White chocolate and peppermint Christmas bark: a festive treat which also makes a great gift

White chocolate Christmas bark recipe uk with mint candy canes

You don’t really need a recipe to make chocolate bark because it’s as straightforward as you might think. Melt chocolate, pour it out, sprinkle with the toppings of your choice, leave to set and that’s it!

This festive version features white chocolate with mint and strawberry candy canes. Add any other festive sprinkles or chocolates you like.


  • 400 g / 14 oz white chocolate (you can also use a mixture of different chocolates)
  • 8-10 small candy canes, peppermint and/or strawberry
  • Festive sprinkles, little chocolates, any wintery decorations you like


Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper, sticking it to the tray using a little butter/margarine.

Chop your candy canes into small pieces and any other larger chocolates or sweets you’re using in your bark.

Break the white chocolate into small pieces and put in a heatproof bowl. Melt the chocolate over a pan of simmering water or use the microwave. If you use the microwave, start with 1 minute, then stir. Use further 30-second bursts, stirring after each until all the white chocolate has melted. Don’t rush this stage as it’s easy to go too far and end up with a lumpy mess rather than smooth melted chocolate.

Pour the white chocolate into your baking tray and spread it out to form an even layer. Sprinkle the candy canes pieces and other sugar sprinkles onto the white chocolate while it is still liquid.

    • I wouldn’t have thought of it, but my sister made some last year at Christmas and it was SO delicious. I’ve been waiting for a good reason to make some. I’m trying to save it to give to my son’s teachers, but it’s proving hard to leave it alone ๐Ÿ™‚


    • I tracked some down (eventually) in my local B&M. I couldn’t find any in the supermarket and was starting to despair, then walked into B&M and they were right opposite the main entrance door, like they were waiting for me! ๐Ÿ™‚
      I thought I’d have to resort to getting them online. But I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the sort of thing pound shops have at this time of the year too. Still amazed that none of the supermarkets had them! ๐Ÿ™‚
      I hope you can track some down.
