1 lb. white almond bark
1 cup crushed peppermint candies*
1/4 tsp. peppermint flavoring (optional)


  1. Melt the almond bark in the microwave according to the package directions.
  2. Stir in peppermints and flavoring. I like my bark really minty so I add more flavoring.
  3. Pour onto waxed paper or a silicone baking mat on a cookie sheet.
  4. Spread and let harden. You can put it in the fridge if you prefer to harden it more quickly.
  5. Then break into pieces.


If you like, you can mix bark flavors. For example, you could first melt some chocolate bark, spread it on the waxed paper and let it harden partway before spreading the peppermint and almond bark mixture over the top.

*To crush candy canes, put them in a ziptop bag and smash them with a rolling pin.

Variations:  You can put just about anything into almond bark for different flavors!
