This a recipe in found online ...

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 2 cups dark chocolate, chopped, or chocolate chips
  • 2 cups white chocolate, chopped, or white chocolate chips
  • 8 peppermint candy canes


1. Unwrap the candy canes and place them in a food processor. Pulse on/off several times for 5-10 seconds each, until the canes have been crushed into small pieces. Alternately, place the candy canes in a large Ziploc bag and seal tightly. Use a rolling pin to roll/smash the candy canes until they are the size you desire.
2. Cover the slice tin with aluminum foil.
3. Melt or the dark chocolate. Pour the chocolate onto the prepared tin and use an offset spatula or knife to spread it to an even thickness, a little more than 1/8" thick. The chocolate does not have to reach all sides of the sheet, as it will be broken up later anyhow. Place the tray in the refrigerator to firm up while you prepare the white chocolate.
4. While the dark chocolate hardens, melt or the white chocolate. Stir in most of the candy cane bits, reserving about a quarter of the mixture to put on top.
5. Remove the tray from the refrigerator and spread the white chocolate in an even layer over the dark chocolate.
6. While the white chocolate is still wet, sprinkle the remaining candy cane pieces over the entire surface evenly. Press down very slightly to ensure they stick. Place the tray back in the refrigerator to firm up for 30 minutes.
7. Once the peppermint bark bark is completely set, break into small, uneven pieces by hand.
 I have a very excited child who is keen to help...NOT! Move over junior master chef.. I've got two coming through with a variety of cooking expertise. Um...let me think... toast, cereal and mixing cordial are their specialties! haha
at least one loves cooking!

I will be off now to have that yummy cuppa with my hubby.  Have a wonderful weekend with your family!!
Love Emma xx
