Don’t you just love a good S’more during the summer? The classic treat of crisp graham crackers, gooey marshmallows, and chocolate is a summer staple. Another thing I love is peppermint bark around Christmas time. In this yummy recipe, I combined the two favorites. Peppermint S’mores Bark is the perfect dessert for a S’mores lover in the wintertime!
Peppermint S’mores Bark
I used semi-sweet chocolate morsels for this recipe. I would only use semi-sweet or darker. Using milk chocolate chips would probably make it way too rich. Golden Grahams were used instead of graham crackers because they are a bit crunchier. Plus, you can always find a coupon for Golden Grahams!
I got my candy canes from Aldi’s and they were less than a $1. I placed some of the unwrapped candy canes into a baggy and then used a rolling pin to smash into smaller pieces.
To melt the chocolate I put about half of the package into the microwave for 45 seconds, stirred and then continued melting the chocolate in 15 second increments. I made this bark in two layers. Once this chocolate was melted I spread the chocolate on the wax paper and then added half of the Golden Grahams, half of the marshmallows, and then added some of the peppermint pieces.
After melting the rest of the chocolate, I spread that on top of the first layer. Then added more cereal, marshmallows, and candy pieces. I used a clean spoon to softly press the toppings in the chocolate.
Let the chocolate harden and then break into small pieces to be enjoyed by all of your family and friends.
