How to make Peppermint Bark:
The best part about this is… you really can’t mess it up…
As long as you can melt some chocolate and crush some candy canes then you’re pretty much good to go. 😉
And you can even have the kiddo’s do the crushing!
Just put the candy canes in a zip lock bag and beat them with a rolling pin.
Crush, crush, crush into small pieces ( bonus→ nice way to relieve any frustrations 😆 ).
And sprinkle all over the melted chocolate before putting in the freezer to harden up.
Then just break it up into desired sized pieces for such a fun festive treat.
What kind of Chocolate should I use?
You want to use a good quality dark chocolate since obviously that’s the star 🌟 ingredient.
I used dark chocolate chips which were vegan friendly for this…
But if you don’t need it to be Vegan just look for dark chocolate with a high cocoa content to get all the optimal health benefits from it.
And I used organic candy canes which don’t contain any dyes or artificial ingredients…
Which is definitely important to me and something I’m always looking out for!
