Makes about 2 1/2 pounds

This holiday favorite gets a cool crunch with peppermints. Blend crushed candy canes into melted white chocolate. Little elves can help break the bark into pieces and pack it in tins for gifts.


  • 2 pounds white chocolate

  • 12 candy canes

  • ½ teaspoon natural peppermint flavoring


  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water.

  2. Meanwhile, put candy canes in a plastic bag; crush into 1/4-inch pieces with a rolling pin. Stir peppermint flavoring and candy canes into melted chocolate. Remove from heat, and pour mixture onto lined sheet. Refrigerate until firm; break into pieces. Refrigerate bark until ready to serve.
