These little Peppermint Bark Gingerbread Men are very cute and very tasty! I meant to make these last year and never got round to it but luckily my peppermint extract was still in date! You could make these either in shaped moulds such as Snowflakes, Christmas Trees or even just line a baking tray with some grease proof paper and pour the chocolate in there and break into shards when set. I picked up this sweet Gingerbread Men mould from Poundworld and have even used it to make shaped icecubes, perfect for your Bailey’s while you decorate the Christmas Tree or wrapping up the presents.
They are so easy to make and you could have these Peppermint Bark Gingerbread Men along with your Hot Chocolate or you could wrap them up all prettily and give it to a chocolate lover for an edible gift. Although I decorated mine with star sprinkles you could decorate them however you wanted, you could use those teeny tiny marshmallows that you can buy in the bakery section, red sprinkles or even holly and berry shaped sprinkles to keep in with the Christmas theme.
Once the first layer is set repeat the process for the second layer with the white chocolate. I used Christmas star sprinkles on the top layer instead of the candy canes. Place back into the fridge so the top layer can set (making sure that the end of the mould is away from the fridge door so when it’s shut it won’t scrunch up the mould making your Gingerbread Men go wonky. Yep, that happened to me!)
