Christmas Chocolate Bark Recipe | Blogmas

chocolate bark, peppermint bark

Christmas has always been a time of baking and good food. In between all my hectic shifts I love getting into the kitchen and baking lots of yummy food, with my life at the minute being so busy between my ITU shifts, blogmas and vlogmas I have loved making Christmas chocolate bark. It's so easy and foolproof, even my mum can make it (she's not a massive cook/baker!).

Now you can adjust these ingredients to make as much or little chocolate bark as you want. You can also add whatever decorative ingredients you want, you could always add in some nuts or something extra that you know someone loves then package it up and give it as gifts this Christmas.

200g of white chocolate
200g of milk chocolate
Crushed candy canes


  • Line a baking sheet of your choice with non-stick parchment paper.
  • Melt the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan with some simmering water in (Tip: you don't want the water touching the heatproof bowl). Keep your eyes on it as you don't want your chocolate to burn. You only need to stir the chocolate occasionally whilst melting it.
  • Once melted, leave on the side for a short while for it to thicken slightly. It will be quite runny when it's still boiling hot, you also might burn yourself which isn't a good idea this time of year!
  • Once thickened, pour the melted white chocolate onto the sheet of parchment paper and make a rough rectangle/square shape (depending on the shape of your tray).
  • Melt the milk chocolate in exactly the same way.
  • You want to have the milk chocolate pretty much half melted when you put the white chocolate on the tray as you don't want it to set before you've added the milk otherwise they can spilt when you break the bark.
  • Once the milk chocolate is melted, spread it on top of the white chocolate and aim for roughly the same shape as the white chocolate.
  • Crush up a bunch of candy canes (Tip: I found it easier to put them in a thick sandwich bag and bash them with a rolling pin).
  • Top your bark with the crushed candy canes and festive sprinkles, you can even drizzle a bit of left over chocolate over the top.
  • Now the hard bit....leaving it to set in the fridge for a couple of hours. 
  • Then the best bit......break into several medium to large pieces and enjoy!

Now you can completely customise this by changing up everything, you change it for whatever chocolate you fancy (milk, white, dark, flavoured), you can add things inbetween the two layers of chocolate, you could go for even more layers or change up the decorations on top.

What's your favourite thing to make at this time of year?

Speak to you next time!
