15 of Our Best Chocolate Peppermint Treats


I believe I was a teenager when I had a piece of Williams-Sonoma peppermint bark for the very first time. I was instantly hooked on this stuff!

I’ve always been a fan of the classic chocolate peppermint combination, but I’ve never understood why this peppermint bark has such a hold on me.

The only problem is how outlandishly expensive it is, despite the pretty tin it comes packaged in each holiday seaosn. Luckily, I have a work around.

These chocolate peppermint treats are some of our most popular holiday desserts – plus you can satisfy your chocolate peppermint craving at home!
