Andes Peppermint Bark

Peppermint Bark2

Another month in the Leftovers Club! My partner this time was Angela at Mind Over Batter. Head over to her blog and check out her delicious recipes! I can’t wait to try the Banana Maple Caramel Corn.  In honor of Christmas, I made peppermint bark. This is too easy and too good not to make. Who doesn’t love Andes mints? I used to stuff my pockets with them when I was leaving Benihana’s (totally normal).  Anyways, when I spied Andes peppermint crunch on the shelves, I couldn’t wait to use it to make peppermint bark! It’s less crunchy than normal peppermint bark because of the creamy nature of Andes mints, which I loved as a different twist! Peppermint Bark Peppermint Bark7 Peppermint Bark4Peppermint Bark6 Peppermint Bark1


Andes Peppermint Bark

What you need:

  • One package chocolate almond bark
  • One package vanilla almond bark
  • about 3/4 bag Andes Peppermint crunch

What to do:

  1. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper; set aside. Melt the chocolate almond bark in a double broiler (or a pot of boiling water with a glass bowl on top). This should take about 10 minutes or so. Once melted, pour chocolate onto cookie sheet and spread until smooth. Let cool for at least an hour (you can put it in the fridge or freezer to expedite the process).
  2. Repeat steps to melt the vanilla almond bark. Once chocolate bark is cooled, pour vanilla bark over and spread until smooth. Sprinkle with Andes peppermint crunch. I used about 3/4 of my bag. Tweak as you like!
  3. Let cool for 1-2 hours (or overnight). Break into pieces and enjoy!
