Essential Oil to the milk chocolate and 1/4 t cayenne to the dark chocolate. Top with roasted, salted pepitas (pumpkin seeds).
I'm dreaming up another version of this involving Orange Essential Oil and Pistachios! So much chocolate...so little time!
