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!
