Peppermint Bark Recipe - White chocolate, mint extract and candy canes

At the start of the holiday season, I went out and bought a tin of Peppermint Bark from our local bakery. But it is so overpriced when you buy it pre-made. So I decided to make my own. It’s the easiest thing in the world!

Want to know how? Well here you go.


2 C white chocolate chips
1 tsp mint extract
2 candy canes

Simply melt the white chocolate in a bowl in your microwave. Do it for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between each go, until it is perfectly melted.

Next, add in your mint extract and stir, stir, stir!

Take a parchment paper lined tray and dump the melted chocolate out, spreading it all around in a thin layer.

Meanwhile, use a rolling pin or some other heavy object to crush your two candy canes into small pieces. Sprinkle the candy canes all over the still-warm chocolate.

Throw the whole pan in the fridge and let it get hard (it doesn’t take long!).

Remove the pan and then use your hands to gently push on it until it cracks into lots of smaller pieces. Don’t make them TOO small, though!

That’s it!

Enjoy this festive treat and tell your friends just how easy it is!
