Festive Bark by claremanson Festive Bark by claremanson
For Christmas this year i was planning on making peppermint creams. After my practice I thought there has to be a quicker way to coat them in chocolate as i will be making lots of them. So instead of dunking individual creams in dark chocolate, I rolled out the peppermint cream paste like dough, covered one side in melted chocolate, let set, turned over, covered the other side then finished off with sprinkles, to stay festive i used white chocolate star sprinkles. After setting I broke the bark up into shards, placed portions into small cellophane bags and tied with ribbon to keep them fresh. It worked great and saved a lot of time so this is my new plan and no baking involved, perfect.

Once again I forgot to have more than one piece! Same happened with your wedding cake and Lee's mince pies. The one piece I had was very tasty. =D

Great idea. When dipping them in melted chocolate half of them will break in halves, at least that happens to me...

I was thinking of giving peppermint creams as gifts after you shared the recipe (I'm doing hampers for family this year) :) And then you go and suggest another way of doing them! I'm very cross with you now ;) (of course, I hope you don't mind me 'borrowing' your ideas!)

Seriously though, these look amazing :D

Reminds me of the peppermint bark that I had the other day, though it didn't look nearly as pretty as this. xD
