Ingredients
For the chocolate layer
  • 1 cup chocolate chips I used semi-sweet
  • 1/4 tsp butter
For the mint chocolate layer
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 5 drops green food colouring (I used inexpensive food colouring from the grocery store - if you're using expensive paste you'll probably just need one drop)
Instructions
  1. Mix chocolate chips and 1/4 tsp butter in a small bowl. Microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring well in between, until completely melted (this will probably take 1.5 - 2 minutes). Don't let it scorch. Set aside.
  2. In a second bowl, combine the white chocolate chips, 1 tsp butter, peppermint extract and food colouring. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then microwave in 15 second intervals, until the chips break down into a paste and you can mix it. They will NOT melt - just become pasty. Don't let them burn.
  3. Spread green paste out on parchment paper. Top with melted chocolate. Refrigerate until solid - probably 1-2 hours.
  4. Break into pieces and enjoy! :) Store in refrigerator for best texture.
