INSTRUCTIONS: 

  1. Line a 9×12 pan with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate in a microwave – cook 30 seconds in a heat-proof bowl, stir and repeat until you have a smooth consistency.
  3. Pour the melted dark chocolate on the parchment paper, spread the chocolate using a spatula or hitting the pan against the countertop until it is about 1/3″ thick.
  4. Melt the white chocolate, using the steps above. After the chocolate is smooth, pour it on top of the dark chocolate – trying to make the layers the same thickness. This works best with a spatual.  I even made swirls with the spatual to pull up some of the dark chocolate for a nice design!
  5. Unwrap the peppermints and put them into a heavy duty ziplock bag. Using a meat tenderizer or heavy object, crush the mints and then sprinkle on top of the soft chocolate.
