Ingredients

  • 100g dark chocolate, broken into chunks
  • 1 x 100g Aero Mint bar, broken into chunks
  • 150g Belgian white chocolate, broken into chunks
  • a few drops of green food colouring gel
  • 50g Aero Peppermint Bubbles, roughly chopped

Step by step

Get ahead
The bark will keep for 2 weeks in an airtight container, or packed into a gift box/wrapped with cellophane.
  1. Melt the dark chocolate together with the Aero chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. Stir occasionally, then once all the chocolate has melted leave to cool for 5 minutes, and line a large baking tray with baking paper. Melt the white chocolate in the same way, then stir in enough green food colouring to give you a minty colour. Cool for 3 minutes.
  2. Dollop alternating spoonfuls of the two chocolates onto the tray in roughly a 20 x 25cm rectangle, then use the end of a wooden spoon to swirl the chocolates together. If there are any gaps in your slab, tilt the tray a little to allow the chocolate to fill them.
  3. Scatter the Aero Bubbles over the top. Leave somewhere cool to set.
    Tip
    Letting the chocolate cool before pouring means it won’t spread too thinly – you need it to be thick enough to hold your toppings, and break into sturdy chunks for eating.

    Whatever you’re sprinkling over your bark, start with the biggest chunks and work down to the smallest for the best coverage, ensuring every bite will be crammed with goodies.

    Unless you’re in a hurry, avoid putting your chocolate in the fridge to set, as there’s a danger it’ll ‘bloom’ (develop unattractive white patches). Choose another cool place instead for best results.
  4. Leave whole for drama, or break into large shards (easier for packaging as a gift).
