Peppermint Bark Buns


For the dough:

  • 1 cup warm milk 110 degrees F/45 degrees C
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup butter melted
  • 4 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 packet dry active yeast

For the filling:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons butter softened

For the icing:

  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips melted
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • peppermint bark candy roughly chopped


  1. Dissolve yeast in warm milk in a large mixing bowl. Mix in sugar, butter, salt and eggs. Add flour slowly until combined. Knead dough until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a large greased bowl, cover, and let rise until doubled in size.
  2. Once dough has doubled in size, combine sugar and cocoa powder in small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Preheat over to 350. Roll out dough to a 16 by 21 inch rectangle. Spread butter evenly over dough and sprinkle with cocoa powder mixture. Roll up dough jelly roll style and divide into 12 rolls (I used dental floss for pretty cuts.) Cover and let rise until doubled.
  4. Bake rolls in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. While rolls are baking combine white chocolate, cream cheese, and powdered sugar. Spread frosting over warm rolls before serving. Sprinkle with peppermint bark candy.
