White Chocolate Peppermint-Pretzel Bark
·1 (16 oz.) package vanilla candy coating (like almond bark coating, candy melts, or Candi-Quick)
·1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
·1/2 c. coarsely chopped pretzel sticks
·1/2 c. coarsely crushed peppermint candy canes
·1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
How to Make White Chocolate Peppermint-Pretzel Bark
- Line cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with waxed paper or parchment.
- Melt vanilla candy coating in the microwave, per package directions (typically in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval until melted and smooth). Stir in peppermint extract.
- Spread melted vanilla candy coating onto prepared pan until it's about 1/4-inch thick; don't worry about the shape ... you're going to break it into pieces later anyway! Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 45 seconds in the microwave or in a small saucepan over medium-low heat); stir until smooth. Drizzle stripes over the still-warm vanilla candy coating. To marbelize, use a sharp knife to draw lines through the vanilla candy coating perpendicular to the chocolate stripes.
- Sprinkle chopped pretzels and candy cane pieces evenly over the top. Gently press into the coating. Chill in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to set. Break into pieces.
