Pecan Peppermint Bark

Submitted by: Liz Moody

Blogger Liz Moody shares a sweet, crunchy treat that is the perfect festive holiday snack – Pecan Peppermint Bark!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pecan halves or pecan pieces
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup crushed peppermint candy canes (crushed in a bag with a rolling pin)
  • 16 ounces semi-sweet chocolate

Method

  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, toast the pecans until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add maple syrup and toss to coat; cook until syrup is thickened, about 1 more minute.
  3. Transfer to a parchment-covered pan, spreading out so they’re not touching each other. Let cool completely (this helps them from being sticky).
  4. Melt the chocolate in a microwave using 30 second increments or in a double boiler.
  5. Pour into the middle of a parchment-lined pan, then spread until about 1/4″ thick.
  6. Place candy canes and pecans evenly over chocolate layer.
  7. Let cool at room temperature at least 4 hours, or until hard, before breaking into pieces.
