Simple Peppermint Bark

Dec 14, 2023

I love peppermint bark during the holidays. This recipe is super easy and comes together in about 10 minutes.


  • 1 bag dark chocolate chips
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 6 candy canes, crushed


  1. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper
  2. Put the dark chocolate chips in a microwave save bowl and add 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil.  Do the same with the white chocolate chips in another bowl.  Microwave the chocolate chips in 20 second increments, stirring well until melted and smooth.  Stir in 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract to each bowl of melted chocolate.
  3. Pour the white melted chocolate onto the sheet pan and smooth into a single layer. Pour the dark chocolate over the white chocolate and smooth.  Use a knife or skewer to swirl the chocolates together. Top with the crushed candy canes and sprinkle with sea salt.
  4. Transfer to the refrigerator for 1 hour. Once set cut or break the bark into pieces to serve.

Takes 10 minutes (plus 1 hour to set)
