Christmas Candy : Peppermint Bark and Chocolate Covered Oreos

I made Christmas candy for our Christmas on the Rhoton side.  The candy I made was peppermint bark and chocolate covered oreos.  Hello... easiest Christmas candy EVER!  No way could I mess this up! :)

Peppermint Bark (

  • 1 pound dark or semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 pound white chocolate
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons peppermint extract (I used 1 tsp.)
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 4 to 5 regular-size candy canes, crushed
 Line a baking sheet (with raised edges) with foil, and spray with non-stick spray.

Melt dark chocolate in microwave (30 second intervals on high, stirring in between). 

Add 1/2 tsp. of canola oil and spread evenly in pan.  Refrigerate until solid. 

Melt white chocolate using the same method, and add 1/2 tsp. of oil, as well as the peppermint extract.

Spread white chocolate mixture over dark chocolate layer (it is best to let the white chocolate cool a bit, so it doesn’t melt the dark chocolate and swirl layers together).

Sprinkle crushed candy cane pieces on top, and refrigerate (or freeze) until solid. 

Remove from cookie sheet, peel off foil layer, and chop into pieces.  Enjoy!

Dan rated the bark a 7... it was good but not something I would crave.

Chocolate Covered Oreos

  • Oreos
  • White and Dark Baker's Chocolate

Melt the chocolate.
Dip the Oreos.
Add sprinkles.

Yum!  Dan rated these a 7 as well :)

Again, these were nothing special, but very easy and enough to impress people with their looks at least.

The peppermint bark is so pretty but I have something against chocolate and peppermint together.. not a fan! The oreos are good, we make those every year :) We also make chocolate dipped pretzel rods and sprinkle them with glitter sprinkles- looks so pretty.
