Halloween Bark- Better Late than Never
When I saw this concoction on Recipe Girl's blog, I knew I had to make it. It is easy, colorful and filled with yummy things that everyone loves.
All you have to do is line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Top the wax paper with bits of pretzel, oreos, candy corn, and anything else you love that works well together.
I used candy corn along with mini pretzels, mini oreos and added salted peanuts. Once your wax paper is lined with your goodies, you melt white candy coating (or vanilla bark coating) in the microwave and pour or pipe it over the top. Sprinkle colorful jimmies over the cooling vanilla bark and voila. Let the bark chill for a few minutes in the fridge.
Once it is cool, break it into junks. I bagged them in individual servings tied with festive ribbon (but forgot to take pictures of that) for Derrick's staff. The best part is you can make this for any holiday. Replace the candy corn with holiday M&Ms, york peppermint patties or any other favorite holiday candy and you'll have a Christmas treat.
