If you like Andes Mints, you will love this Mint Chocolate Bark!
- 1 package chocolate bark
- 2/3 package white chocolate bark
- 3-6 teaspoons mint extract (I used McCormick)
- green food coloring (I used Betty Crocker Gel colors)
- Melt barks in separate pots. Do not thin with shortening or oil. For the chocolate bark, once melted, add 1-3 teaspoons on mint extract to taste. For the white bark, add 1-3 teaspoons of mint extract and green food coloring. If either bark needs to be thinned a bit, you can now add a teaspoon of shortening. Spread chocolate bark out on a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet. Next, drop/drizzle green bark over top of the chocolate bark. Use a toothpick and drag through chocolate to swirl together. Let chocolate cool completely then break/cut into pieces.
Always test your extract and food coloring on a small portion of your chocolate, not all blends do well with chocolate. Water based flavors and coloring will seize up your chocolate and ruin it.
I like to melt my chocolate in mini crock pots-great temperature control.
