Peppermint Bark

Peppermint Bark is a delightful confection, perfect for the holiday season or anytime you want to indulge in a sweet treat. It is generally composed of two layers - a bottom layer of rich, dark chocolate, and a top layer of creamy white chocolate, both infused with a hint of peppermint oil for that distinct, refreshing taste. Small pieces of crushed peppermint candy are usually sprinkled on top for added flavor and texture. The combination of textures from the smooth chocolate and crunchy candy pieces along with the cool and sweet flavor makes Peppermint Bark a unique and loved dessert.

Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Peppermint Bark expire?
Peppermint bark, when unopened and stored in a cool and dry place, can keep for about 3 to 6 months. Once opened, it's best to consume within 2 weeks for optimal freshness and texture. If frozen, a peppermint bark can last up to a year while maintaining its quality.
How do you tell if Peppermint Bark is bad?
To identify if your peppermint bark has gone bad, pay attention to changes in colour, smell, and taste. Good quality peppermint bark has a rich brown and white color, a strong mint-chocolate smell, and a fresh, peppermint-chocolate taste. If it looks discolored, smells foul, has a weird aftertaste or forms white or grayish spots which are a sign of mold, then it's time to throw it out.
Tips for storing Peppermint Bark to extend shelf life
• Make sure to store in a cool, dry and dark place away from heat sources. High temperatures can melt the chocolate and cause a mess. • If it opened, tightly close the peppermint bark in its original packaging or move it to a resealable plastic bag to maintain its freshness. • To store it longer, freeze it! Just wrap it securely in foil, followed by a zip-top plastic bag with the maximum air removed before sealing. When ready to eat, let it thaw at room temperature.
