I thought this dip would be great for the Christmas holidays! Actually, now that I think about it, it would be good for Valentine’s Day or any day. Peppermint doesn’t have to be just for the holidays, right?

Hershey’s sent me a bag of Peppermint Bark Bells and I’ve had more fun developing recipes with them. That’s really what I love to do: give me one ingredient and I can have fun thinking of ways to use it all day. If that ingredient happens to be chocolate, well, get out-of-town, I’ll practically dream about it!!

No-bake holiday desserts are lifesavers during the winter. If you are looking for an easier version of this delicious holiday treat, this is the dessert dip for you!

This dip is sweet, creamy, and full of that bold peppermint flavor. It tastes just like Christmas. This Peppermint Bark Dip recipe combines everything delicious about peppermint with the rich sweetness of chocolate, making it the perfect holiday recipe. Furthermore, this is one of the easiest peppermint recipes you’ll ever serve.

Chocolate Peppermint Dessert Dip is super easy to make and only has 4 ingredients. If you need a quick recipe for a party, this is a snap to make. It takes more time to grate the Peppermint Bark Bells than it does to make the entire recipe. Seriously, you could probably just throw them in a blender or food processor or chop them with a knife and it would be quicker.
