Expert Tips

Melt half a pound of white and semisweet chocolate, spread evenly side by side on a baking sheet, and use a knife to create a marbled effect.

For me, nothing says “Happy Holidays” like a piece of homemade candy. With this easy mint bark recipe, you can spread a bit of holiday cheer with a homemade delight packed in a festive bag. I'm sure your friends and loved ones will enjoy this festive treat and might think you spent countless hours over a bubbly stovetop creating it. Little will they know that this minty recipe takes little to no time at all and can be easily doubled or tripled. It's a tasty and personal gift for teachers and neighbors or a wonderful dessert for that special holiday party.

You can substitute the candy canes with bits of toffee, nuts, or dried fruit, or a combination of each.

Directions

  • 1 Line 2 baking sheets with parchment and set aside.
  • 2 Put the candy canes in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin or meat pounder to crush them into tiny pieces.
  • 3 Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler (a heatproof pan set over a pan of simmering water), stirring continuously.
  • 4 When the chocolate has completely melted, remove from heat and pour onto a lined baking sheet. With a spoon or offset spatula, spread the chocolate evenly.
  • 5 Sprinkle the chocolate with half of the crushed candy canes. Refrigerate until firm; about 20-30 minutes.
  • 6 Follow the same process with the semisweet chocolate.
  • 7 After your bark has cooled and is firm, remove from the refrigerator and break into pieces.
  • 8 Place in cellophane gift bags and tie with festive ribbons. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to one week.
