Peppermint Bark


  • 1 cup crushed candy canes we use 1 12-pack of Bob’s candy canes
  • ~2 pounds white chocolate chips we use one 24-oz. bag and one 12-oz. bag of Nestle’s morsels
  • 4 teaspoons peppermint extract


  1. Place candy canes in a plastic bag and hammer into ¼-inch chunks or smaller.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Combine candy cane chunks with chocolate (add peppermint flavoring at this point if desired).
  3. Pour mixture onto a cookie sheet layered with parchment or waxed paper and place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes or until firm.
  4. Remove from cookie sheet and break into pieces (like peanut brittle).
