Peppermint Bark Recipes

CafeMom lpoehl asked for a recipe for easy white chocolate peppermint bark. Yum! Now, doesn't that sound like it would hit the spot for the holidays?

Bread and Honey has an easy recipe for the pretty pink peppermint bark shown here. Just stir six crushed candy canes and a few drops of red food coloring into one bag of melted white chocolate chips. Then spread on waxed paper and refrigerate until solid.


CafeMom Kat770 makes a similar version, but uses half milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips and half almond bark to make it creamier.


I want to try this delicious-sounding Three-Layer Peppermint Bark from Orangette.






Do you have a recipe for peppermint bark?

    I heart Orangette. I like the white and dark layers idea - looks prettier than plain dark choc

    I made Oreo Bark this year using white chocolate, two sleeves of Oreo cookies and melted milk chocolate drizzled on the top. Now, if I can get my hands on more white chocolate, I'd love to make some with a little mint in it. I bought some extract for that reason, but I ran out of white chocolate. I can't wait to make more! I've made 2 batches already.

    I make the white peppermint bark the same, but I add a teaspoon of pure peppermint extract to the melted white chocolate, mix in a bit of crushed candy cane,  and sprinkle the rest of the crushed candy cane on top. It makes for a great taste and texture.

    I use white chocolate, add a tsp. of peppermint extract and stir in some crushed red and green peppermint.  Looks really pretty, and tastes great!

    We actually call it PEPPERMINT's just melted white chocolate and smashed up candy canes...smoothed out on parchment or wax paper, placed in the freeze until hard then broken up
