Mint Chocolate Slab

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Line an 11x7x1-1/2-inch baking pan with parchment paper*, allowing edges to extend beyond the edges of the pan.
  2. Wipe off any water from bottom of bowl with chocolate mixture, (see Tempered Chocolate, receipe below). Pour about 1/2 of the Tempered Chocolate into pan; spread chocolate to edges of pan. Arrange peppermint patties in pan, leaving a 1-inch border. Evenly spoon on remaining chocolate, spreading to cover candies. Top with additional assorted candies. Let stand at room temperature until firm (about 1 hour).
  3. Lift candy from pan with parchment. Cut or break into pieces. Makes 60 pieces.

From the Test Kitchen

*Test Kitchen Tip:

To line pan with parchment, invert pan. Lay a piece of parchment paper over the bottom of the pan (make sure that the piece is large enough that the edges will extend beyond the edges of the pan). Make creases at pan edges. Remove paper and make folds along the creases. Invert pan right side up. Place paper in pan.

Tempered Chocolate

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Chop semisweet, bittersweet, dark, or milk chocolate. Place in a 2-quart bowl with shortening; stir to coat chocolate with shortening. Pour very warm tap water (110 degrees F) in a very large bowl to a depth of 1 inch. Place the bowl with chocolate inside the bowl of warm water (water should cover bottom half of bowl of chocolate). Adjust water level as necessary (be careful not splash any water into the chocolate). Stir the chocolate mixture constantly with a rubber spatula until completely melted and smooth (this should take 20 to 25 minutes). When the water cools, remove the bowl containing the chocolate. Discard the cool water and add warm water and continue as above until all the chocolate is melted.

From the Test Kitchen

Why Temper Chocolate:

Tempering chocolate ensures that the cocoa butter in the chocolate melts slowly. If melted too quickly or at too high of a temperature, the chocolate will "bloom" (have white streaks running through it) when it sets up. Tempered chocolate keeps its shiny appearance and smooth texture after it cools and sets up.
