Valentine’s Day Candy Bark

For some odd reason I decided to make our bark in a pie pan.  Bad idea–stick to waxed paper on a jellyroll pan.  I love how the salty pretzels help offset the sweet of the candy bark.  Once the candy has melted, you’ll want to work quickly so that it doesn’t set before you place your decorations on it.  Thanks to Wilton for the original idea!

Valentine’s Day Candy Bark

Ingredients:

  • white candy bark
  • chocolate candy bark
  • pretzel twists
  • M&Ms
  • sprinkles

Directions:

Line jellyroll pan with wax paper.  In microwave safe bowl, melt white candy bark according to package directions.  Spread over wax paper in thin layer.  Lightly place pretzels on white bark as desired.  Melt 1/4 to 1/3 package of chocolate candy bark according to package directions.  Carefully spoon into openings of pretzels, covering pretzel so that it resembles a chocolate heart in the center.  Place M&M or desired candy in middle of pretzel hearts.  Decorate white bark with sprinkles.  Leave at room temperature or put in cool place to harden.  Break into pieces and store in airtight container.

Graze Review # 3

Graze box number three–yum yum for my tum tum!  This box was a special order Valentine’s Day box with four chocolatey treats.  I’m a serious chocoholic, so you had better believe that I was looking forward to this little box.  Is it bad that my kids don’t even know I got this?  Do any other moms keep “mommy treats” that are hidden from their kids?

The yummy varieties included:

  • Honeycomb Crunch — milk chocolate honeycomb, almonds & raisins.  Oh my, yes!  The almonds and raisins were yummy, but the chocolate honeycomb was delish!!  Man, I wanted some more of that stuff about two seconds after finishing it.
  • Campfire S’mores — milk chocolate & salted almond buttons, cookie drops & vanilla marshmallows.  Thumbs up!  I think I liked the cookie drops the most, as weird as that is.  I didn’t care for how all of the ingredients tasted together, but they were great when eaten separately.
  • Dark Rocky Road — Belgian dark chocolate buttons, cranberries & pecans.  I didn’t think I would like this one as much, but it turned out to be my overall favorite.  The flavors complement each other really well.
  • Cookies & Cream — mini chocolate cookies, white chocolate buttons, hazelnuts & sunflower seeds.  I haven’t tried this one yet.  Maybe it will be tonight’s snack.

Cost: $6.99/box (4-snack box; other options available)

Shipping: Included

Final Thoughts: Still lovin’ this box.  Super yumariffic!
