Askinosie Peppermint Bark
Springfield, Missouri may be the birthplace of Route 66, but the town is also the home of Askinosie Chocolate, a small batch, bean to bar chocolate manufacturer who sources 100% of their cocoa beans directly from farmers throughout the world. Although the company specializes in single origin chocolate bars (whose beans can be traced to the source), Askinosie also makes a truly scrumptious peppermint bark of single origin dark chocolate, buttery white chocolate, and all natural crushed peppermint candy.
Askinosie Peppermint Bark is made of cocoa beans, organic sugar, cocoa butter (made in the Askinosie factory), goat’s milk powder, and all-natural peppermint (sweetened and colored by beet juice) and is only available during the holiday season. Sweet – but not too sweet – Askinosie Peppermint Bark is “adult” peppermint bark or for those who truly appreciate dark chocolate. The company often sells out before the holidays arrive so place your order early. The peppermint bark comes in two sizes:
Peppermint Bark Small: 150 grams (5.3 ounces) of peppermint bark nestled in a balsa basket inside a clear plastic sleeve. $15.
The peppermint bark can be ordered on-line through the company’s website: www.askinosie.com. All orders over $59 are shipped free.
