Candy Cane Bark Recipe

We're IN THE WORKSHOP with THE SIDEKICK Celebrating the SEAson with recipes and crafts inspired by our favourite holiday treat - the Candy Cane!!!


If you watched SEA AND BE SCENE TV’s 2014 Celebrating the SEAson Special then you’ll know…. WE LOVE CANDY CANES!!! No surprise then, that this easy to make recipe for Candy Cane Bark has been a holiday favourite around our house for a long, long time!

It wasn’t until I was put in charge of my parents annual Christmas soiree in Orillia, Ontario that I realized it made for the perfect party take-away. Just pop a few large pieces in a festive cello bag and you’ve got a tasty “thanks for coming” treat or the ideal sweet for those surprise pop-in people throughout the holidays.

Huge credit to the one and only lifestyle LEGEND Martha Stewart – who provided the recipe for this oh-so-delightful and seasonal fave Peppermint Bark recipe all the way back in the Dec. 1998/Jan.1999 issue of LIVING.

Get a load of our IN THE WORKSHOP with THE SIDEKICK and you’ll see us package up a batch of this incredibly easy (and beyond yummy) Candy Cane Bark on camera!

Candy Cane Bark Recipe


♦ 2 pounds white chocolate, chopped into small pieces to make melting easier

♦ 12 large peppermint candy canes

♦ 1/2 teaspoon peppermint oil

Candy Cane Bark recipe 1

♦ Stir pieces of candy canes and peppermint oil into the melted chocolate.

♦ Remove from heat, and pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet; spread evenly.

♦ Chill until firm, 25 to 30 minutes.

♦ Break into pieces, and serve.

Storage & Tips

♦ Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.

♦ Have some festive cello bags & ties on hand as this makes a great and tasty take-away for all your holiday guests and sweet festive treat for all!

♦ If you watched our 2017 Holiday Segments you would have seen the sweet stars – made following this recipe and then filling a Silpat tray of miniature stars (pack fill molds and scrape top of tray to ensure a clean star with no bits hanging over) Chill for at least 30 minutes in – then pop out and enjoy!!!
