A couple of years ago I discovered chocolate bark for the first time, beautiful slabs of chocolate that looked almost like rocky road in chocolate form. People created so many different flavour combinations and I wanted to start creating my own at home.

We had some peppermint candy canes to use up so I decided to create a Peppermint Chocolate Candy Cane Bark recipe for us all to enjoy over the holiday season.

Why should you make Peppermint Chocolate Candy Cane Bark?

Chocolate bark is a really lovely invention. It turns simple, basic bars of chocolate into something much lovelier that can really be appreciated and enjoyed. It works so well as a gift and this peppermint bark would be wonderful as a Christmas gift or end of term gift for teachers.

We always put treats like this mint chocolate bark into little bags and tie with a ribbon or seal with a sticker, making them a really simple but lovely gift to receive.

This easy chocolate peppermint bark combines sweet chocolate with a lovely peppermint flavour and any sprinkles you feel like adding. We use red, white and green sprinkles to match the candy canes and give a festive feel but you can use whatever you have to hand. It’s a really lovely treat that takes just minutes to make and can be enjoyed throughout the holidays.

If you’re looking for other Christmas recipes to try why not give our Candy Cane Fudge, Low Sugar Trifle or Mince Pie Flapjack a try?
