Hi there! Thanks to Missy for having me here today, I’m super excited to be sharing a post on So You Think You’re Crafty as I’ve been so inspired by the many crafty and creative bloggers that I’ve discovered here.

My name is Claire and I blog over at Claireabellemakes about crafting, baking and my home city of Cambridge in the UK. This year I learnt to crochet and I am a sucker for any crafts that involve a glue gun. I love to share DIYs and recipes and I make and sell handmade accessories on Etsy.

I am sharing with you a quick and easy recipe for Peppermint Candy Cane Bark to use up all those candy canes that didn’t get eaten over the holiday season.

Peppermint Candy Cane Bark


  • 400g White chocolate (2 x large bars)
  • ½ cup crushed candy canes (around 5 full size canes)
  • Peppermint essence (optional)


  • Place candy canes into a bag and hammer until crushed. Alternatively, you can place them into a food processor and pulse.
  • Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water on medium heat.
  • Mix the crushed candy canes and chocolate together and add peppermint flavour if desired.
  • Pour mixture onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour until hard.
  • Break into pieces and enjoy!

I hope you enjoy this recipe today. Thanks for having me Missy!
