  • Place chocolate chips in a double boiler or a glass bowl over a boiling pot of water and melt until the chocolate is a smooth consistency.
  • Pour melted chocolate into an 8x8 inch pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Place pan in the freezer for 10 minutes to let chocolate solidify.
  • Slightly melt the coconut oil and coconut butter until it's a thick icing consistency. Add remaining ingredients and whisk together.
  • Take pan out of the freezer and spread coconut mixture over the chocolate using a rubber spatula.
  • Top with crushed candy canes or peppermint candies. Place in the freezer to set completely (about 1-2 hours)
  • Once set, remove from the freezer and break into pieces.
  • Store in freezer.



  • If you do not have a double boiler, you can create one by placing a small pot into a slightly larger pot that is filled with a small amount of water.
  • Use refined coconut oil if you don't want a strong coconut flavor.
  • If you are concerned about artificial colors and flavors in candy canes, I suggest buying a brand that fits those needs! During the holidays you should be able to find them in health food stores.
