Peppermint chocolate bark is a delicious treat to create with family and friends during the holidays. We attended this class because we heard that M&J Chocolate Couture would be in San Tan Valley, AZ teaching. We enjoy learning adventures and this was looked sweet. Yes, pun intended.
M&J Chocolate Couture
Thank you for M&J Chocolate Couture for organizing the class and bringing samples. If they are in your area, I suggest attending. Not only did I learn how to make a variety of chocolate barks, but they also shared great baking tips too.
Did you know it is helpful to tape down the parchment paper to the surface (cutting board in this lesson)? So that the paper does not slide off. Can you imagine finally getting the chocolate to correct temperature for the 3rd time because you burned it the other 2 times and then the chocolate falls on the floor? That would be horrible.
106 degrees F is okay but 110 degrees F will burn the chocolate.
Did you know that it is best to tap the chocolate to remove any air bubbles?
The brand of chocolate one uses matters. You will have to take the class to learn why.
The bark can take 5 to 6 hours to set up. Therefore you need to have patience.
Besides a wonderful cooking lesson, I think the best part was sampling the different chocolate barks that M&J Chocolate Couture brought. I stayed after class to have seconds and it was amazing.

Don’t worry; I did not forget to take a photo of the recipe.
Learning to Make Chocolate Bark
I learned that making chocolate bark is not hard; however, I can simply purchase it from M&J Chocolate Couture. What did you learn from this class and the notes I shared above?

I’m not a cook myself, but my boyfriend is ALL about cooking. I love chocolate so this would be an amazing experience for both of us! Your details about the class were great and sparked me to look up local cooking classes in my area!
Wonderful. Let us know how your class goes.
Oh that looks like a lot of fun!
Yes, it was.
Now that’s my kind of adventure.
I may have to make some peppermint bark, that sounds great and if it is easy I should give it a try!
Easy is a relative term. The instructor made it look easy. LOL
I love taking culinary related classes when I travel! This sounds like a really fun one, especially because it’s about chocolate. Thank you for the great suggestion!
We enjoy reading about your culinary travels too.
Oh my goodness! This looks like a very dangerously fun class. Gotta love chocolate.
Completely agree. 🙂
Looks amazing. What a fun idea for the holidays.
It tasted good too!
