Homemade Peppermint Bark


Peppermint Bark is a super simple and delicious holiday treat! It makes a quick and easy homemade gift that everyone will love!

Peppermint Bark Recipe

All you need is 1 pound of white candy coating and 1/2 cup peppermint pieces (or finely crushed starlight mints or candy canes).


Melt the candy coating very slowly in the microwave. If  the candy is melted too fast and it gets it too hot it will harden and not become liquid.  Start with 30 seconds and then stir. Continue heating at 15 second intervals, stirring each time until melted. Add in 1/2 cup peppermint pieces.


Stir until completely combined.


Spread candy thinly out on wax paper and allow to cool. (About an 11″ X 17″ area)

Once hard, break candy into pieces. This is the perfect treat to keep on hand for unexpected guests and it makes a wonderful hostess or neighbor gift when wrapped in a pretty container.

Believe me, your friends will eat this up! Enjoy!
