Peppermint Bark Truffles
Christmas will be here before we know it and with that, comes all the holiday baking! Christmas may be different this year, but we still need cookies and candy right? I like to bake, but I certainly don’t love it like I love cooking. I am always looking for easy Christmas cookie recipes and I especially love no bake recipes.
What do you need to make peppermint bark truffles?
These Peppermint Bark Truffles are so easy and only use four ingredients. The coconut oil is optional, but it does help to add shine to the chocolate, which lends to a prettier truffle! You can find the peppermint and white chocolate chips in the baking aisle with all the other chocolate chips.
How to make Peppermint Bark Truffles
They are so simple that my daughters can help me make them and they love helping roll them into balls and dip into the chocolate. All you do is melt the chocolate and mix it with the milk, and then chill.
After an hour, the mixture is ready to be scooped into balls and then covered in melted dark chocolate. You can garnish then with crushed peppermints or drizzle with icing. I recommend using a cookie scoop in order to keep all your cookies even.
Every season has a signature flavor. We all love pumpkin and apple in the fall, but once the holiday season comes around, cranberries and peppermint steal the show! I seriously look forward to eating those delicious peppermint bark squares all year long! These truffles are just as good as the squares and nearly as easy as opening the bag of squares!
I have my holiday baking all lined up already! I am going to start with the best peanut butter cookies ever because they freeze so well! Next, I’ll make my dad’s favorite, a super delicious traditional kolachy recipe stuffed with both preserves and pineapple. When we have guests over, I’ll definitely make my famous Christmas Cookie Dip or Cookies and Cream Dip.
One pro tip for this recipe: Don’t store with other cookies. Peppermint is a strong scent and will mix with the flavors of your other cookies!

Peppermint Bark Truffles
These simple four ingredient Peppermint Bark Truffles are the perfect easy Christmas candy recipe!
- 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 3 cups white chocolate and peppermint chips
- 3 cups dark chocolate melting wafers, chips, or a baking bar
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- peppermints or candy canes crushed for garnish
Combine the sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate peppermint chips in a large bowl. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir the mixture together. If the chocolate hasn’t fully melted, microwave it for another 30 seconds.
Place the mixture in the fridge for 1-2 hours, or until it has set.
Scoop the mixture into 1” balls. I recommend using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop to ensure all of the truffles are the same size.
Note: Have a glass of warm water nearby and dip your cookie scoop into it before scooping each ball. It will make them easier to scoop and release the truffles easier.
Melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave on 30 second intervals-- stirring between each interval— until it is fully melted. It should take 1-2 minutes.
Dip the truffles one at a time into the melted dark chocolate. Allow any excess to drip off and then place the truffles on a parchment lined baking sheet to set. Garnish with crushed peppermints or candy canes.
Allow the truffles to set fully before enjoying. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Make sure to use sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated milk.
If you can’t find White Chocolate Peppermint Chips, you can substitute 2 1/2 cups of white chocolate chips and 1/2 cup finely crushed candy canes.
I like the combination of dark chocolate with the peppermint in this recipe but you can use any chocolate you like— milk and semi-sweet would also be delicious.
The coconut oil helps the chocolate set and creates a shinier exterior. If you don’t have any, feel free to leave it out.
