Peppermint Bark Snowflakes

Peppermint Bark Snowflakes
(make them any shape you like by using
other molds or filling various cookie cutters.)

You can also just make the recipe on a silicone pan 
liner (such as silpat®), then break into irregular

Wilton's has instructions to make shaped peppermint
bark ~ HERE.

The process is simple using the typical Peppermint Bark recipe. Choose your favorite type of chocolate; milk, semi-sweet, dark etc., white chocolate, crushed peppermint candies (or candy canes), a small amount of vegetable oil, and a few drops of Peppermint extract.

But instead of spreading the chocolate layers on a sheet pan, I  placed the melted chocolate (spiked with a couple of drops of peppermint extract, optional)
in a silicone mold. 

First the dark layer and placed in the refrigerator until firm.

The melted white chocolate is spread on top of the dark layer and sprinkled with larger pieces of crushed peppermint, then back into the fridge to harden. As soon as the chocolate is firm the candy snowflakes are pushed out of the flexible silicone mold with no problem.

 I used a small cookie scoop to portion the melted chocolate into the molds 
with a minimum of mess, that worked really well. 

Something that I found useful was to use a toothpick to swirl through 
the chocolate in the mold to help move it into the mold's details.

Stacked into little cellophane bags, or candy tins these
make a great little gift from your kitchen.  

If you try them I hope you have fun and enjoy them too!

Happy Holidays!
