Cacao butter is a must for keto peppermint bark, and gives this recipe iconic chocolate flavor with a dose of healthy fats. This bark also gets an upgrade from coconut butter, which gives the pieces a softer, more milk-chocolate consistency. You’ll need to use a food scale for this recipe, since cacao butter comes in irregular shapes and won’t measure evenly.
In this peppermint bark, the white chocolate layer is swirled through the dark chocolate layer to create a pattern and left to set. That’s all! Once it chills, you can cut uniform pieces or break it into shards with your hands. Either way, a pile of peppermint bark will be a new holiday favorite in your home.
