Peppermint Bark

It’s Tips for Tuesday!

This week’s tip:  Make your own peppermint bark!

Peppermint bark is super simple and quick to make, and is a great holiday gift or tasty addition to your dessert spread.

The recipe is below. Enjoy!


Peppermint Bark

15 pieces

Peppermint Bark


  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 1/2 candy canes (1/4 cup once crushed)
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (ensure it will fit into the freezer).
  • Crush the candy canes and ensure you are left with non-uniform pieces (there should be a mixture of dust and small to medium pieces). To do this, place in a food storage bag and crush (I use a meat tenderizer). Since candy canes can be different sizes, ensure your crushed candy canes measure about 1/4 cup.
  • Place the chocolate chips in a double broiler over medium heat (don't let the water boil underneath). Melt the chocolate and stir as needed. Once melted, remove from the heat and stir in 1/2 of the crushed candy canes.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture onto the parchment paper and smooth out evenly to 1/4 inch thickness. Evenly sprinkle the remaining crushed candy cane on top. Place the pan in the freezer for 15 minutes to harden.
  • Remove and break up into desired sizes and shapes. Store away from heat or direct sunlight in a sealed container. It also stores well in the fridge until ready to eat. You can make this several days ahead.
