About the Recipe
Y'all have to try this amazing Peppermint Bark!
This yummy recipe is one of my favorite holiday treats. It tastes delicious, but the best part is that it's sooo simple to make ... practically no effort required.
You'll make this tasty Christmas recipe with two simple ingredients: white chocolate and peppermint candy. And it's ready in minutes. So make a few batches to give to friends and keep some for yourself, too.
How to Make White Chocolate Peppermint Bark
This easy Peppermint Bark take minutes to make with two simple ingredients: candy canes and white chocolate. And the basic steps are so easy:
- Crush the peppermint candy.
- Melt the white chocolate.
- Spread the melted chocolate on a foil lined pan.
- Sprinkle with candy.
- Chill until firm, then break into pieces.
With such an easy recipe, you'll want to use the best quality chocolate you can find, of course. I used Ghirardelli white chocolate chips for my bark, but if you can find white chocolate in a block, that will work, too.
If you do buy chips, buy the more expensive brand. Even if you do, you'll still have a gift that costs under $10 to make ... and I'm quoting NYC prices here, so it will probably run you less than $5 elsewhere!
Make sure to make a batch of this easy recipe for Peppermint Bark for yourself, too, or you won't be able to give it away!
How to Package the Bark
This easy Peppermint Bark recipe makes a wonderful gift, and it's easy to wrap up.
I packaged my homemade Peppermint Bark in a simple white box wrapped with twine and topped with a candy cane. Add a little tissue paper to keep the candy from moving around, too. You can get the printable Candy Cane Gift Tag here (there's a blank version, too!).
