Mint Bark

Nicole Bredeweg


When asked to come up with an ingredient from our Cupboard Of OPportunity (COOP) to build a meal around, my husband decided to get rid of some leftover white chocolate coating. We found this recipe on, and made it to take to friends'. They LOVED it -- my only regret is that I only made 1/2 a batch! See the end instruction for ideas. . .

1 lb
white chocolate coating
1/2 c
finely crushed pepperment candies (i used star mints)

Directions Step-By-Step

Break white chocolate coating into pieces. Place in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on medium power 5 - 6 minutes, stirring several times (melting times vary from oven to oven). Be careful not to burn. Add a little paraffin if the melted coating is not fluid enough. Stir in crushed candy. Pour onto unbuttered aluminum foil and spread to about 1/4" thick. Let set until firm. Break into pieces.
Variations: Try switching up the white with the milk chocolate coating. And/or try other hard candies, like butterscotch, cinnamon, toffee bits, etc.
