Indulge in Festive Delights: Peppermint Dark Chocolate Bark

Welcome to a culinary adventure that will elevate your holiday season to new heights! Today, we are delving into the exquisite realm of Peppermint Dark Chocolate Bark. With its luxurious blend of rich dark chocolate and invigorating peppermint, this treat is bound to captivate your senses and leave you craving for more.


  • 500g of pure indulgence: 70% dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • A dash of magic: 3-4 drops of peppermint oil (opt for oil-based to keep the chocolate from seizing)
  • A sprinkle of enchantment: 50g of crushed peppermint candies or candy canes


  1. Set the Stage: Begin by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, creating the perfect canvas for your masterpiece.

  2. Melting Pot of Dreams: Melt the dark chocolate with care, either through the mesmerizing dance of a double boiler or the modern sorcery of a microwave. Stir diligently in between bursts to ensure a velvety outcome that melts your worries away.

  3. Tempering Magic: Let the chocolate cool to 27°C after melting, sprinkling in some unmelted pieces along the way. This 'seeding' method will bestow a divine temper upon your chocolate, ensuring a flawless finish.

  4. Minty Freshness: Bring the chocolate back to 31°C, infusing it with the essence of peppermint oil. Stir with intention, merging these flavors into a harmonious symphony.

  5. Artistic Expression: Pour the tempered chocolate onto your awaiting canvas. With the finesse of a painter, spread it into a thin, even layer using an offset spatula.

  6. Crushed Candy Cascades: Sprinkle the crushed peppermint candies atop the chocolate, gently pressing them in to create a symphony of texture and flavor.

  7. Culinary Patience: Allow your creation to set at its own pace, letting the chocolate solidify into a masterpiece of delectable proportions. Remember, patience is a virtue; refraining from the allure of the fridge ensures a perfect finish.

  8. Break the Mold: Once set, break the bark into delectable pieces that promise a satisfying snap in every bite. It's time to savor the fruits of your labor.

With its festive charm and tantalizing flavors, this Peppermint Dark Chocolate Bark is a culinary escapade worth embarking upon. Store it with care in an airtight container, ensuring its longevity for weeks to come. Let this delectable creation take center stage at your dessert table, mesmerizing all who have the pleasure of partaking.
