Light and crispy chocolate wafers dipped in peppermint-infused white chocolate and then sprinked with crushed candy canes…..these are the ultimate holiday cookie.  Easy to make No Bake Peppermint Bark Cookies are made with only four ingredients and no baking required.  You will have trouble keeping these around.

Super easy to make, a fun project for kids...No Bake Peppermint Bark Cookies are the tastiest cookies ever. Just like a thin mint without even turning on the oven. |


Catalog season is upon us my friends.  It’s serious.  I have piles of kindling lying all over the house because I want to give them all a chance to win my love. But I can’t keep up.  Seriously.  Everytime I open the mailbox, at least half a dozen more come falling out.  It’s a little insane.  I have my favorites that I page through during the evening and then there are those catalogs that only come around once a year….National Geographic, anyone.  And of course, I have to see what they’re selling because I have a special place in my heart for things found around the world.  But I always, always gravitate to those with food first.  It’s my absolute favorite thing in the whole world….food is.  So, I like to see what’s new in the world of good eats and culinary creations.  I love to see what new cooking tools and photo props I can spend my whole paycheck on.  That’s how I found the inspiration for these No-Bake Peppermint Bark Cookies. They’re a total Williams-Sonoma Copy Cat!!!

The cookies I saw were completely drenched in smooth white chocolate, they were made from the same chocolate used for the famous Peppermint Bark everyone knows and loves.  They looked to die for.  I needed them immediately but didn’t feel like waiting two days for them to arrive.  So, I raided the pantry and came up with this easy recipe anyone can make.  Even an almost 4-year-old boy who has the attention span of a flea.  Your kids will love helping with this one.

To make these No Bake Peppermint Bark Cookies, I used store bough Chocolate Melts and just threw them in the microwave for about a minute.  Peppermint extract was added to the melted chocolate and then we dipped the wafer to coat.  Sprinkle with the crushed candy canes and allow to cool on a wire rack.  Does it get any easier than that?  They taste exactly like a Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookie…..I kid you not.  And if you know how addicting the Thin Mints are, you know that these will not last long in your house.

If you weren’t planning on baking this year but still want to give friends and family a gift from your kitchen, these No Bake Peppermint Bark Cookies are just for you.  You don’t have to roll dough, you can give your mixer a break and the gas (or electric bill) will not be boosted up because you had to heat the oven.  The only problem you will have is getting these cookies to their new homes before you eat all of them yourself.  They go really well on a holiday cookie tray with classics like these Magic Bars and my favorite biscotti of all time.

If you want another no bake cookie option, these Haystacks are super simple and totally addicting.


And it’s almost time for baking season….be sure to follow me on Facebook because I’ll be sharing all my blogger friends new tasty treats from not until the end of the year. You won’t want to miss it!

  20. Oh, I LOOOOOVE this idea! Not only delicious, but perfect when I have a last-minute dessert to bring (like always).

  21. Haha! I pictured catalogs coming out of your mailbox and burying you. The struggle is real. I know. Love these cookies! Dainty and pepperminty. Love ’em.

  22. These are minty and delicious looking!

  23. These are absolutely fabulous. I love peppermint so I’m always game for peppermint recipes.

  24. I love how simple these are! They are delicious but perfectly easy for when it’s so busy around the holidays.

  25. These are almost too pretty to eat…almost!

  26. What chocolate wafers do you use/recommend?

  27. What brand is the chocolate wafer cookie? And where do you find them?

  28. How did you do the dipping?

  29. These look SO good! I love that they’re no-bake. I’m a huge fan of peppermint bark and these are basically like a fancier version of just that!

  30. These are awesome cookies! Need them on my Christmas cookie tray.

  31. This looks really perfect for the holidays!

  32. You are a wicked enabler. It is 5 months until Girl Scout cookie season, and yet, you are here giving me every reason to make my own!

  33. You say to only dip the top of the cookie, but in the pictures it looks like they have been fully dipped in white chocolate. Do you have pictures of how they should look with only the tops dipped?

    • Ok, so the recipe was written years ago and I just dipped the top BUT when I made them for the video I dipped the whole thing so there SHOULD be a picture down below that you can see what they look like with just the tops dipped but I really love to dip the whole cookie now. So, I’ll need to update that recipe.

  34. Learning is at times hard but you have simplified it clearly, thanks for the wonderful recipe and I will try it out. Thanks 

  35. I found these difficult to make…. much more difficult than “baked” cookies. The dipping of the cookies is messy and frustrating lol! I ended up putting a loonie sized dab of choc on top instead.  

  36. Do these freeze? I’d love to be able to make them before Christmas
