what you'll need

  • 1 lb dark chocolate finely chopped
  • 1 cup mini pretzels
  • 1 cup mini chocolate sandwich cookies or cookie pieces
  • 1/4 cup toffee bits
  • 1/4 cup peanuts salted, chopped, roasted
  • 1/4 cup almonds salted, chopped, roasted

let's do it

  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Heat chocolate in microwave for 30 seconds, then remove and give it a stir. Continue melting chocolate in 15-second intervals, stirring after each time. When chocolate is about 80% melted, remove from microwave and stir until smooth.
  • Pour melted chocolate onto parchment paper and spread about 1/8" thick. You should end up with a rectangle that’s roughly 10" x 15". Evenly distribute the mini pretzels and chocolate cookies over the wet chocolate and press lightly to adhere.
  • Sprinkle with toffee bits, chopped peanuts and almonds and set aside for at least an hour to harden at room temperature. You may place bark in refrigerator or freezer to speed up the process. Once chocolate is firm, break into pieces and serve.

One Last Thing

This is a really fun recipe for kids to make. They’ll love stirring, pouring (and tasting!) the chocolate.
