The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
After feeling so crummy from a bad cold these past few weeks, I was relieved when I finally started feeling better. I had such big plans for this Christmas season, and sadly, so many of my ideas were put on hold because of my nasty cold. One thing I promised myself though, was that I’d be able to do some holiday baking and make these gluten free peppermint bark scones for Scone of the Month!
Fun fact: Todd and I love peppermint bark. Every Christmas season we’ll either buy some or make it, and it’s delicious to munch on. Because of that, I knew I had to create a peppermint bark scone with my favorite gluten free scone mix.
If this is your first time here, I’ve shared my love for this scone mix before. We love scones so much, that we’ve dedicated a new Scone of the Month flavor each month. This scone mix can’t be beat… it’s that good!
These gluten free peppermint bark scones are everything to love about the holiday season. The scone is tender and full of flavor with the addition of peppermint extract and the chopped up peppermint bark being mixed right in. Then, topped with melted white chocolate chips and even more peppermint bark… I mean, you can’t go wrong with these.
And no judgement here if you choose to use store bought peppermint bark rather than making your own. I did the same thing… and the only peppermint bark I could find was missing the white chocolate layer. No worries here though, the white chocolate chip topping solves all the problems… even if your peppermint bark has the white chocolate layer.
To make them extra fun, I cut the scones into a mini wedge size. They’re cute as can be, but also go a little bit further if you have a larger group to feed, or if you’re serving them with other breakfast or brunch items. Or at a Christmas tea. One of these years I’m going to host a Christmas tea and serve mini scones. The whole idea just sounds like fun. Hot tea and scones… mmmm!
One thing is for sure, if you love peppermint bark, you’ll love these scones! Here’s the recipe!
