Ingredients
  • 2 pounds chocolate candy coating (such as Ghirardelli)
  • 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 T mint extract
  • green gel food coloring
Instructions
  1. For the chocolate:
  2. Melt 1 pound chocolate bark according to package directions. When completely melted, pour out onto a wax paper lined baking sheet. Spread chocolate out, but not too thin. Place in freezer while you prepare your filling.
  3. To prepare filling:
  4. In a mixer add condensed milk and 1 cup of powdered sugar. Mix in mint extract. Continue to mix on medium speed until all the ingredients are well incorporated. Add additional powdered sugar one cup at a time until you find your filling is a spreading consistency. You don't want it too stiff or it won't spread. Thin with a tablespoons of milk if necessary. Add in gel food coloring if desired. Once your peppermint filling is ready, spread out over frozen chocolate layer. Return to freezer.
  5. Melt your remaining 1 pound of chocolate and spread over mint layer, making sure to cover the entire surface. Freeze until set. Break into pieces with a knife. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator until ready serve. Bark will stay good for about 1 week.
