Peppermint Bark

Almond Peppermint Bark Recipe

This time of year, with temptation staring you down all the time, only go for the stuff that’s really satisfying—it’ll be easier to stop after a bite or two. My peppermint bark is the perfect indulgence for that very reason.


– 1 (16-oz.) bag dark chocolate chips
– ½ cup California Almonds, chopped
– ⅔ cup crushed candy canes, or peppermint candies
– 1 tsp. mint extract


1. Melt a 12-ounce bag of dark chocolate chips in a double boiler.

2. Remove from heat, and stir in 5 crushed candy canes and 1 teaspoon mint extract.

3. Line a small sheet pan with wax paper; pour in dark chocolate mixture, and sprinkle 5 more crushed candy canes over the top.

4. Refrigerate until firm, then break into chunks.
