Creamy white chocolate, crushed candy canes, peppermint crunch baking chips, and peppermint chocolate melts all come together in this simple holiday treat! Ready in minutes!
I made this in August. In my defense, I was making this Leftover Halloween Candy Chocolate Bark the same day, and figured why not just get this out of the way.
I also made this Candy Corn Bark, so it was just a big ol’ candy and chocolate kind of day.
I found candy canes at Sam’s Club in August, believe it or not, as well as a plethora of Christmas decorations. It was crazy.
I don’t know that this one offers you anything new or different, but it’s something that I wanted to make. If I was making it anyway, I wanted to share it here too.
Actually, I take that back. Most just include white chocolate and candy canes, but this includes Wilton Candy Cane melts too, and Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips. Extra peppermint flair. And it makes a difference.
Because, when you’re making peppermint bark in August and you’re sprinkling it with candy cane sprinkles, it feels like an adventure!
I wrapped it up and stuck it in the freezer immediately after making it. This recipe makes a boatload, and I’ve been eating frozen bits and shards of this Peppermint Candy Cane Bark since summertime!
