It's the third Monday of the month, and you know what that means! Secret Recipe Club Reveal Day! Our assigned blog this month was The Weekend Gourmet by Wendy from Texas. The Weekend Gourmet features tons of festive recipes for every occasion, from the big game to National Brownie Day to the holidays. Wendy also offers giveaways very often, so check out her great blog for recipe ideas or for the chance to win a prize!
In the spirit of Christmas, we decided to make Wendy's original Peppermint Bliss Bark to include in our treat packages that will be going out to friends and neighbors. This recipe was so easy to make and turned out a delicious bite filled with plenty of different textures and flavors - chocolate, peppermint, oreo cookie and marshmallows. Blissful indeed! We followed Wendy's directions but used fewer peppermint pieces. Our version of her recipe is below. Make this stuff! It's delish!
from The Weekend Gourmet
4 ounces white chocolate
Melt chocolate chips in a double-boiler or very carefully in the microwave. Place marshmallows, cookies and 1/4 cup peppermint candies in a large bowl. Fold in the melted chocolate and gently mix until everything is combined. Lay a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet and spread the mixture onto the paper. Melt the white chocolate in a double-boiler or very carefully in the microwave. Drizzle the white chocolate over the semi-sweet chocolate bark and sprinkle with remaining peppermint pieces. Chill the bark in the refrigerator (or outside if it's cold enough!) for an hour so it hardens. Cut into pieces and store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve/share/eat.
