Homemade Peppermint Bark


  • Author: Fork Knife Swoon
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: About 1-1/2 pounds of candy 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 12 oz good-quality semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 12 oz good-quality white chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp pure mint extract
  • 3 candy canes, crushed

Instructions

  1. Line a sheet pan or cookie sheet with parchment paper. Meanwhile, melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips according to package directions. When the chocolate is fully melted, stir in the peppermint extract, then use a spatula to carefully spread the chocolate over the parchment paper in an even layer. Set the sheet pan aside to cool, about 10 minutes.
  2. Repeat the melting process with the white chocolate, and pour over the semi-sweet chocolate layer. Sprinkle with the crushed candy cane pieces, gently pressing the candy into the white chocolate. Set the sheet pan aside to set, about an hour.
  3. Gently peel the bark away from the parchment paper and cut it into slices or break into random pieces. Can be stored in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
