An easy double chocolate bark with crushed candy canes.


  • 8 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate squares, chopped

  • 6 ounces white baking chocolate squares, chopped

  • Optional: 1/2 t. peppermint extract

  • 1/2 cup peppermint candy canes, crushed


  • Place chocolates in 2 separate microwave-safe bowls. Working with one bowl at a time, microwave on high setting for one minute; stir until smooth. Microwave an additional 10 to 15 seconds, if needed. Pour semi-sweet chocolate onto a wax paper-lined baking sheet; set aside. Stir extract into white chocolate, if using. Slowly pour white chocolate over semi-sweet chocolate on baking sheet. Swirl chocolates together with a knife; sprinkle with crushed candy. Chill until firm, about one hour. Use wax paper to lift bark from baking sheet; break into pieces. Store tightly covered at room temperature.
