I did it! I baked my way through the whole year. The final challenge for Reddit’s 52 Weeks of Baking is peppermint. I couldn’t come up with a truly baked food that involves peppermint, or even one that would be improved by the addition of peppermint, so I went the sorta cheater route and made this peppermint bark. I put some peppermint sticks in a sandwich bag and beat the hell out of them with the end of my rolling pin. Then I melted a 3 oz bar of 70% cacao chocolate in a bowl in the microwave. I poured the chocolate into a pan covered with parchment paper and quickly sprinkled the smaller peppermint pieces onto the chocolate. Let it cool for a few hours in the fridge and it’s peppermint bark o’clock. The dark chocolate and peppermint go really well together. Robbie gives it his picky sweets eater seal of approval.
