Williams-Sonoma White Chocolate Peppermint Bark is amazing.
It’s also FREAKIN’ expensive.
I’ve tried recreating it a gazillion times…each time it was close, but not quite right.
That is…until I came across this recipe in a Food Network Magazine and I realize I was missing a very important ingredient…
This is not to be confused with peppermint extract. Extract can make your chocolate seize (aka get really freakin’ hard.) Also, if you don’t get Food Network Magazine and you love to cook, you need it. It’s like where all great recipes go to be found. But I digress.
So I followed the recipe to the letter and I now have my own version of Williams-Sonoma White Chocolate Peppermint Bark.
