Peppermint bark - suburbangrandma.comChocolate Peppermint Bark is lots of fun to make, and a great idea for holiday gift giving.

My daughter passed her recipe to me to try out, and I am sharing a slightly modified version with you.

I know you will love the creamy, yet crunchy, texture, with a minty refreshing flavor.

Christmas Peppermint Bark – Recipe

Christmas Peppermint Bark – Recipe


  • 24 oz dark chocolate chips (12 oz for a thinner layer)
  • 18 oz white chocolate chips (12 oz for a thinner layer)
  • 1 cup chipped candy canes, or peppermint hard candy


  1. Unwrap the candy canes, or peppermint hard candy.
  2. Place them in a Ziploc bag,  and zip it closed.
  3. Place the bag between two kitchen towels, on a counter top, or any had surface.
  4. Using a meat mallet, or a rolling pin, break up the peppermint candy to medium size (raisins size or larger) chunks.
  5. Set aside.
  6. Line a 11 x 18 inch cookie sheet with aluminum foil, and grease it lightly with butter , or cooking spray.
  7. Melt the dark chocolate and spread it evenly over the bottom of the cookie sheet (use a knife, or the back of a spoon, for easier handling).
  8. Place it in the fridge to cool completely, to firm up.
  9. Melt the white chocolate.
  10. Save 1/4  of the chipped peppermint candy, for topping.
  11. Fold in the rest of the peppermint chips into the melted white chocolate, to incorporate evenly.
  12. Pour the white chocolate/peppermint chips, over the cooled dark chocolate.
  13. Smooth it out.
  14. Sprinkle the saved peppermint chips over the top of the white chocolate.
  15. Press gently with your hand, to slightly embed them into the white chocolate.
  16. Place the pan back in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or longer, so the chocolate bark sets firmly.
  17. Once set, using your hands, break up the Chocolate Peppermint Bark into uneven pieces,  and store in an airtight container (I peeled off the foil paper,used a knife to pre-cut the bottom of the dark chocolate, for easier handling)
