Dark Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Bark


When I visited my family in Seattle last month my mom had a little bag of goodies for me since I wouldn’t be home to open my stocking at Christmas. One of my favorite things was a dark chocolate bark with pretzels and peppermint. The salty, sweet, minty combination is perfect! I shared it with my husband when I got back to Vegas and he also LOVED it, so I decided to make my own! It only takes three ingredients and hardly any time or skill. It’s a great treat for the holidays!


Dark Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Bark


  • 10 oz. dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup crushed pretzels
  • 1/2 cup crushed candy canes


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Sprinkle with half of the pretzels and candy canes, then set aside.
  2. Microwave chocolate chips, stopping to stir every 30 seconds until melted. Pour over the pretzels and candy canes on the baking sheet and use a spatula to create a thin, smooth layer. Sprinkle with remaining pretzels and candy canes.
  3. Place in refrigerator to harden, about 30 minutes. Once solid, break chocolate into pieces. Enjoy!
