accent pillow case baby Peppermint Bark Recipe customized baby gifts

This peppermint bark recipe is a bit different than most! It includes Rice Krispie treats to give the bark a bit of extra pop! It’;s one of my families favorite Holiday treats!

I’;ve had a couple of requests to share the peppermint bark recipe that was in these boxes:

Which I don’;t mind sharing at all as it’;s one of my favorite Christmas Recipes!! ?I’;ve been making this peppermint bark for years now. It’;s slightly different than other recipes that I’;ve seen in that it uses Rice Krispie cereal to made it extra light and crunchy.

The recipe is adapted from one that appeared in?Everyday Food magazine about 5 years ago. I’;ve made a few changes to the original recipe, but it’;s still?super simple! You’;ve still got time to make them before Christmas.

You’;ll need:

Cookie Sheet

Silpat Liner

Double Boiler (I use a stainless steel bowl and wide saucepan)

To begin, melt the bittersweet chocolate in a double boiler ?(after you’;ve broken it into small pieces). ?You don’;t need any special equipment to do this just put a metal bowl inside a pan of simmering water. You don’;t need much water in the panaccent pillow case baby, just a couple of inches. Stir the chocolate until it’;s smooth and melted. DO NOT get water into the chocolate, it will ruin it.

Using a spatula spread the melted chocolate onto the silpat lined cookie sheet. Get as even of a coat as possible.

Put in the fridge until completely hardened.

Meanwhile, place the candy canes in a plastic bag and smash with a rolling pin until broken into small pieces.

Chop the white chocolate into small pieces. ?Melt in the double boiler the same way you did the bittersweet chocolate.

Remove from heat and stir in the 2 C of rice krispie cereal.

If the bittersweet chocolate is completely chilled, remove it from the fridge and spread the white chocolate/rice krispie mixture on top. Be careful not to mix the chocolate layer into the white chocolate layer. ?Spread mixture evenly.

Sprinkle crushed candy canes on top. ?Press lightly into the white chocolate.

Refrigerate until cold. ?Break into pieces.

As the kitchen is one of the most used rooms in a home creating a stylish and practical décor is essential if you're going to make your kitchen warm and inviting. Depending on your colour scheme you can use tartan fabrics which are bold on colour, go for a more subdued look with neutrals or opt to stay within your comfort zone and use mid-tone ranges and hues.
