If you like Andes Mints, you will love this Mint Chocolate Bark!
It’s time for the Chocolate Party! I have to tell you I was excited about this months combination. Chocolate and mint. So many possibilities. Then Thanksgiving came along and all the sudden, I was behind. On playing with this combination. I waited till the last minute. Yes, I was also that kid in school that would wait till the night before to write a 20 page term paper. It was no big deal, I had an idea in my head, it sounded so good. I just had to make it, take photos, blah, blah, blah. It was a disaster.
I had some other peppermint things I wanted to make later this month but, I just didn’t want peppermint for this. Everyone’s dipping candy canes in chocolate this time of year. I was completely lacking inspiration.
Then I stumbled onto Caramel Potatoes blog. And her Thin Mint Cookie Bark. She used special chocolate chips to make it. So easy! But I didn’t have the chips. But I did have lots of chocolate!
This is just a sample of my stash. This time of year, I have a whole cabinet devoted to to it. Candy Coating or Bark, is easier to work with than Chocolate Chips when it comes to candy making. It’s already been tempered to harden back up after being melted, just like a candy bar.
I was all set. Let me tell you, this Bark tastes just like an Andes Mint. Just like it! My taste testers were asking for more. The words “this is some good sh**” were heard. And so easy to make.
