Recipe notes:

  • If your family enjoys plain yogurt, feel free to cut back the added maple syrup to 1-2 Tbsp. 
  • No maple syrup? Swap for honey or any other liquid sweetener. 
  • This will thaw quickly. Keep in the freezer until serving.

How to make it: 

  1. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt 1.5 cups of chocolate chips. To melt, boil ~1/4 pot of water on the stove. Place chocolate chips in a heat-safe bowl that will fit on top of the pit. Stir frequently until chocolate chips have completely melted. 
  2. Pour the melted chocolate onto the baking sheet and spread in an even layer. Refrigerate until the chocolate is almost set, ~8 minutes. 
  3. While you’re waiting for the chocolate to set, combine the yogurt, vanilla extract, peppermint extract (if using), and honey. Mix until evenly combined. 
  4. Spread yogurt over the chocolate and spread evenly. Sprinkle crushed candy canes, mini chocolate chips, and salt. Freeze for about 2 hours, or until the yogurt has completely set. 
  5. Remove from the freezer and break into pieces. Store in a freezer bag until serving.

Recipe notes: 

  • Peppermint extract has a very strong flavour. Omit if you’re not a huge peppermint fan – the candy canes will still add a peppermint flavour
  • Add more honey, to taste. You can still taste the tart flavour of the plain yogurt with only 1 tbsp of honey. Add an additional tbsp if your family isn’t used to eating plain yogurt. 
  • This will thaw quickly. Keep in the freezer until serving.
