Easy Three Ingredient Peppermint Bark Cookies

I don’t know how many unsuccessful attempts I’ve made at peppermint bark in my life.  I love the idea, but it never works for me.  These Easy Three Ingredient Peppermint Bark Cookies are the answer to my peppermint bark challenges!

Easy Three Ingredient Peppermint Bark Cookies
Usually, when I attempt to make peppermint bark, the dark chocolate layer and white chocolate layer always end up mixed together in one big blob.  So I love recreating the flavors of peppermint bark in what has to be the quickest, easiest holiday “cookie” ever!  And with just three ingredients, you really can’t go wrong. You can whip up a batch of these chocolate and peppermint cookies in almost no time, And they make great neighbor gifts too!  If you can’t find the candy cane kisses, white chocolate candy melts will work just as well. This mock peppermint bark is also a perfect recipe for kids to help with. They especially love crushing the peppermint! This may just be the easiest Christmas treat you make this holiday season. Enjoy!

Easy 3 Ingredient Peppermint Bark Cookies

Preparation 15 min Cook Time 5 min Total Time 20 mins


  • 1 package Nestle Chocolate Wafers
  • 1 (10 oz.) bag Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses
  • 12 small candy canes, crushed


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Arrange the chocolate wafer cookies on a single layer on a baking sheet. Place a candy cane kiss in the center of each wafer.
  3. Place the cookies in the oven for about 3 minutes, or until the kisses have started melting.
  4. Remove from oven (you may have to let the cookies cool slightly so you can handle them) and using the back of a spoon, spread the melted candy cane kiss toward the edges of the cookie (don’t go all the way to the edge).
  5. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes. Place cookies in refrigerator to set chocolate.
Be sure to save the easy holiday treat idea to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
