Peppermint bark is a classic holiday treat that combines rich chocolate with the refreshing taste of peppermint. It's the perfect treat to make and share with loved ones during the holidays. 


How to make your own peppermint bark, you'll need:

  • Dark or semi-sweet chocolate
  • White chocolate
  • Crushed candy canes

Melt the dark or semi-sweet chocolate and spread it onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Let it cool until firm. 

In the meantime, melt the white chocolate and stir in crushed candy canes for added crunch and flavor. Pour the white chocolate mixture over the hardened dark chocolate and spread it evenly. Sprinkle crushed candy canes on top. Allow the bark to fully harden before breaking it into pieces. Package them in festive bags or gift boxes to share with friends and family.
