Peppermint Bark

Peppermint Bark Recipe // Dula Notes

I went to Whole Foods with an organized list of produce and came back with an incredible amount of chocolate. I blame the gorgeous stack of irregular chunks of Callebaut for my lapse in judgment. After coming to my senses, I evaluated the amount of chocolate I had purchased and could not in good conscience keep it all. I decided that peppermint bark would be my only chocolate indulgence at this time and I found a recipe for a manageable 8×8 size. I did the chocoholic walk of shame to the return counter and exchanged my 1 pound hunks for 6 oz. pieces. It was all worth it when I took my first bite of chilled peppermint bark. The chocolate just melts in your mouth while you get the contrasting crunch of peppermint candy.

I splurged on organic candy canes and they were so pretty and pinkish without the artificial color. I gave Marc a piece and he went crazy for it. Use the best quality chocolate you can get your hands on and you will end up with heavenly shards of crunchy, creamy peppermint bark.

  1. Every time I go to Whole Foods I come back with numerous things I didn’t have on the list/don’t really need, but I’m always happy with the purchases in the long run! Bet you were glad to have all that chocolate for making this bark. Looks wonderful. Should make some for my sister — she loves the stuff.

    Cheers,

    • Heather – You’re so right. WF is a wondrous place to be sure.

      Redmenace – Returning chocolate because my eyes were bigger than my pantry was embarrassing, but it was worth getting the right amount to make this fantastic bark. It’s so easy!

  2. Oh dear. The chocoholic walk of shame? Gasp!
    Well, I’m glad you used some of your loot to make this. I adore a good candy bark. I wish I had this on hand right now! xo
