  • double boiler or microwave


  • 2 cups sugar-free chocolate chips I used Lily's
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil solid preferred
  • 8-10 certified gluten-free candy canes


  • In a double boiler on low/medium heat melt the chocolate.  Once the chocolate is semi-melted add coconut oil and mix thoroughly.
  • Once mixed, reduce temperature to low heat. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and grease with coconut oil.
  • In a ziplock bag add all candy canes without the wrappers.  Close bag and using a hammer crush the candy canes into tiny chunks.  Set aside.
  • Pour chocolate mixture into the lined pan.  Spread the chocolate into the pan by lifting the tray and moving it from side to side. Then in handfuls add the chunks to the peppermint bark.
  • Using the bottom of a fork or utensil swirl the peppermint chunks into the chocolate. Freeze bark for 4 hours to set. Store in the fridge for up to 8 months.


I like to use Lilly's Gluten-free chocolate, Hu Kitchen, or Enjoy Life. // Those are my go-to's. But any brand will do. //  Lilly's is Stevia sweetened and great for those on the candida diet at a later stage.// Enjoy Life and Lilly's are made in dedicated facilities, while Hu Kitchen is made in a shared facility but certified gluten-free.
