Peppermint Bark is a holiday classic!
Such a festive and yummy combo!
What’s not to love about dark chocolate, white chocolate and peppermint?
Plus it’s gluten-free, nut-free, egg-free and grain-free satisfying a number of food restrictions and preferences…
And with just 3 ingredients it couldn’t be easier to make!
As a little background….
If you’ve been following me a while, you know that Holiday treats are a big deal in our family with many cookies and treats being made year after year.
But we always like to try a few new ones each year.
I’ve been wanting to make this bark ever since I first tried it at a friend’s house a few years back…. and I’m so glad I finally did!
This peppermint bark is a keeper!
And it’s beyond easy to make!
The directions on the printable recipe below look long, because I’m giving all my tips about melting chocolate.
First melt the dark chocolate and pour it onto a prepared baking sheet, using a spatula to spread an even chocolate layer.
I used a double boiler to melt the chocolate, stirring frequently and letting the chocolate melt slowly until super smooth.
It takes about 5 minutes so don’t rush the process. If the chips are melted on too high heat, they will “over cook” and harden a bit.
Let the chocolate layer cool either outside if it’s cold enough or in your freezer.
Meantime, melt the white chocolate the same way.
White chocolate seizes up quicker than dark chocolate, so just be sure heat is on low and stir frequently.
Pour the white chocolate on the cooled dark chocolate layer.
Meanwhile crush the candy canes. I found it easier to place them in a ziploc bag and roll a rolling pin over them.
Sprinkle crushed candy canes over the warm white chocolate, gently pressing into the chocolate.
Let cool and set for at least an hour.
Break into pieces and enjoy!
Definitely going to be added to the yearly repertoire of holiday goodies!
