Peppermint Bark

Peppermint Bark is delightful any time of year, but especially at Christmas. Use good quality chocolate! This is highly addictive and makes a great gift packaged in 1/4 lb. candy boxes.

  • 16 ounces white vanilla candy wafer disks buy at A.C. Moore or Michael's
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 4 tablespoons whipping cream
  • crushed starlite peppermint candies or candy canes


  • Melt vanilla candy wafer disks according to package directions. (I use the microwave.)
  • Spread onto a 24" X 18" foil or parchment square on top of an inverted baking pan.
  • Let harden.
  • Slowly melt chopped chocolate over very low heat.
  • Remove from heat when just melted.
  • Stir in peppermint extract and whipping cream.
  • Spread melted chocolate mixture evenly on top of white candy layer.
  • Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies.
  • Chill until just hardened, about 15 minutes.
  • Wait 10-15 minutes, then cut into triangles.
  • Refrigerate!


How to crush the peppermints: leave in plastic wrappers, place in a heavy duty ziploc bag and bang with the sharp edge of a veggie can. Or use a food processor. (Please take off wrappers first if using the food processor!)
Refrigerate peppermint bark!
