‘Tis the season for Peppermint Bark! As holiday gift-giving season gets underway, what better way to spread holiday cheer and express your gratitude to party hosts, teachers, family and friends than an edible gift? If your time is short but your nice list is long, this three ingredient Peppermint Bark is the answer to your Christmas wishes.
Barks are an easy, but impressive dessert you can throw together with minimal ingredients. (Check out my Halloween Candy Chocolate Bark for a delicious way to put leftover candy to great use.) I love the peppermint bark at Williams-Sonoma and this version is a very close second.
This bark is great with regular chocolate chips but splurge a little on a higher-quality chocolate, like Guittard or Scharfenberger, and it’s off the charts. You can crush the peppermint candies or candy canes in a food processor or by placing them in a resealable plastic bag and smashing them with a rolling pin.
For gifting, stack the bark in holiday tins or sturdy treat boxes lined with parchment paper.
Drop peppermint candies or candy canes broken into pieces into a food process to chop them quickly. Use the pulse button to avoid pulverizing them.
