Christmas Chocolate Peppermint Bark Recipe

Peppermint Chocolate Christmas Bark

I absolutely love holiday desserts. There’s just something about homemade sweets – especially around the holidays. And as much as I love to bake, some of my favorite dessert recipes are the easiest ones! This peppermint bark recipe has quickly become one of my favorites! Dark chocolate, white chocolate, and peppermint all in the same dish? It makes for the perfect Christmas-time treat!

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 bag of dark chocolate chips
  • 1 bag of white chocolate chips
  • 6 peppermint candy canes

Steps to Perfection:

  1. Start by lining the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch pan with wax paper
  2. Place candy canes in a zip lock bag and use a hammer to crush
  3. Melt dark chocolate chips (stove-top or microwave)
  4. Spread melted dark chocolate chips evenly on bottom of pan
  5. Put pan in the freezer for 20 minutes
  6. Melt white chocolate chips (stove-top or microwave), and pull pan out of freezer
  7. Mix half of the crushed candy canes with the melted white chocolate
  8. Spread the melted white chocolate over the layer of hardened dark chocolate.
  9. Top evenly with the remaining crushed candy canes
  10. Place in freezer for another 20 minutes
  11. Pull pan out of freezer, & use a spatula to separate the bark from the pan; you will have a solid sheet
  12. Break into pieces and serve as desired!

  • It’s been a long week, but there’s nothing that a little coffee and relaxation can’t fix, right? ☕️❤️
Happy weekend, friends! ✨
  • There’s just something about this time of year.
The twinkle of the Christmas tree, flames from all of the delicious candles dancing around, a hardy homemade dinner baking in the oven — and the subtle sense that a new beginning is just around the corner.
Yes, this time of the year is my favorite. And I hope that I won’t take a single moment of it for granted 🎄
  • Sunday nights mean lighting a few candles, and curling up with a hot beverage, snuggled up next to my hubby. It really is the little things. ☕️🌿
What’s your favorite Sunday evening ritual? ✨
Our life has been anything but conventional. Getting married at 19 and 20, multiple cross-country moves, embracing our little family of two knowing that we should be a family of three and chasing a toddler around right now.
But as unpredictable as our journey’s been, I am so thankful for this man and the life we’re building together. Here’s to the lifetime of Thanksgivings we have ahead of us, handsome ❤️🦃
  • We had our first snow of the season, our Christmas tree is up, and I’ve switched to drinking hot coffee — ‘tis the season, y’all! ☕️❄️
We’re headed out to the grocery store to shop for Thanksgiving this week. It’s just Craig and I this year, but it’ll be my first time putting together Thanksgiving dinner, so wish me luck! 🥘🦃
What’s on your turkey day menu, friend? ❤️
  • Stand firm; hold fast.
This season I’m learning to come back to the basics and focus on my foundation. For me, this starts with gratitude.
When chaos inevitably breaks loose, taking a few moments to count my blessings has made all the difference.
