Peppermint Bark Recipe

This post is a bit late in the season but still a great treat nonetheless!  I decided to make this now because I had all this leftover candy cane from Christmas when I made my Peppermint Hot Chocolate mixes for my friends. Not knowing what to do with the leftover candy cane, I decided to make Peppermint Bark because it’s super easy to make, looks beautiful, and tastes great!Peppermint Bark

I brought this to work and it all disappeared by the end of the day. And trust me I brought A LOT to work.

Ingredients
Makes 1 1/4 pounds

  • 8oz White Chocholate
  • 8oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate
  • 2 tsp Canola Oil
  • 3/4 cup of Crushed Candy Cane
  1. In a double boiler, melt the semi sweet chocolate. Add 1 tsp of canola oil to make the chocolate less thick and more spreadable. Meanwhile, prepare your 13 x 9 cookie sheet by lining it with wax paper.
  2. Spread the chocolate mixture on the wax paper and sprinkle half of the crushed candy cane mixture on top. Set aside to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate similar to step 1. Mix in some of the remaining crushed candy cane into the white chocolate mixture.
  4. Pour the rest of the white chocolate mixture on top of the semi-sweet chocolate mixture and sprinkle the remaining crushed candy cane on top.
  5. Set it in the freezer for 5 minutes or so and take it out once it’s completely hardened.
  6. Peel the wax paper off from the hardened chocolate and break it into small pieces. I used a cleaver to break my peppermint bark up into even pieces.
