Peppermint Bark is a holiday favorite and I knew I’d be making some this Christmas, but thought I’d change things up a bit and create a dessert instead of the traditional candy. I wanted my dessert to have layers like chocolate bark. The chocolate layer had to be amazing, so I chose to use my favorite flourless chocolate cake recipe. It’s really rich and and creamy and it pairs so nicely with white chocolate mousse which made the perfect second layer. Of course, the dessert had to have peppermint pieces so I sprinkled crushed candy canes on top.

My mom, who is a huge peppermint bark fan, just stopped by and I gave her a dessert to try. She gave it two thumbs up and is looking forward to enjoying another one on Christmas eve. Me too.
