Gluten-Free Christmas Bark
I’m all about easy desserts, especially during the holiday season. This Peppermint Cookie Bark can’t get any easier. Not only does it make a fantastic treat to bring to holiday parties, but it also doubles as a food gift.
There are only three ingredients in this Peppermint Cookie Bark (yes, only three) and it can be ready to serve in less than 30 minutes (includes chill time).
You can mix up the cookies and types of chocolate in this gluten-free peppermint bark, and make it just the way you want it.
My youngest daughter started middle school this year and she’s had a hard time finding her tribe. She’s met a lot of nice kids, but she’s still trying to figure out where she truly fits in. We’ve all been there. This year I asked my daughter if she’d like to have a little holiday party and invite her class mates. This would give her the chance to get to know them better.
Can I use white chocolate in this gluten-free cookie bark?
Yes, you can use your chocolate of choice. Enjoy life foods doesn’t make white chocolate (yet) but I am sure you can find a brand that works for you.
How to make gluten-free cookie bark
- Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
- Break cookies into pieces; set aside.
- Crush candy canes (I put them in a zip lock back and hit them with a rolling pin. It sounds more hostile than it really is).
- In a large microwaveable safe bowl (or in a double boiler) heat chocolate 30 seconds at a time until melted. Stir in between each 30 second interval.
- Spread melted chocolate onto parchment lined baking sheet.
- Sprinkle cookies over the top, and press them down to help them stick.
- Sprinkle crushed candy canes over any exposed chocolate.
- Chill for 25 minutes, or until set.
- Once set, break the peppermint cookie bark into smaller pieces, or bring to room temperature and cut it with a sharp knife.
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
We put together invitations and she handed them out at school. Then we made a list of all the treats and activities that she’d like to have at her party.
Don’t worry, I’m going to have non-sweets too. But the sweets were the first to be planned. I’m hoping she’ll have a great time and make some new friends. I also hope to send all the leftovers home with her classmates (probably in goodie bags) so that I don’t snack on the rest.
