  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 12 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 8 peppermint candy canes


  • Prepare a large cookie sheet by covering with aluminum foil, parchment paper, or waxed paper.
  • Place unwrapped candy canes in a large plastic zip-top bag. Crush with a rolling pin or bottom of a small saucepan until you have small pieces. Reserve about 1/3 cup of the crushed candy canes and set aside.
  • Melt semisweet chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave. If you're using a microwave, heat in 15-second intervals and stir well each time until completely melted. Melt and stir until chocolate is completely smooth. 
  • Pour melted chocolate onto the cookie sheet and spread it into a thin layer with a rubber spatula. Put the cookie sheet in the refrigerator while you melt the white chocolate. Leave in refrigerator for 10-15 minutes or until almost completely set.
  • Clean the double boiler and add the white chocolate chips, melting them until smooth (or use the microwave method). Add in all but the reserved 1/3 cup of the candy cane pieces and mix well into the white chocolate.
  • Remove the cookie sheet from the refrigerator and carefully spread the white chocolate over the semisweet chocolate in a thin layer. Sprinkle the 1/3 cup of candy cane pieces on top of the peppermint bark and place cookie sheet in freezer.
  • Let the bark completely cool in the freezer. Remove bark from the cookie sheet and break it into large chunks.
