  • 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract
  • 1/3 cup of crushed peppermint candies or candy canes


  1. Prepare Baking Sheet: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Melt Dark Chocolate: In a double boiler, gently melt the dark chocolate. Once melted, remove from heat and stir in half of the cannabis-infused coconut oil. Mix well.

  3. Spread Dark Chocolate: Pour the melted dark chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet, spreading it to an even thickness. Chill in the refrigerator until completely set, about 15-20 minutes.

  5. Layer White Chocolate: Pour the melted white chocolate over the set dark chocolate, spreading it to cover. Quickly sprinkle the crushed peppermint candies on top before the white chocolate sets.

  6. Chill Again: Return the baking sheet to the refrigerator and chill until the white chocolate is fully set, approximately 15-20 minutes.

  7. Break into Pieces: Once set, break the bark into pieces. The size and shape of the pieces are up to your preference.

  8. Serve or Store: Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

  • Storage: This treat can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.


History of Peppermint Bark:

Peppermint bark, a beloved holiday confection, has its roots in the culinary traditions of both Europe and North America. The combination of peppermint and chocolate has been a long-standing favorite, particularly in European countries where mint and chocolate have been paired in various sweets for centuries. Peppermint bark as we know it today likely emerged in the United States, although its exact origin is not well-documented. It gained popularity in the late 20th century, becoming a staple during the holiday season. This treat traditionally features a layer of dark or milk chocolate topped with white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed peppermint candies or candy canes, creating a delightful contrast in flavors and textures.

The simplicity and festive appearance of peppermint bark have contributed to its widespread popularity. It requires no baking and can be easily made at home, making it a favorite for both amateur and professional confectioners. Over time, variations of the recipe have emerged, incorporating different types of chocolate, additional flavorings, and even non-traditional ingredients. The introduction of cannabis-infused peppermint bark is a modern twist, blending the classic holiday treat with the growing trend of culinary cannabis. This contemporary version of peppermint bark not only delivers the familiar minty, chocolaty goodness but also offers a unique way for adults to enjoy the medicinal and recreational benefits of cannabis in a festive, delicious form.
