Vegan Peppermint Bark

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Course Dessert
Servings 16


  • 16 ounces of vegan white chocolate
  • 12 ounces of dark or semisweet vegan chocolate
  • ½ teaspoon of peppermint extract divided
  • ½ cup of crushed candy canes approximately 3 ounces


  • Begin by lining a quarter sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler or microwave, stirring well between 30-second intervals. Once melted, immediately stir in ¼ teaspoon of peppermint extract.
  • Spread the melted dark chocolate evenly on the sheet pan. Place the tray in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes until just set.
  • While the dark chocolate is setting, melt the white chocolate and stir in the remaining peppermint extract.
  • Once the dark chocolate layer is mostly set, spread the white chocolate over the top in an even layer.
  • Immediately sprinkle the crushed candy canes evenly over the white chocolate.
  • Place the bark in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to fully set. Once set, break it into pieces using a knife or your hands. Store the pieces in a sealed container in the refrigerator.


  • Avoid leaving the first layer of chocolate in the fridge for too long to prevent issues with sticking and separation.
  • Stir in the peppermint extract right after melting the chocolate to prevent it from seizing up.
For storage:
  • Keep the Vegan Peppermint Bark in a sealed container in the refrigerator, where it will last for up to a few weeks.
  • If you plan on freezing it, store in an airtight container for up to 6 months. Defrost at room temperature before enjoying.
Remember to use pure peppermint extract, not peppermint oil, for the best results. Happy holidays and enjoy your delicious homemade Vegan Peppermint Bark!
