  • 2 bars of baking white chocolate
  • 2 bars of baking milk chocolate or dark chocolate, if you prefer
  • 2-4 drops of Peppermint essential oil Make sure it is therapeutic grade that can be ingested. I get mine here.
  • Raw cane sugar
  • Sprinkles crushed candy canes, or chocolate chips (I used chocolate chips)
  • Parchment paper & a cookie sheet


  1. Lay out your parchment paper on a cookie sheet. In a glass bowl, melt the milk chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments. Then, once melted, stir well with a spatula until smooth. Add in 1-3 drops of peppermint essential oil (totally depends on how "pepperminty" you want it... the peppermint oil is very potent so a little goes a long way!) Then stir well.
  2. Pour the chocolate on the parchment paper and spread evenly. Place in the freezer for about 10 minutes or until solidified.
  3. Once the milk chocolate layer is solid, repeat the previous steps with the white chocolate (melt, stir until smooth, add in 1-2 drops of peppermint essential oil, and stir.) Then, pour the melted white chocolate on top of the solidified milk chocolate and spread evenly.
  4. Then, you can get creative! Even though I love peppermint, I'm actually not the biggest fan of candy canes (weird, I know), so instead of crushed candy canes, I added some raw cane sugar crystals to the top (kinda hard to see in the pics) to add some sparkle AND a nice little crunch factor. Then I added some chocolate chips because, well, I love chocolate chips and it's my peppermint bark and I'll add chocolate chips if I want to. BUT, you could totally do sprinkles or crushed Oreos or anything!
  5. Then, place back in the freezer for another 10-15 minutes. Once solidified, break it apart into little servings and you're good to go!
