Here's a little something kinda festive for you today: candy bark! I know this isn't full blown Halloween, but I have to be honest with you. We don't celebrate this holiday (it doesn't exactly align with our beliefs as Christians). BUT this is crazy delicious let me tell ya what, and you won't be disappointed. I mean c'mon Oreos and Reece's Pieces?! I took this to our church harvest party this weekend and it was quite loved by all.
16 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Halloween Oreos, quartered
8 oz. Almond bark
**This is SO adaptable. You can add whatever else you want: Butterfingers, Twix, etc. You can also use bittersweet chocolate chips if you want it less sweet, but who would?**
1. Make a foil candy mold, about 10x12 or so. (I used this method in my s'mores candy bars, remember?) I would set the foil mold inside of a casserole dish, because you are going to need to transport to the fridge. That won't work so well with melted chocolate poured into a flimsy foil mold.
2. Melt chocolate chips in a saucepan on low until melted and warm (not hot) stirring continually.
3. With your third hand while chocolate is melting, chop up Oreos and other desired ingredients.
4. Once chocolate chips are melted, pour into foil mold and spread evenly to about 1/4" thickness. I actually had extra so I made another mold, about an 8x8 square and filled with chocolate.
5. Sprinkle melted chocolate with Oreos, peanuts, Reece's pieces, and any other candy of your liking. Press down into chocolate a little bit so that it sticks.
6. Melt almond bark in a saucepan or microwave. Drizzle over the candy and chocolate layers in a zig-zag design and sprinkle with more Reece's.
7.Place in fridge and let chill for at least 45 minutes. Peel off foil when it is firm.
8. Break up into irregularly shaped pieces and serve.
I am so excited to experiment with other candies and even for other holidays. I'm think for Christmas it will be really pretty with reds and green candies, Easter with pastels, etc.
