Super Easy {3 ingredient} Peppermint Bark

If you’re looking for a simple and easy homemade treat to give out to friends, neighbors, teachers, or to just bring more Holiday cheer to your life, then look no further. This 3 ingredient peppermint bark is beyond easy and completely irresistible.

I was invited to guest post for the annual Holiday Bake Craft Sew Along put together by Rachel from A Southern Fairytale, Kelly from According 2 Kelly and Cindy from Skip to My Lou.

Holiday Bake Craft Sew Along

All November long there have been many tired elves {other bloggers} working to bring you special handmade and homemade holiday gifts on each site. Rachel’s guest bloggers have been busy in the kitchen with recipes, Kelly’s guest bloggers have got the crafty side covered, and for those who love to sew, Cindy’s guest bloggers are all over that.

Obviously Rachel asked me to come up with a recipe {my sewing and crafty skills are not typically gift-worthy}.

It’s super-dooper easy to make, so you can get back to singing Christmas Carols and trimming the tree, confident that you have your emergency neighbor gifts ready to go.

Check out the full recipe and picture tutorial on Rachel’s blog!

  • 12 oz dark chocolate morsels

  • 6 candy canes, crushed, divided


  • Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Melt dark chocolate over a double boiler. (bring a small pot with 1 to 2 inches of water to a slow boil. Place a metal or glass bowl over the pot of water, make sure it fits on top of the pot without touching the water. Place the chocolate chips inside the bowl and stir frequently until chocolate melts and becomes smooth in texture)
  • Pour melted dark chocolate onto prepared baking sheet and smooth out to an even thickness (about 1/4 inch). Place in fridge to let harden.
  • Clean out bowl and melt the white chocolates the same way.
  • Once white chocolate is smooth, place 3 crushed candy canes inside the bowl and stir to combine. Pour over hardened dark chocolate and quickly smooth out.
  • Sprinkle the remaining crushed candy canes over the wet chocolate. Place in fridge to harden again. After it's hard, use a sharp knife to carefully cut into small pieces. (store in sealed container)

    Oooo…I love peppermint and chocolate together. I’ve had this kind of bark from Williams and Sonoma but have never made it myself. Will definitely have to try it now that I see just how easy it is!

  2. stefanie @ sarcastic cooking

    I have been meaning to make this for the past two Christmas’! Now is the perfect time. I think it would be a great hostess gift along with a bottle of wine or an infused vodka.

    Love the idea of a two-layer peppermint bark! But to be honest, not sure if this’ll last long enough in our house to gift to anyone except well, me! 🙂

    I love to bake, I just wish I was better at it. Its odd because back home in England I was pretty good but since moving here my skills have become dreadful.

    I am so excited to begin my holiday baking…I love to bake and share lots of cookies, candies and breads with my friends and neighbors during the holiday season

  6. Carrie @ Frugal Foodie Mama

    Peppermint Bark is SO good! One of my friends made it last year & I had never had it before and loved it! I was shocked when she told me how easy it was to make it! 🙂
    Thank you for hosting a fabulous giveaway!

  7. Asiya @ Chocolate and Chillies

    Bark looks delicious! Looks very festive…by the way r u really moving to Canada? If you are worried about the cinnamon chip, you can get excited for ketchup chips, apparently we will still have twinkies and if you in Ontario we buy our milk in bags not jugs 🙂

  8. Julie @White Lights on Wednesday

    I love simple delicious treats. This bark looks delicious. I have Bridget’s book and love it. I’m so gifting it if I win. 🙂

  9. Lany

    I love peppermint bark and love making homemade gifts for the holidays. So I think this will be included in my family and friends treat platters I make this year 🙂 And what a fantastic giveaway

  10. Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel

    Mm, peppermint bark is my favorite! I can’t get enough and even admit to getting a bit hoard-y with it once the season is over 🙂 love that this is so easy!
