easy peppermint cookie bark


I’ve had several of you ask about the peppermint cookie bark that we made for the Mod Candy Cane collection photo shoot a few weeks ago so I thought I would share the recipe. It’s super easy and oh so very yummy!


  • 8-10 sandwich cookies (+ some for nibbling)
  • 6 oz hard peppermint candies (approximately 32)
  • 1.5 cups white chocolate chips


  1. Place candy canes in a plastic bag and hammer into 1/4-inch chunks
  2. Place cookies in a plastic bag and break into 1/4-inch chunks
  3. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler
  4. Combine candy cane chunks and cookies with chocolate, saving just a few.
  5. Pour mixture onto a wax covered cookie sheet, add last few cookie and candy cane bits, pressing them gently into the chocolate, and place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes or until firm

This is the perfect recipe for a “sweet” Christmas gift. Stay tuned tomorrow for a few fun free embellishments to help you pretty up the packaging!

    This is one of my favorite holiday treats! I was going to make homemade hot fudge for neighbors and friends but this sounds so much better! Thanks for sharing.

    Just tried his recipe, and I think the proportions are off. One pound of Oreos to 1.5 c of melted chocolate didn’t make bark – but it is yummy! Maybe 5-6 Oreos instead of a package?

    This looks so pretty & I’m thinking of giving it a try to snazz up my Christmas dessert table. Did you use candy canes or did you use round peppermints? Also, can you give me some idea of how much it makes…I mean, about what size cookie sheet did you pour it onto?

    Thank you & have a nice holiday!

      Jennifer – I used peppermint rounds and I just poured it onto a regular cookie sheet. It doesn’t come to the edges. Thanks for stopping in!
