Peppermint Bark

Makes 2 1/4 pounds or one 11-by-17-inch sheet

Peppermint bark makes for a delicious and refreshing sweet treat. If you don't have a double boiler, use a metal bowl set over a pot of simmering water to make this recipe.


  • 2 pounds white chocolate, chopped into ½-inch pieces

  • 12 large candy canes

  • ½ teaspoon peppermint oil


  1. Line an 11-by-17-inch baking sheet with parchment, and set aside.

  2. In the top of a double boiler, melt white chocolate, stirring constantly.

  3. With a chef's knife or meat tenderizer, cut or pound candy canes into 1/4-inch pieces.

  4. Stir pieces of candy canes and peppermint oil into the melted chocolate. Remove from heat, and pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet; spread evenly. Chill until firm, 25 to 30 minutes. Break into pieces, and serve. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
