Well, in my house, not very long... 😋😉.
Holiday bark should be stored in an airtight container or zip top bag.
At room temperature, the bark can keep for up to a few weeks.
However, if refrigerated or frozen, it can keep longer.
Tips for making sugar free bark.
You should use a rimmed baking sheet rather than a flat cookie sheet for best results with this recipe. This is because the bark will need edges to keep the bark from dripping off the the sheet.
More helpful tips for you.
- Use parchment paper or foil that has been lightly sprayed with nonstick to line your sheets with. This will make it easier for you to remove the bark after it has hardened.
- My bark has been topped with swirls of color to make this more holiday inspired. You can alternatively however, use food coloring or sugar free holiday sprinkles or sugar free starlight candy that has been crushed to decorate your bark.
- Feel free to add extras such as nuts, broken up pretzels, or any similar ingredient to make your bark even better.
How to store sugar free holiday bark.
This bark should be stored in an airtight container away from heat and excess moisture. If properly stored, it should keep for up to a month.

- Topping Ideas- Sugar Free Sprinkles, Food Color Swirls, Sugar Free Icing tinted with dye for the holidays, or even crushed sugar free starlight candy.
How to make Sugar Free Christmas Bark
Prep Time: 7 minutes
Cook Time: 3 minutes
Inactive Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
- You can start by prepping a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Next, melt your darker or semi sweet chocolate chips according to the directions on the packaging. I use a microwave-safe bowl and microwave however, stopping every 20 seconds to stir, until the chocolate is full melted.
- Now, carefully, evenly spread your melted chocolate on to your prepared baking sheet. Then you can place the baking sheet in your freezer until the chocolate is set (about 10 minutes).
- Next, you can repeat the melting process for the white chocolate chips until melted and then allow it to sit at room temperature for five minutes. Then you can stir in the peppermint extract before evenly distributing the melted white chocolate over the set darker chocolate.
- To make colorful swirls using icing, you can use a toothpick to simply swirl the color about half way deep in the white layer (not touching the darker layer below).
- Lastly, add any additional toppings and then you can return the baking sheet to the freezer to set.
Expert Tip 👉 You can break the bark into pieces using your hands. Alternatively, you can use a warm sharp knife (that has been run under hot water from the faucet and dried) or the flat side of a meat tenderizer.
