What do you need to make Peppermint Chocolate Graham Delights
Milk Chocolate: Ghirardelli milk chocolate wafers work great, offering a smooth melt and quick drying. Milk chocolate morsels or dark chocolate wafers are also suitable.
White Chocolate: Opt for Ghirardelli white chocolate wafers for a smooth melt and delicious taste. Alternatively, use almond bark or wafers for a reliable result.
Graham Crackers: The delicious base for this recipe, and you can even try it with Chocolate Grahams for a twist.
Candy Canes: Peppermint candy canes or starlight mints work wonderfully. Add festive sprinkles if desired.
How to make Peppermint Chocolate Graham Delights
Begin by melting dark or milk chocolate wafers in one bowl.
Cut or break graham crackers into squares and line a large cookie tray with parchment paper. Alternatively, use pre-broken “fresh stacks” of graham crackers.
Dip one end of each graham cracker into the melted milk chocolate, coating half of the square. Place on parchment paper and repeat with the remaining squares. Allow them to set until firm.
Melt white chocolate, then dip the opposite end of each graham cracker into the white chocolate and sprinkle with crushed candy canes. Allow them to set at room temperature or in the fridge until the chocolate is firm.
Enjoy immediately or transfer to an airtight container, jar, or ziplock bag.
Additional Tips & Tricks:
For a quicker chocolate set, place the dipped graham crackers in the fridge for approximately 15 minutes.
Once set, transfer them to an airtight container or jar and store at room temperature. If you prefer a colder texture, refrigerate.
Crush candy canes by placing them in a plastic bag and rolling a rolling pin over them.
Dark chocolate enthusiasts can easily substitute it for milk chocolate.
Experiment with different bases—try chocolate graham crackers, saltine crackers, or Ritz crackers for a unique twist.
