Watch a step by step recipe video:

And it's easy as 1 2 3…

Grab your chocolate 🍫 your peppermint 🌿 and your coconut oil 🥥 

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups Chocolate chips milk, semi-sweet, or dark
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 cups White chocolate chips or candy melts
  • 4 teaspoons Peppermint extract
  • 1/2 cup Crushed Peppermint candy or candy canes 

Instructions:
  1. Place waxed paper in a 13×9 baking dish. Leave enough waxed paper along edges to lift peppermint bark from baking dish later.
  2. Add chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon coconut oil to a medium glass bowl. Heat in microwave for about 1 minute. If not melted, heat in 30 second increments until it is melted. (Be careful to not over heat and BURN your chocolate).
  3. Remove from microwave and stir until smooth. Add 2 teaspoons peppermint extract to melted milk chocolate and stir until well-combined.
  4. Pour chocolate into the prepared baking dish and place in the freezer until hardened, approximately 3 minutes.
  5. Repeat the same process with the white chocolate. Remove baking dish from freezer and spread white chocolate over frozen chocolate.
  6. Sprinkle crushed peppermint candies over white chocolate and return to the freezer until firm, approximately 3 minutes.
  7. Remove from freezer and pull waxed paper from baking dish.
  8. Break peppermint bark into pieces. Place on a dish, in a tin, or in bags for gift giving.
