White Chocolate Peppermint Bark

Filed under: Uncategorized — jyeger @ 7:35 pm


Yum!  Love this stuff!  I planned on putting the bark into a cute little container and decorating it, but my hubby ate it all!  OK, so I helped a little. 🙂  Good thing I took this pic earlier in the week.  This is so simple to make!

Peppermint Bark

  • 1 pkg crushed candy canes (yields 1 cup)
  • 2 lbs White Chocolate
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract

Place candy candes in a plastic bag and smash into 1/4″ chunks or smaller.  Melt the chocolate in a double boiler (I have a make-shift double boiler…I use a regular pan and put a metal bowl on top of it).  Combine candy cane chunks with chocolate.  Add peppermint extract.  Pour mixture onto a cookie sheet layered with wax paper or parchment paper.  Put cookie sheet into refrigerator for 45 min or until firm.  Remove from frige and break into pieces.
