Thin Mint Bark

Makes: 12 servings
Serving size: 1 ounce
Prep 20 mins Microwave 2 mins to 3 mins Chill 30 mins
Thin Mint Bark
Ingredients
  • 9  chocolate wafer cookies
  • 6  ounces  vanilla-flavor candy coating, chopped (1 cup)
  • 3  ounces  milk chocolate pieces (1/2 cup)
  • 2  teaspoons  shortening
  • 3  ounces  green mint-flavor baking pieces (1/2 cup)
Directions

1. Line a large baking sheet with heavy foil; grease foil. Arrange cookies in a single layer on the foil.

2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl combine half of the candy coating, the milk chocolate baking pieces, and 1 teaspoon of the shortening. Microwave, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until melted and smooth, stirring every 30 seconds.

3. In a second microwave-safe bowl combine the remaining candy coating, the mint-flavor baking pieces, and the remaining 1 teaspoon shortening. Microwave, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until melted and smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. Drop spoonfuls of milk chocolate and mint mixtures over the cookies, alternating colors, and covering the cookies. Using a narrow spatula, swirl the two mixtures together.

4. Chill candy about 30 minutes or until firm. Use foil to lift candy. Cut or break into pieces.
