DIY Holiday Peppermint Bark Recipe

Nothing is as good as sweets and desserts on the holidays! Throw those fruit cakes aside and make a few batches of this tasty Holiday Peppermint Bark!

Our super easy and incredible tasting candy bark is great for gifting and even better for dipping in hot cocoa!

You can make this recipe as a Christmas Eve tradition, or Holiday Bake Sale staple!

All you need are a few ingredients!

  1. White Chocolate
  2. Dark Chocolate
  3. Coconut Oil – we purchased ours from Target
  4. Starlight Peppermint Hard Candies
  5. Peppermint Oil – we purchased ours from Target

Other things you will need:

  1. Parchment Paper -Purchased on Amazon
  2. Double Boiler or Microwave – another great Amazon find
  3. Rolling Pin or something hard to smash the Starlight Mints
  4. Refrigerator

Simple enough right? Let’s get started!

Melt your chocolate easily with a double boiler

You can just use a pot with boiling water and place a heat safe bowl on top to mix the chocolate in!

Add 3-4 drops of peppermint oil while the chocolate is melting and don’t forget your coconut oil. By adding coconut oil, it makes the chocolate more sleek – you will get smooth and creamy chocolate which is perfect for spreading on parchment paper!

Pour your delicious melted chocolate onto a large cut piece of Parchment paper and place it in the fridge for 10 minutes until it hardens!



Use your Rolling pin or whatever hard thing a ma-gig you decided to use and smash the peppermints to oblivion…well not completely to oblivion, you will be needing some for the bark…

Place your smashed Peppermint Candy to the side –

Repeat the same process you used to melt the White Chocolate for your Dark Chocolate. Add some peppermint into this one as well and don’t forget a little Coconut Oil as well..about a tablespoon 🙂

Take out your White Chocolate which should be hardened in the fridge by now and pour the melted Dark Chocolate on top leaving a little room on the edge so the White Chocolate can peak through!

As soon as you have finished pouring your chocolate ADD the crushed peppermint onto the warm dark chocolate, so it sinks into the bark.

Immediately place in the fridge to harden for 10 minutes!

Your Peppermint Bark is ready for the chopping board!

Use a knife to cut choppy pieces of bark! Large or Small pieces, whichever you prefer is fine! We went with larger size chunks!

Our DIY Peppermint Bark came out DELICIOUS!

Make it a gift by placing it in cute cellophane bags and giving them to family, friends and coworkers for the holidays!

Place it on a Tray for a Holiday party!

Long Lost Delfa Rolls coming back to life!


Blast from the Past? History of Delfa Rolls

Are you young enough to remember the Delfa Rolls, also called Danish Ribbons? They used to be sold by a few convenience stores in the 1960s. They were pretty hard to find because they were imported from overseas. It was a lot of fun eating Delfa Rolls because you could peel off the strips and chew on them, or just pop the entire roll in your mouth and suck on it until it was gone. You got a roll of licorice that you could separate into four rolls. Continue reading “Long Lost Delfa Rolls coming back to life!”

These Watermelon Sundaes are so delicious and sweet they are the ultimate summertime treat! All you need is a few ingredients and you’ll be on your way to a refreshing cup of YUM!

The first ingredient on our list is SHERBET!

Unfortunately, we do not carry this delicious ice cream but you can find it at your local grocery store and it doesn’t have to be Watermelon flavor, just PINK!

We used Friendly’s Watermelon Sherbet which was purchased at Walmart!

To be honest, the sherbet is delicious all by itself! But since we are a candy store we had to add a little flare!

So, next up are the GUMMI BEARS!

We decided on using Albanese Green Apple Bears for the green color so we could replicate the pink and green Watermelon colors but lucky you, we really do carry Watermelon flavored gummi bears which are OH, SO SWEET.

Summer Friendly Candy

Summer is here again, and it’s a HOT one.

We all love barbecues, picnics, beach days, pool days and anything that has to do with summertime. The only negative side to summer is the brutal heat, especially if you live down south.

Don’t let the sun ruin the fun! When you are hosting an event in the summertime it is important to think about food and sweets that are NON MELT-ABLE, or in other words – Summer Friendly!

That means no chocolate in your candy buffet jars on fourth of July unless you want to ladle chocolate soup into bowls for your guests (actually that sounds delicious and they would probably enjoy it) but for THIS shindig lets say everything needs to be in tact when the guests arrive.

Here is a list of the most tasty yet least melt able candies we have at Bulk Candy Store for your exciting upcoming summer parties, festivals and events.
