My youngest daughter really likes Peppermint Bark. In the beginning, I would just buy the Costco brand of Peppermint Bark and all was good. One year at school, I got a bunch of candy canes and well, the rest is history. I have been making my own Peppermint Bark ever since.

Melt your chips

I use parchment paper on a 13 x 9 jelly roll pan and use binder clips to hold it in place. I then spread the chocolate into the pan. And freeze it for about 5 minutes or until it hardens.

Crushing Candy Canes

As I wait for the chocolate to harden, I melt the white chocolate and crush the candy canes. My rolling pin is perfect for crushing those candy canes.

Who doesn't love Peppermint Bark?

The waiting is the hardest part in making this dessert. The minute it is done, I break right into to it! So easy to make and always a crowd pleaser!
