White Chocolate Peppermint Bark is the perfect sweet combination of chocolate and peppermint. Easy to make, this is a MUST for Christmas!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!
And by that I mean it’s when calories don’t count and every day is guilt-free on how many cookies, fudges and pieces of White Chocolate Peppermint Bark are consumed.
That’s right!!! It’s Christmas time!! It’s when every food blogger online looses their mind because it’s primarily our favorite time to create new recipes to share with the world. So many amazing flavors to work with, so many family gatherings to plan for and so many creative combinations to play with.
It’s also a lot of work and you can easily bite off more than you can chew when it comes to ideas, failed recipes and over the top successful dishes. For example, I have made one particular recipe FOUR times and have yet to work out all the kinks of the process. Four times!!! My husband is calling it The Million Dollar Recipe because that’s how many trips to my supermarket i have made in my attempt to bring this particular recipe to life. But still I try….
Then you have this recipe for White Chocolate Peppermint Bark and it couldn’t be more perfect, more easy to make. Food is funny like that sometimes!
If you are looking for the perfect combination of chocolate and peppermint, this recipe for White Chocolate Peppermint Bark is it! You can pull this together in just a few minutes and it is the perfect compliment to this time of year. Great for gift giving, the dessert / sweets table at holiday parties and especially great for YOU and YOUR TUMMY!
Now, this recipe was written to create a THICK candy bark and I realize that not everyone like that, many prefer a thin chocolate bark. No worries, this recipe is easily modified. Simply cut the white and dark chocolate proportions down and the bark will not be so thick. I have included instructions below for both.
So enjoy this time of year with your family and friends and give thanks for all that we have been blessed with… including chocolate and stretchy yoga pants.
Enjoy! ~ Heather
