I thought this recipe was great, and people loved it! I followed it the first time to a 'T', and it came out wonderfully! No separated layers or overpowering peppermint flavor. I agree the key is to use the higher-quality chocolates, such as Ghirardelli, which I used for both the semisweet and white. Also be sure to stir often when melting, making sure not to overheat the chocolate, and take it right off the heat as soon as it's melted. I used candy canes, too. My only complaint would be that after using the white chocolate as the top layer, It was virtually impossible to spread it evenly, and I ended up with dark and white swirls. It still looked pretty and it tasted fantastic. I'm trying something a little different with a second batch now, whereas I sprinkled crushed candy canes on the parchment paper first, poured the white chocolate over them for the bottom layer, and then drizzled the melted semisweet chocolate on top, finishing with more crushed candy canes. I think either way it will be delicious.
