With a title that contains the words, chocolate, peppermint and cookie, how can you not fall in love with chocolate peppermint cookie bark.
Chocolate bark is a very adaptable recipe. Here is how I adapt it for Christmas gift giving.
I added in 1 cup crumbled Oreo cookies and 1/2 cup ground peppermint candies to the melted chocolate chips and coconut oil mixture.
To create the bark, my daughter crumbled the Oreos for me by placing them in a ziplock bag and using her hands to break them up into small pieces. She then placed the peppermint candies in a ziplock bag and used a rolling pin to crunch them up a bit before I placed them in my food processor where I made them into a course sugar like texture.
Once the bark was spread out on a pan I then took around 1/4 of a cup of crushed peppermints and dusted the top of the bark and then lightly pressed them into the bark with a back of a metal spoon.
This is one of my favorite recipes to give as gifts as it is simple to make and simple to package
