St. Patrick's Day Peppermint Bark



If you are looking for a quick and easy way to incorporate green into a dessert, this recipe is the right one for you. After all, we don't all have hours to wait for cupcakes to cool before frosting, to elaborately decorate sugar cutout cookies shaped like shamrocks or even to bake cookies at all. This simple dessert will help get your family into the St. Patrick's Day spirit in no time without sacrificing any delicious-ness. 



You'll need:
white chocolate chips
chocolate chips
heath pieces (optional)
mint extract
green food coloring



Melt your white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds at a time in the microwave. Stir in between each 30 second interval. I used about 1/2 a bag of chocolate chips because there are only two of us here to eat this bark.



Next, stir in your greed food coloring until your white chocolate looks green enough! Pour it out onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Spread it out with the back of a spoon into the desired size. Stick it into the freezer while you work with the chocolate chips.




Repeat the process with the chocolate chips.


I stuck some chocolate chips and the heath bar bits into my food chopper to try and mix them, but the chips didn't break up at all. So, this step is clearly optional.


Sprinkle your toppings over your melted chocolate layers. Then, pop the whole thing into the freezer for a bit to help it harden.



When your chocolate has solidified, break it into pieces, share and enjoy!
Yes, it's that easy!
