Peppermint Bark Snowflakes

Peppermint bark is one of the holiday treats I dole out to the neighbors at Christmas. It’s pretty much a no-brainer: melt white chocolate, add crushed candy canes, peppermint extract and it’s basically finished.<

But years ago, I saw the coolest image on Pinterest, and I knew I had to make these beautiful snowflakes.  Mari, of Once Upon a Plate, executed them perfectly. Plus seeing an even older version at Baked by Rachel, made me update this post from 2011!

When I make my next batch, I’ll make thinner layers like Mari’s.  I found these snowflake molds at Target in those dollar bins eons ago, but now these Silicone Snowflake Molds can be yours via Amazon.

Layered Peppermint Bark

I adapted this from the white chocolate peppermint bark recipe I make every Christmas. I made a half a batch of white chocolate bark and a half batch of semi-sweet chocolate bark without the added candy cane bits.

I started with a layer of melted mint flavored dark chocolate at the bottom of the molds, followed by a sprinkle of candy cane pieces.  This layer was chilled, then I repeated with a white chocolate layer and more candy cane bits.

The yield will vary depending on the size of your molds and the depth of your bark. Isn’t this layered peppermint bark festive????

Tips for Making These Peppermint Bark Snowflakes:

  • This recipe will make six of these thick peppermint bark snowflakes.
  • To make 12 thick snowflakes, double the recipe and purchase two molds.
  • If you’d like thinner snowflakes, make the full recipe and divide between two molds.
  • Place the molds on a Half Sheet Pan for easy transfer to the refrigerator to chill.
  • I give the molds a little shimmy to even out the chocolate layer before it starts to set.
  • Chill before adding the second layer.
  • Add the crushed candy cane pieces before the top solidifies.
  • Wrap in a cellophane bag with a pretty ribbon for a hostess gift.

  16. These are so beautiful, Lizzy! I could not believe that it’s home made. You are a pro!

  17. Do these need to be refrigerated until right before serving? I made these for a cookie exchange. So I need to know how long I can keep them out. It usually lasts about 3 hours.

    • Hi, Vandana,

      These do not need to be refrigerated, so they’ll be fine at your cookie exchange. I made some for my book club this year and they sat on my kitchen counter for a week πŸ™‚ Hope your friends enjoy!
