White Chocolate Peppermint Bark

One of the main reasons I love this time of year so much is because of all the yummy desserts that show up. Peppermint this and Egg Nog that – the list of goodies is endless!

One of the treats I’ve always loved but only get to enjoy every few years is Bark. It’s one of my favorites! When I saw some Candy Cane Oreos at the store I knew they would be the perfection addition for a peppermint bark recipe, which is exactly what we made this week!

The result was an Oreo-filled white chocolate peppermint bark that was a hit with everyone who tried it. It only took about 5-10 minutes to make, and used just FIVE ingredients. If you’re anything like me and you love white chocolate and Oreos, this treat is sure to be a favorite!

How to make Peppermint Bark

Melt the white chocolate/vanilla candy coating, then mix in the vegetable oil, butter, and a portion of your crushed Oreos. Pour onto a cookie sheet with tinfoil, add the remaining crushed Oreo and candy cane bits, and let it harden in the fridge for 30 minutes. That’s it! Done in no more than 10 minutes.

Can I use regular Oreos? If you can’t find these seasonal Candy Cane Oreos, the original flavor will work just as well. There will be less peppermint flavor, but you can add more candy cane bits to make up for it.

Does peppermint bark need to be refrigerated? Since there aren’t any ingredients in there that perish quickly, you can keep the bark in an airtight container at room temperature for a week or so. But if you want it to last longer, you can store it in the fridge.

Can you freeze peppermint bark? Yes! Once it is cooled, you can break it into pieces and wrap them in wax paper, then plastic wrap or tinfoil. For good measure, put the wrapped pieces in an airtight container before storing in the fridge. The key is to keep moisture out!

If you’re looking for a quick and easy treat, this is definitely a recipe to keep! I think it will also make a great neighbor gift in a cute jar or tin with a tag, like this Treat Gift Idea!

  1. I was never a really big peppermint fan until this year and now I’m seeing it in all kinds of goodies. Your bark looks great! 🙂 Have a great weekend!

    1. Not a dumb question at all. It’s either called Vanilla Candy Coating or White Chocolate Squares. It’s in the baking section usually right above the chocolate chips. I get mine at Wal-Mart and it’s a few bucks for a package which has about 12 squares (which is what this recipe takes). Hope that helps! 😀

  2. Great recipe! I love peppermint bark, but want to look for something new as well. Just a question. I use the Plymouth Pantry almond bark, and it says not to use butter or oil to thin, rather shortening. What candy coating do you use?

    1. This was one I got from Walmart.. I think it was caled Candy Quick. I think it would be fine without the oil and butter, but I thought I’d try it out and it tasted and worked great. 🙂

  3. I love the look of this recipe, and went off to the grocery store to get all of the ingredients this morning. I am disappointed to see that I am having a hard time finding the peppermint oreos. I have been to two grocey stores already. i live in Toronto – does anyone know if they sell them here?

    1. Do you have a Target in Toronto? That is where I found them here. Sorry you haven’t been able to find them. 🙁 I would also consider using the Red Holiday Oreos and just added more candy cane pieces to make it more Peppermint-y. 🙂

  4. Where did you find the Candy Cane Oreos? I have looked a few stores and haven’t been able to track them down… I don’t even see them listed on Oreo’s website…

    Where dId i go wrong? I followed tHe directioNs carefully. My first vatch was more brown than Pink. The second batch i added broken cookies not crushed to the poured bark and that looked better. It never turned pink. I added food colOuring. It tastes great and looks okay. Batch not vatch 😊

  8. I want to make this but I am having a hard time finding the vanilla candy coating squares. Can I use whIte chocolate chips?
