Peppermint Bark

One of my favorite holiday treats (that I indulge in all year long.) Not just for the flavor, but for it’s festivity! It’s also probably the easiest to prepare of all the Christmas treats.

I find that using the mint flavored chocolate chips instead of peppermint extract gives it a more delicate flavor of mint, rather than that pungent “just brushed your teeth” zing. It’s perfect for topping your bowl of ice cream or decorating a cheesecake – ’tis the season to drizzle everything with peppermint bark! Enjoy!

Peppermint Bark 1

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz. mint chocolate chips
  • 12 oz. white chocolate chips
  • 4 candy canes, crushed
  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Pour your mint chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat in the microwave in increments of 20 seconds, stirring in between until completely melted.
  3. Using a rubber spatula, carefully spread the melted mint chocolate across the parchment paper in a thin layer. Put in the freezer until it’s completely set, about 25 minutes.
  4. Repeat step #3 with the white chocolate chips. Spread the melted white chocolate in a thin layer on top of the mint chocolate. While still melted, generously sprinkle your crushed candy canes over the entire surface of bark.
  5. Place your bark back in freezer until hard, about 25 minutes. Break into a variety different sizes and enjoy!
