I've always loved the sweet and salty combination of chocolate and pretzels, and the fresh and creamy combination of chocolate and mint. This combines all of those in one irresistible and totally easy to make holiday treat. —Savour

  • Serves 6
Ingredients
  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • .5 teaspoons peppermint extract

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. In a microwave proof bowl, microwave the semisweet chocolate for 30 seconds, stir, and then microwave in 15 second intervals, stirring between each bout, until the pieces are melted. Mix in peppermint extract, then stir in pretzels. Spread as thinly as possible onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and pop in the freezer for 15-30 minutes or until firm.
  2. Repeat the microwaving process with the white chocolate. Quickly spread the white chocolate on top of the hardened chocolate pretzel mixture, and sprinkle crushed candy canes on top. Let cool until firm, and using a sharp knife, break into pieces.

I'm a Los Angeles based home cook with a full time job and 2 young kids, so my recipes tend to be accessible to busy people. I firmly believe that anyone can cook good, everyday meals from scratch with sufficient tools and encouragement, and I try to create meals that are delicious, wholesome and not too intimidating. Most of my favorite recipes tend to be twists on a classic dish that makes it new and exciting.

    I made this today & can definitely recommend the recipe. I would never have thought of putting mint chocolate & pretzels together. The pretzels provide a little salty/buttery flavor, with the mint chocolate in the forefront. Mine didn't look quite as pretty as yours, but tasted wonderful.

    I love this! I'm always on the lookout for "barks" without nuts and this looks perfect! Saved!
