Ready In:
15-20 pieces


  • 12 ounces quality white chocolate (such as Ghirardelli)
  • 13 cup crushed candy cane, plus an extra
  • 2 tablespoons crushed candy canes
  • 2 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted


  • Line a 9x13" baking pan with aluminum foil.
  • Break up the white chocolate into small pieces and melt in either a double boiler set over simmering water, or in the microwave according to the package directions.
  • Do not let the chocolate burn!
  • Remove from heat and stir in the 1/3 cup of crushed candy canes.
  • Immediately pour this mixture into the prepared pan and spread spoon with a rubber spatula, leaving a 1/2" border around the edge of the pan.
  • Don't worry if it doesn't look perfectly shaped, but try to get it as evenly flattened as possible.
  • Melt semisweet chocolate pieces.
  • Drizzle the melted semisweet chocolate all over the surface of the white chocolate.
  • Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of crushed candy canes.
  • Set in the fridge until it firms up- this only takes a short time (about 15 minutes or so).
  • Cut or break the bark into serving pieces.
  • Jagged edges are ok.
  • These will look nice wrapped in plastic tin and tied with pink& white curling ribbon to give as holiday treats.

  1. Truly easy and excellent. Everyone at work loved them. I going to have to make more for DH.
  2. I made these for a cookie exchange so packaged it all up right after it was done. My son and husband felt very slighted and I had to make another batch before I left the house! Thanks for a treat we will enjoy over and over - holidays or not!
  3. Very easy. I kept the pan on a burner that was just shut off to make spreading easier. Nice and minty with the white chocolate.
  4. Perfect. This year I just don't have it in me to spend hours doing my Christmas baking yet I wanted something elegant to give to the neighbors. Put some of this in a pretty celephane bag with a nice ribbon and off you go. I have to respectfully disagree with the reviewer who thought this was not a pretty candy. Perhaps they drizzled the candy on with a spoon. I put the semi-sweet chocolate in a ziploc bag, snipped the corner (the smallest hole I could manage) and drizzled away(a technique which has gotten me accussed of buying many a dessert). The results were beautiful. I did three batches when I found little pockets of time in my day. I will never purchase peppermint bark again. Thanks HeatherFeather.
  5. Very easy. New family favorite for the holidays....
