by HEAB on December 11, 2010

Last week, CD and I received some homemade peppermint bark from our friends Paul and Carolyn…

Thanks so much Paul & Carolyn – it’s delicious, and let’s just say there has been some major damage done to that bag.

Today, I decided to make some HEABified Peppermint Bark inspired by Alex’s Raw Coconut-Iced Bark.



1 bag unsweetened shredded coconut, 1 chocolate bar of choice, peppermint extract.


Make homemade coconut butter.

Chop chocolate bar and stir together with coconut butter and 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract.

Spread bark on baking sheet lined with wax paper.


Place in fridge to harden – I left mine in there 15 minutes.


Break apart and serve with Alex’s Grain Free Bitter Chocolate Cake, or muffins in my case. Alex, I noticed this recipe when I was looking for your coconut bark. Oh my gosh, I love it. You are a girl after my own 100% dark chocolate lovin’ heart. :)

What’s your favorite holiday treat? I’ve always loved peppermint bark, but my favorite would have to be my mom’s black bottomed cupcakes. She’s made them every year for Christmas for as long as I can remember. In fact, I think she baked some today. Mom, I’ll be over first thing the morning!
