crushed starlight candiesholiday M&Ms, peppermint Hershey Kisses, etc. for topping
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the white chocolate and dark chocolate into separate microwave safe bowls (glass recommended). Add 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract to each.
Microwave each bowl at 50% power for 90 seconds. Stir well, and continue heating at 50% power in 30 second increments while stirring in between until the chocolate has fully melted.
Once both chocolates are fully melted, start by pouring the dark chocolate onto the parchment lined baking sheet. Then, pour the white chocolate on top. Using a butter knife or a spoon, swirl the two chocolates together until you're happy with the pattern. Top with candies.
Allow to cool at room temperature. If your house is on the warmer side and the chocolate doesn't harden, you can refrigerate until firm.
To cut, lift out using the parchment and transfer to a large cutting board. Use a large sharp knife and cut into chunks.
Anything with peppermint should be stored away from other treats as the peppermint flavor will take over. If gifting peppermint bark, be sure to wrap it separately or with other peppermint goodies.
