If you’re looking for a fun and delicious way to include those left-over candy canes from Christmas into something fun and tasty, this dark chocolate peppermint bark will do the trick! With layers of white and dark chocolate, this easy recipe requires no baking, has only six ingredients and gives a powerful peppermint hit. Perfect for snacking, parties, and gift-giving.


1. Grease and line a large rimmed baking tray with greaseproof paper.

3. Melt both chocolates in separate heatproof bowls set over half-filled saucepans of simmering water, stirring until smooth.

4. Remove from the heat and stir the peppermint extract into the melted dark chocolate.

5. Pour the dark chocolate onto the lined tray, spread out, and then pour the white chocolate on top, swirling it into the dark chocolate with the tip of a knife or a skewer.

6. Scatter the crushed peppermint candy canes, cacao nibs, and some flaky sea salt on top. Chill for 1 hour until set and firm.

7. Remove from the fridge and break into large shards before serving.
