Candy Cane Chocolate Bark

by Kris on November 25, 2011

Have you ever made chocolate bark? It is one of the easiest desserts to make and looks very impressive. I may be jumping the gun a bit, but it makes an excellent Christmas gift and stocking stuffer.

I like to wrap them in a clear and decorative candy bag and seal it with some curly ribbon. I have yet to meet someone who hasn’t loved receiving chocolate bark.

This recipe is slightly sweeter than my cranberry pistachio bark which makes it perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth.

So if you’d prefer to relax at home than to shop the insanity of today’s black Friday sales, don’t feel guilty. Just bookmark this recipe and make an affordable gift that will be appreciated much more because it was hand made.

1 cup white chocolate candy melts
1 cup dark chocolate candy melts
3 Tbsp. crushed candy canes
wax paper

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Set aside.

Place dark chocolate melts in a medium microwavable bowl. Microwave on medium power for 30 seconds. Stir mixture and continue to microwave for 30 second intervals until chocolate is completely melted.

Pour dark chocolate onto prepared cookie sheet and spread over surface with a spatula. Place cookie sheet in the refrigerator to harden.

In the meantime melt white chocolate melts using the same 30 second interval method. Pour the melted white chocolate over the hardened dark chocolate on the cookie sheet.

Using a knife, draw lines through the chocolate layers to create a pattern. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes.

Return cookie sheet to the refrigerator until the bark has hardened.

Once completely cooled and hardened remove from the fridge and break apart into pieces.

Store in a sealed container in a cool dark place so it does not melt.

It’s been a long time since I’ve made peppermint bark. I think I may need to add it back to my baking this holiday. This looks so good! I would love that cranberry pistachio bark too!

I love this idea! I have decorated our Christmas tree with edible candy canes and I am sure there will be a lot left after the holidays. I now know what to do with the canes when I put the tree down. Such an easy recipe, makes it all the more enjoyable…Enjoy the holidays! Thanks for the post!
