Halloween Chocolate Bark

A La Kocinera Original Recipe

1/3 cup roughly chopped mini Twix bars (about 3)

1/3 cup roughly chopped mini Butterfinger bars (about 3)

1/3 cup roughly chopped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (about 4)

1/3 cup chopped pretzels

1/4 cup M&Ms

12 ounces dark chocolate, chopped (it’s best to use bar chocolate, like Ghirardelli)

4 ounces white chocolate, chopped

After chopping all the candies and setting them aside, line a baking sheet with nonstick parchment paper (or wax paper, nonstick aluminum foil, etc.), set aside.

Place the chopped dark chocolate in a medium-sized microwaveable bowl. Microwave at 50% power 25 seconds at a time, stirring between each interval, until the chocolate is almost entirely melted (if there are still a few unmelted pieces just stir it a bit until they melt).

Once the dark chocolate is melted, immediately pour it onto the prepared baking sheet, spreading it into a thin, even layer with a spatula. While the chocolate is still melted and liquid-y, sprinkle the candies and pretzels all over the surface, gently pressing them into the chocolate to set.

Finally, place the chopped white chocolate in a small, microwaveable bowl and heat at 50% power in 25-second intervals until melted, stirring between each interval. Once the white chocolate is melted, take small spoonfuls of chocolate and drizzle them on top of the chocolate bark to taste. You may not use all the white chocolate--just dip any sort of candy, pretzel, etc. in the leftovers for another yummy treat.

Once the chocolate bark is complete, place it in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to set. After an hour, break it up and serve immediately or repackage it and keep it in the refrigerator for a few days.
