This weekend I made Martha Stewart's peppermint bark. I love how festive and pretty it came out, and it just takes three ingredients: white chocolate, peppermints, and puffed rice cereal (Rice Krispies - duh). I was intrigued with the addition of Rice Krispies as I had never seen that in a peppermint bark recipe, and I really think it adds something unexpected to the treat.Ingredients for Martha Stewart's Peppermint Bark, makes 36 small pieces:
-1 pound white chocolate, chopped (not chips)
-2 cups puffed rice cereal (Rice Krispies)
-7.5 ounces of hard peppermint candy, unwrapped
To begin, take your unwrapped peppermints, and place in a resealable plastic bag, then wrap in a dish towel. Now take a roll pin and beat those peppermints into small pieces (think of an ex-boyfriend or something).
After your chocolate is melted, remove from heat and stir in puffed rice cereal. Then spread thinly on the prepared baking sheet.
