VGP #24 Kari-Can't-Stop-Eating-This Bark

One year like around 2003 my friend in Boulder, Michelle Blimes, brought me a pretty cellophane bag of this stuff. It was sooo good and I think I ate it for dinner that night. Then I needed some more to keep in my desk at work. It's the addictive stuff like this that causes me a real problem; I seriously can't stop eating it! Never having really made any kind of candy before, I asked Michelle for detailed instructions. Here they are:

A bag of chocolate chips
A bag of pretzels
A can of cocktail peanuts

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, just until melted. Stir in some pretzels and peanuts. Spread out on wax paper and chill until firm. Break into bark.

Thanks, Michelle. You are a GENIUS!!!

My dad just shared a similar recipe with me that sounds similarly divine:

1. Put small pretzels, on wax paper, on a cookie sheet or cake pan.
2. Put a "Rolo" candy on each pretzel.
3. Warm in oven until "Rolo" is soft.
4. Remove from oven and press a salted roasted almond on top of each "Rolo."
5. Let cool, and enjoy!

Lindsay - very similar to these turtle candies. Really anything with melted chocolate is good - I was thinking salted almonds or pistachios and candied ginger perhaps sometime.

Oh wow. I would do almonds instead of/in addition to peanuts, but wow.

Oh my goodness I forgot that I made this for my visiting teachees. I must have been feeling really lazy that year :) Actually, it is so delicious that it doesn't matter that it is so easy. I was making buckeyes (chocolate covered peanut butter balls) this year and I had some left over melted chocolate, so I tossed the end of a bag of pretzels and some peanuts in and let it cool. I couldn't stop eating it! Thanks for giving me credit for this simple delicacy ;)
