Ingredients in Keto Peppermint Bark

Ingredients laid out in individual bowls to make keto peppermint bark - white chocolate, dark chocolate, peppermint candies and peppermint extract.

Ingredients Notes

  • Dark chocolate: For this keto peppermint bark you can use dark chocolate chunks, chips or even a chopped up chocolate bar. These are my favorite keto chocolate chips and these are my favorite low carb chocolate bars.

  • White chocolate: For the white chocolate in this recipe you can also use keto white chocolate chips, white chocolate squares, or chopped up white chocolate bars.

  • Butter flavored coconut oil: Adding a little bit of coconut oil to the melted chocolate adds a silkiness to the chocolate and keeps the chocolate from freezing too hard. I like to use butter flavored coconut oil because it adds a nice hint of buttery flavor. But you can also use plain coconut oil.

  • Peppermint candies: Since you are crushing up the sugar free peppermint candies, it doesn’t matter if you use starlight mints or candy canes.

  • Peppermint extract: I recommend using a pure peppermint extract as opposed to imitation peppermint extract.

Step by Step Instructions

STEP 1: Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper. Add the dark chocolate chips and 2 teaspoons of the butter flavored coconut oil to a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave in 20 second increments, until melted enough to stir. Stir until smooth. Alternatively, you can do this in a double boiler. 

STEP 2: Pour the melted chocolate into the prepared baking dish in an even layer across the bottom. Place it in the fridge for 30 minutes to let the chocolate harden. Alternatively, you can place it in the freezer for 15 minutes. 

STEP 3: Place the white chocolate and the remaining 2 teaspoons of butter flavored coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave in 20 second increments, until melted enough to stir. Stir until smooth. Stir in the peppermint extract. 

STEP 4: Remove the dark chocolate from the fridge and pour the melted white chocolate in an even layer over top. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies and return to the refrigerator for an additional 30 minutes. Once both layers have hardened, cut or break the bark into pieces.

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • Storage: Store leftover keto peppermint bark in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

  • Setting up: Do not let the dark chocolate later harden too much in the fridge. If it is completely hardened when you pour the white chocolate layer over top, the layers might separate.

  • Add a third layer. Add a third layer of melted keto salted caramel chocolate chips.

  • Toppings: Swap the peppermint candies out for chopped Keto Candied Pecans or Low Carb Dried Cranberries.
