Pepermint Bark Recipe

Each year my kids and I love to make Peppermint Bark together as a family. We deliver some to the local hospital staff as a thank you for all that they do each  year and some to the staff at the nursing home by our house. This year I though I would share our recipe with others and maybe each of you can share some simply holiday love with those close by your home.

The recipe is very simple:


24 oz of white chocolate chips
24 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips-regular or mint flavored
2 boxes of regular candy canes

Microwave Directions:

1. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips for abut 60 seconds, stir and repeat. (you can also melt over the stove, just takes longer and the clean up is a little messier-so I opt for the microwave) 

 2. Place parchment paper (any grocery store carries) on top of a cookie sheet and spread the melted chocolate over the top. Make as even as possible.

3. Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes, or until chocolate is harden and firm. 

4.  Melt White Chocolate chips the same way as step 1.

5. Unwrap 2 boxes of candy canes and crush them into little pieces. You can either stick them in a large zip lock back and crush with a mallet or meat tenderizer or you can place them in the blender on chop for a few seconds and achieve the same results.
6. Place one cup (1 c) of crushed candy canes into the melted white chocolate and stir

 7. Pour the white chocolate mixture onto the hardened dark chocolate.

8. Then sprinkle with as much of the extra candy cane pieces you have left that you want

9. Place in the fridge for 2-21/2 hours or until well set and completely hardened. 

10. Take out of fridge and break apart as desired. 

11. EAT!!!
