Even if I do not have time to make anything else around the holidays, I make this outstanding peppermint bark! Crazy easy, very pretty and my family waits for it every year. Love it!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Why is this heaven called peppermint bark? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I first heard about peppermint bark when a friend at work brought it in. Once I started making my own, no one at work will buy any from the store. It's just that good. :) This is the recipe that I have used all along. I use "bark" in white and milk chocolate. It's also good if you layer the milk chocolate and then the white chocolate and then put the candy on top. (I don't use the flavoring. Instead, after crushing the candy, I mix the powder in the chocolate before I spread it out. YUM!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Super easy! I like to switch it up with spearmint, wintergreen, cinnamon, or maple candy canes (omitting the peppermint extract of course. Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent! Easy! Total hit. Made great gifts (wrapped beautifully in a treat box w/ ribbon and Christmas greenery. I also made a batch with just dried cranberries and toasted almonds. Wow item not reviewed by moderator and published
Try this: melt 12oz semisweet chocolate with 1 tsp veg oil in a double boiler. Melt over LOW heat and stir continually. Pay attention & be patient! When melted, spread thinly over parchment paper. Refrigerate an hour. Do the same with 12oz white chocolate. If you are adding candy cane powder, know that the the extra sugar will harden the chocolate quickly so melt the chocolate first, then add JUST before you are ready to spread it and spread quickly. [Take the dark chocolate out at the last minute]. If you add liquors or mint extract, add a little extra oil at the beginning when you are melting, and any alcohol or candy additions only seconds before you are ready to pour. If your top layer of chocolate is just slightly thick, that's ok, just get it out there and start spreading. Sprinle on the big chunks of peppermint while still hot and press in. Voila. Best holiday treat you will ever have. Easy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the first time I made this recipe, and I would make it again. I used two packages of 11 oz. Guittard white chocolate morsels instead of "two pounds". I used 1 teaspoon of real peppermint extract (a prior commenter mentioned the fake stuff will change the chocolate. I melted dark chocolate as well for a bottom layer. I would recommend adding 1 T of veg or canola oil to the melting chocolate(s to add viscosity and to prevent seizing. Just my two cents. I saved 1/2 c of the crushed peppermints to sprinkle on top. I split the dark choc over two 12x17 baking sheets and did the same with the white choc. It turned out beautifully and the chocolate adds a little "sumthin, sumthin" to it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome! So easy to make. I've seen these at William Sonoma. But it's so simple to just make it yourself. I made these as gifts for Christmas, along with Giada's recipe for Lemon Ricotta cookies and Paula's Zuchinni bread. Wrapped them and put them in decorative gift boxes. Delicious and sophisticated looking gifts! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe had a very good flavor, but my bark came out a little dry. It was also way too thick. It came out like a brick. Will try again some time and thin it out more. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was very simple and a great hit! I split it into 2 batches and used Ghiradelli white baking chips in both. I used a Godiva vanilla white chocolate bar in one and a Ghiradelli bar in the other, with 5 crushed candy canes in each batch. I also added about 1/2 tsp of Peppermint extract to each. One batch I added a handful of dried cranberries, the other sliced almonds. I drizzled milk chocolate on some as well. Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was my first attempt to make any kind of chocolate bark. After a couple of tries, I learned something very useful. Some extracts have alcohol and other additives in them. If you don't use a pure extract oil, it will cause any chocolate to seize up and become a thick, grainy and unusable glob. Also adding a teaspoon or two of Crisco shortening to the melting chocolate gives the bark a more luxurious texture. I ended up adding only the crushed candy canes (got a lovely result using a food processor to the surface of the chocolate --- the final result was both beautiful and tasty. A great recipe to begin one's adventures into making bark candy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a fast and easy recipe for the holidays. I highly recommend adding the 1/2 tsp peppermint extract -- it doesn't overpower at all. I mixed half of the candy cane chunks into the chocolate before pouring, and sprinkled the remaining half on top for a pretty look. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe this year for Christmas gifts and everyone loved it. I recommend adding peppermint pieces and holiday nonpareils to the top before putting it into the refrigerator. It makes it very festive looking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just in reference to the comment below, for peppermint flavoring your best bet is peppermint extract, you won't run into any troubles with consistency with it. Also, I think this is so much better if you add a layer of dark chocolate underneath the white chocolate to counter-balance the super sweet white chocolate. Try it and you won't be disappointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
a 5 for the second try! Where it said add peppermint flavoring if you wanted...do not add peppermint schnaaps! it turned it right into a large lump of white chocolate-- it lost all the smoothness- there was no consistency and it wouldn't reheat to soften...had to chuck it! that being said- the second try was the best- came out perfect- I hope my error helps someone else! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I love peppermint bark to begin with so I am a little bias, but this recipe is short and simple to make! However I usually add a layer of dark or milk chocolate as well as white chocolate. This recipe is great! Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sadly disappointed in this recipe. Waaay to much peppermint for my taste (perhaps the stuff I used was too high quality? Also, the treat did not keep well out of the fridge. We brought this in a festive holiday tin to a party and by the time we got there the chocolate and candy can were melting. Won't make again:( item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was OK not my favorite. WAY to sweet i think it should have some salty ness to it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was very tasty and I am not big on mint flavorings, but I think that I will put in the mint flavor next time. I was afraid with the candy canes it would be too much. With that said. I had a heck of a time making this. I tried to do it in the microwave and stir every 30 seconds. It looked like it was cooking so I took it out and threw it in the double boiler. It was just so thick and hard to stir. I'm not sure if I cooked it too much or too little. I spread what I could on the pan and left the rest on the stove. When I came back to wash things. The chocolate that was left in the double boiler was thinning so I stirred it and used the rest of it. This consistency looked like the videos. I am giving 4 stars as I think the recipe needs some time frames and to warn of cooking the chocolate too fast. Thanks to the other comments on here I will to cook it slower next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published

What a GREAT recipe! A new favorite, for sure! Not only is it so easy, it is so quick and easy to clean up after. There's only one bowl to clean! The peppermint extract adds just the right amount of flavor to the chocolate, and the peppermint candies are a fun treat. I was worried about biting into them, but they break very easily. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Such an easy recipe and so very tasty! Made this today and it's a major hit with my family! Like many others, I added 1/4tsp peppermint extract. It's a must try in my book. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. Very versatile. It looks great with the red/green striped candy canes, too. Very festive. Please note: there is a HUGE difference between the white "chocolate" chips, like Nestles and Ghiradelli. Those are NOT white chocolate...they are flavored chips. The best flavor comes from using real white chocolate! When in doubt, read the package. If you don't see the word "cocoa" or "chocolate" in the ingredients, you are using an artificially flavored product. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This peppermint bark is great. I made 1 lb with 1/4 tsp peppermint extract, then sprinkled crushed candy canes on top. Everyone loved it. I'll definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make these every year and bring to holiday parties. Kids and adults can't stop eating them! I make a layer of bittersweet chocolate and a layer of white chocolate and add 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract to the white chocolate. I have never had a problem making this recipe and it is to die for! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tasty? What did you think?This bark is so good! Definately use the peppermint extract. I am going to also spread the chocolate first before I add the peppermint pieces. The chocolate was harder to spread with the peppermint pieces already added and I think it will look prettier. Also, make sure you don't overheat the white chocolate or it will sieze and be useless. item not reviewed by moderator and published

OMG!!!!! this recipe was a BIG hit for me this year 2010!!!! Everyone LOVED it!!!! Thanks to Paula Deen. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Foolproof, unless you over-heat the chocolate. I use Ghiardelli (it's worth it!), leave out the peppermint oil, and spread it as thin as it will go. I sometimes make a thin bottom layer of milk chocolate, and it's just like the squares, only SO much better. Yesterday, while perusing the after-Christmas candy aisle, I found some Life Savers fruit-flavored candy canes. I made a half-batch with orange and one with pineapple--yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published

So easy! I got Tollhouse white chocolate morsels on sale so it was very affordable. My store didn't carry peppermint oil so I went without it. I poured it onto a silpat to make clean up super easy. I liked the candy canes more finely broken up than the recipe called for. I'll make this again for sure. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super easy and delicious. I used Ghirdelli white chocolate chips and it came out fine. After 4 batches I found the following tips help. (1) Very low heat to melt chocolate and stir constantly. (2) Add peppermint flavoring at the very end of melting process and stir in vigorously with candy canes. The peppermint flavoring is a MUST in my opinion. (3) When you crush the candy canes in a plastic bag there will be some candy cane "dust" in the bottom of the bag. Do not mix that into the chocolate with the candy cane pieces. Instead, save that to sprinkle on after you spread it on the cookie sheet. WOW, it gives it a great look and adds to the candy cane/peppermint taste. Next time I am going to try a double layer with darker chocolate on the bottom. Happy baking..... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Too easy to taste this good. i used the red and green candy canes and a dropp of peppermint flavoring like she recommended. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy! perfect for Christmas gift-giving! add 15 drops of peppermint oil per lb of white chocolate - really helps with the melting process item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely delicious! Definitely suggest using the peppermint extract to add some additional flavor. The bark just melts in your mouth. I think this is going to be a recipe I will make every year. Thanks, Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I halved the recipe and added a very small amount of McCormick pure peppermint extract. Used Ghirardelli white chocolate premium baking bars and regular candy canes (Bob's. Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm giving this recipe 5*'s based on the changes I made. All white chocolate would have been too sweet for me, so here are my changes: 1lb. semi sweet chocolate and I added 1/8tsp of peppermint abstract to that after it was melted....let it cool in the fridge for an hour. Then I topped it w/1lb. of white chocolate (all ghiradelli! Added the cup of crushed candy canes to the white choc. after it melted. Absolutely incredible! Breaks right apart on the parchment paper.

This is such a crowd-pleaser, you wouldn't think it was as easy as melting chocolate. I switched it up a bit- I used one pound of dark chocolate for the first layer and one pound of white chocolate for the second. I added one teaspoon of peppermint extract (which I thought was plenty) to the white chocolate along with the candy crunches. So yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I just made this for the first time ever, making peppermint bark. I used 2 3 oz. Lindt bars and two bags of Ghirardelli white chips. I melted the chocolate in the microwave ratlher than double boiler. Just stir it every 30 seconds. After I put in the crushed candy canes, I added 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract and it came out perfect. I will be making this every Christmas from now on. Thanks Paula. My name is Paula, too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is really easy to make and its great at Christmas time... I gave some away as gifts and served it with dessert at dinner and it was hit! Yummy. I kind of added too many candy canes (didn't follow the recipe exactly) so i suggest you stick to the recipe guidelines. Using bakers white chocolate makes the peppermint bark very smooth and creamy (don't use chocolate that DOESN'T contain cocoa butter!) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I came across this recipe a few days before Christmas and I'm certainly glad I did. Fun, easy, and delicious! A big hit with family and neighbors. Using Nestle's white chocolate morsels worked out great. No problem at all with melting. I didn't use peppermint extract or flavoring other than candy canes. Placing several apx. 1/4" pieces of peppermont to the top of the mixture after it's spread made the Peppermint Bark look even more appealing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this recipe but I found the white chocolate and peppermint to be very sweet, so I used about 1 cup of dried cranberries and 1 cup of crushed walnuts with 1lb of white chocolate morsels. It was a delicious hit at the holiday potluck! I also found it better to make 1lb batches at a time so that the chocolate spread thinner and was easier to break into nice bit size peices. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used semi sweet chocolate chips on the bottom. I added a little peppermint extract to that. I then chilled in the fridge and added white chocolate on top with the candy canes chopped up. I melted both chocolates in the microwave - 30 seconds at a time on 1/2 power and stirring in between. Much better results for the white chocolate than on the stove - easier too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Decided to try this as christmas gifts to see whatwould happen, especially since I've never worked with chocolate before...I was pleasantly surprised, even when I had to improvise a double boiler since mine wasn't big enough! I plan on making this again in a few days to take down to my family's for Christmas dinner. Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is fantastic and kid friendly! To get a fine, premium taste, I used Ghirardelli White Chocolate Bars -- not to be confused with Ghirardelli baking pieces. With the bars, you get a superior texture and taste that will impress your friends or guests! Looks gorgeous as a gift! Highly recommend. Thanks Paula Deen! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this last week and although it is the best that I have ever had, I had a lot of trouble getting the white chocolate to melt. I just read that someone said that the peppermint extract would cause this but I made mine with a bottom layer of dark chocolate and I also added the extract to it and didn't have any problem. I used white chocolate chips. Does anyone know of a different white chocolate that is better to use? I tried everything to get it to melt. finally I added milk and that worked. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My son has asked me to make this again this year! I forgot about it and will definitely be making it again. A great, easy recipe that rivals the kind you can buy in the store.

I love peppermint bark but HATE how expensive it is to buy (as another reviewer mentioned). So...after searching for a recipe I of course tried Paula Deen's!! This was awesome to make and incredible to eat. Everyone loves it...I made 2 batches, both with a milk chocolate layer first. I am the one in my family who does all the cooking and baking for the holidays and this year stumbled on a good tip: pop the bark (1st layer and then when complete) in your garage (attached) to harden. We have a stuffed fridge and a side-by-side so getting a cookie sheet in there is tough. But, I found that the milk chocolate layer didn't harden well until I took it in our cold midwestern garage. Enjoy!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
i have read in several reviews that poeple have added a milk chocolate layer i was wonder if you would use 2lbs of the milk chocolate as well as 2lbs of the white chocolate! Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this to give to my team at work for the holidays. This peppermint bark is all any of them are talking about, word has gotten out at the office, and people are coming to my desk to ask me about getting this recipe. It's probably the easiest thing I've ever made and is so good. Try it. The ingredients aren't expensive, and the return you will get from your fans will far outweight any suffering through a long lines at the grocery store or having to make up your own double boiler on the fly. A tin with this in it is the perfect thing to have on hand in case you get surprised with a present or just to give as a present. It will most certainly be appreciated. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so fun to make because you can change it up without ruining it. I used milk choclate instead of white. I could not find peppermint oil, but it does not need it. I had the crushed candy cane and then added crushed pretzels to give it some saltiness. It turned out great. I highly recommend it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made it on a whim today because a friend of mine loves white chocolate peppermint bark and complains about the kinds that come with the dark chocolate layer. I melted the white chips at 70% power in the microwave (I did it 30 seconds at a time until I could stir it... leaving the chips to melt as I stirred). Then I crushed about 6 candy canes in a heavy Ziploc freezer bag....just took the backside of my heavy ice scream scoop and wacked the candy canes up to the desired consistency). I stirred it together and spread them on parchment paper. I find parchment paper is best! It pulls right off without a fuss. I've tried wax paper (sometimes sticks) and even a little Pam cooking spray (makes the bark a little greasy - ew!). After an hour in the fridge, I broke the bark up and it was PERFECT. My husband thought I bought it. And seriously, prep for this was 10 minutes max! LOVE this!!! For the person who asked why their bark separated (the white chocolate from the dark chocolate layer).... try chilling the dark chocolate for 5-10 minutes then adding the white chocolate. If the dark chocolate is a little warm, it will adhere to the white chocolate layer better. Be careful when you spread the white chocolate on though, so it doesn't swirl in dark chocolate streaks. Hope that helps! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for the first time to go with my pile of holiday cookies for my office. It was a total hit! Two people immediately asked me for the recipe. It's so incredibly easy...I made with 1.5 capfuls of peppermint extract in with the chocolate. Next time, I think I'll experiment with layers of different types of chocolate. It's definitely now a staple in my holiday baking :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried making this with a layer of dark choc on the bottom but when trying to break it up out of the fridge the bottom layer is breaking off of the white bark. any tips for next time? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow! This was very, very easy to make. I used the microwave to melt the chocolate so the hardest part was un-wrapping the candy canes. I'm not known for my cooking, so my Mom was impressed this morning when I brought some into work. I will try some of the variations next time, but for less than $10 I?ve got several nice homemade presents. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe - it's a hit every Christmas! HINT: I do ths in the microwave. Easier and faster! Just do 30-60 seconds at a time on 50% power, stirring in between until it's warm and smooth, then continue with the recipe as ususal. I add peppermint extract AFTER it's melted. Also, non-stick foil works beautifully for this recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Erica, re: flavoring: I used 1-2 small capfuls of the Peppermint flavoring. I found that it really is needed. Hillary re: HELP.
