Peppermint Bark Recipe

We got this recipe in an e-mail and it sounds really good.  I haven't tried it yet, but I wanted to share it with you in time for the holidays.

  • 12 oz. of high-quality white chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips
  • 5 regular sized candy canes, crushed up
  • 3-4 drops of Peppermint
1 Break up peppermint candy into little pieces. Melt the chocolate according to the manufacturer's instructions. Once melted, add the peppermint oil and stir.
2 Pour the melted chocolate out onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and spread out with a spatula or wooden spoon. Sprinkle the peppermint candy chunks on to the chocolate and gently press them in with yours hands.
3 Place in the freezer for 5 minutes or until hardened. Break into pieces and serve or store in the fridge in an airtight container.

Great gift for friends, teachers hair dressers, neighbors, anyone you'd like to give a sweet treat to.

  1. I made this today for a Hanukkah party. I used a combination of semi sweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate candy bars and milk chocolate. I added the milk chocolate just to tone down some of th very dark chocolate that I used. I used small candy canes. The only problem was that I kind of shttered the candy canes, but it looked pretty. Everyone at the party loved it.
