Ingredients

  • 22 ounces white chocolate
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate
  • 1-2 teaspoons mint extract not peppermint extract
  • Green food coloring

Instructions

  • Using plastic wrap, line a 8x8-inch baking pan. Set aside.
  • Melt 16oz white chocolate in top of double boiler over simmering water, stirring consistently & scraping down sides using spatula to ensure chocolate doesn't scorch.
  • Pour white chocolate mixture into the lined baking pan & smooth over the chocolate with a spatula, creating an even surface. Set aside to rest.
  • Applying the same double boiler method, melt dark chocolate, then drizzle the warm, melted dark chocolate over the white chocolate mixture in parallel stripes.
  • Applying the same double boiler method, melt 6oz white chocolate, then pour white chocolate in a large bowl, stirring in green food coloring & mint extract, until desired coloring achieved.
  • Drizzle melted green mint chocolate over the white chocolate, in parallel fashion to the dark chocolate stripes.
  • Depress tip of a knife (or toothpick) near bottom of the pan & from one edge of the pan to the other, draw perpendicular lines through the chocolate creating a marbled tiger pattern.
  • Allow candy to rest for 30-45 minutes, or until it begins to firm, then cut into squares.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour then serve.

Notes

NOTE1: If either bark needs to be thinned, use 1 teaspoon shortening to melted chocolate.
NOTE2: If not using double boiler method, melt chocolate in 30-second intervals in the microwave on 50% power, stirring after each round, until smooth.
