I made this with 1/4 tsp peppermint extract only in the chocolate layer, and I thought that much extract alone is entirely too much. I tried a similar recipe with no extract, and it was perfect. If you don't really like peppermint (or the flavor of peppermint extract, for that matter), I STRONGLY recommend omitting the extract altogether. I do like the flavor of the semi-sweet chocolate with the white chocolate. I would give this five stars, but the peppermint extract flavor nearly ruined it for me. Definately five without the extract but three is being generous for the recipe as written. Another helpful hint, it doesn't specify but you need to either use the peppermint on the first layer sparingly or really press it into the semi-sweet chocolate layer. When I cut these, the two layers separated on several, which was pretty aggravating.
