Vegan Peppermint Bark

Hi! Let's talk about how dang much I love peppermint bark, it's borderline weird. I am obsessed with it I feel like it's a holiday explosion in your mouth, ya feeling me?

This time of year peppermint bark makes it's debut all over town looking so delectable waiting to be taken home and enjoyed, but the problem is... it's usually full of crap. I don't want milk fat (those words are disgusting together) in anything I'm eating. 

It's a sad day when you're just a girl standing in front of holiday candy wishing it wasn't made of freaky ingredients. 

Now that I've probably officially creeped you out with my love for peppermint bark, I need to know what are your favorite holiday treats? Maybe you have some holiday treats you'd love to see made vegan?? Spill!! I love baking and cooking and nothing makes me happier than creating something vegan that even the skeptics out there will enjoy.

I have this easy vegan holiday cookie hack, and this holiday cookie recipe if you need a fun idea for a holiday party.

Ok, let's get into the recipe! It's super easy!

Ingredients: 

  • 2 cups dairy free chocolate chips
  • 3 candy canes
  • wax paper  

Directions: 

Place your candy canes in a ziplock bag and place in between a dish towel then take a mallet or big spoon and break up the candy canes into small pieces. 

Heat up the chocolate chips in a double boiler consistently stirring until you have a thick chocolate liquid. If you don't have a double boiler then boil water in a pot and place a smaller pan above and stir the chocolate until melted. 

Spread a thick layer of the melted chocolate onto the wax paper and immediately sprinkle crushed candy canes on top.

Place in fridge for 30-40 minutes until cool and hard, and then break apart. Enjoy!
