Candy Cane Bark

Tasty dark chocolate and minty peppermint.

I've only met one person who doesn't enjoy this combination...., thus, I thought you all might enjoy another nut-free bark recipe.

Peppermint Bark - SnoWhite

1 C dark chocolate chips
1-2 candy canes

Melt the dark chocolate chips in the microwave (or stove top; your choice).

While the chocolate melts, unwrap and break apart the candy cane(s).

Place the candy cane pieces in your food processor and pulse until broken into small pieces.

When chocolate is melted, pour onto a piece of parchment paper. Then, spread the chocolate out thin and evenly using a spatula.

Then, sprinkle the crushed candy cane over the top of the dark chocolate.

Lightly press the candy cane into the chocolate, so the pieces don't fall off when the chocolate hardens.

Allow the candy cane bark to cool, either on the counter or in the refrigerator. When cool, use a pizza cutter to cut the bark into pieces.

Chill pieces on a plate. This will help make sure the pieces do not stick together when you store the bark.

Store bark in an airtight container, in a cool place (like the fridge).

This recipe is very flexible; make as much or as little as you want.


  1. You are right, there is no such thing as too much bark. Peppermint, chocolate cherry, I want it all. I can't believe how simple this is! delicious

  2. I love the combination of chocolate and peppermint. THANKS!!! for the recipe.

  3. what could be easier, and what wonderful pictures

  4. Yum yum yum. I think I need to do some more baking :)

  5. I love peppermint bark, but have never seen it with all chocolate instead of white chocolate. Sounds divine!

  6. I would be suspicous of that one person you've met who doesn't like this--surely they are not human! Yum Yum Yum!!!

  7. SnoWhite,
    I tried making this yesterday for our twins birthday party, but I couldn't get the chocolate to melt. Wierd, I know. First I put it in the microwave in a glass bowl, but it just clumped up and never got smooth. Then I tried in a double boiler on top of the stove. After 15-20 minutes I gave up. Can you help? How exactly did you get your chocolate smooth. I used Nestle semi-sweet morsels that I recently purchased. I love peppermint bark...HELP!!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
