Peppermint Bark

Your photo should meet the following requirements:

  • It must be in jpg/jpeg format

  • It must be have a file size of less than 1Mb
  • Focus on the food: Use good lighting and take a close - up shot.


1 bag mini chocolate chips or mega chunks
10 oz white chocolate
1/2 tsp peppermint extract, divided
mini chips (optional)
candy canes


Line a cookie sheet or similar pan with parchment paper or non-stick foil.

If you plan to top with candy cane bits, put unwrapped candy canes in a baggie and use a rolling pin, veggie can, mallet, etc. to break them up into small bits. You'll need to have these ready ahead of time. Kids love to help with this part, so put them to work!

Melt the chocolate chips/chunks in a double-boiler* (best) or in the microwave, stirring frequently. Once melted, add 1/4 tsp peppermint extract and stir. Pour into the pan and spread to desired thickness (I aim for 1/4 inch thick). Put the pan in the refrigerator to chill for at least 5 minutes.

In a clean pan/bowl, melt the white chocolate in a double-boiler (best) or in the microwave, stirring frequently. Once melted, add 1/4 tsp peppermint extract and stir. Remove the pan from the refrigerator and pour the melted white chocolate on top and spread to cover the dark chocolate. Sprinkle on peppermint bits and/or mini chips.

Chill for 2 hours to set (though it may be ready sooner than that). Break into pieces. Store in the refrigerator, as it has a fairly low melting temp. It never lasts very long at our house, so blooming isn't an issue.


This is a super easy recipe and VERY good. I use Enjoy Life Foods chocolate mini chips or mega chunks and Baker's white chocolate.


Use any chocolate or candy coating that is safe for your allergy set.

It's difficult to find milk and soy-free white chocolate, so if you need to be milk and soy-free, you can make this with only safe dark chocolate and the crushed candy canes on top.
