Halloween Bark

Halloween is over. The costumes and wigs put away, fun face makeup washed off, and everyone is exhausted from the sugar high beginning to wind down. What is left the next day but...... Lots of Candy! And everyone loves candy! At least some kind of candy. My favorite is either M&M's (Plain, Peanut Butter, Pretzel) or Milky Ways. Robert usually opts for all things Peanut Butter or super sweet ones like Sugar Babies.

Even though we all love candy, there is only so much candy you can eat. I have been trying to think of fun things to do with the candy. I saw a recipe in Bon Appetit for Peanut Butter and Toffee Halloween Bark and decided to try out my own version of Halloween Bark to put some of this candy to use.

1 bag of chocolate chip, milk
15 mini Reese's peanut butter cups, cup in quarters
3/4 cup of Peanut Butter M&Ms or Reese's Pieces
3/4 cup candy corn

1. Heat the chocolate chips in either a double boiler or in the microwave, constantly stirring until melted.

2. Line a cooking sheet with wax or parchment paper and smooth melted chocolate to cover. (about 1/4-1/2 inch thick)

3. Now go crazy! Starting sprinkling all the candies on top of the chocolate! Keep going until the whole surface area is covered.

4. Don't be afraid to get creative! I made three different batches (only photographed this one). I made another with semi sweet chocolate chips, butterscotch chips swirled in, crushed pretzels, and peanuts, and a last batch (peanut free) with white chocolate, crushed Oreos, and candy corn. You can put anything you want it. If you like Butterfingers, go ahead or if you want to crush some items or leave others whole, that's great! It's all up to you!

5. Place in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes or so to fully harden. Take it out and break it in pieces.
