Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark *The Perfect Last Minute Gift!*

It’s that time of year... when you can’t figure out what gifts to give and everything seems so over the top & expensive. Why not give the gift of homemade food? Make something delicious in a large batch and wrap up with a bow! Bonus points if it’s healthy, so your loved ones will feel good eating it.

Easy dark chocolate peppermint bark:


  • 1 bag of dark chocolate chunks

  • 1/4 cup crushed organic candy canes or peppermints

  • 1/4 cup nuts of your choice, chopped


  1. Melt chocolate in a double broiler

  2. Add in crushed nuts and candy canes (enough to see chunks but not too much that they aren’t all coated in chocolate.)

  3. Spread out melted chocolate on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

  4. Let chill until hardened (overnight is best, but a few hours will do.) Break up into pieces. Voila!
