Recipe: Candy Bark

I tried my hand at homemade candy bark for Mother's Day and I was VERY impressed with the results. I basically made up the recipe and just winged it. 

The first batch I made was white chocolate with Andes mints and Oreos. 

All I did was melt the white chocolate chips and then I stirred in the Oreos and Andes mints. The Andes mints turned the white chocolate to a light chocolate color. If you want the white chocolate to be white, don't add chocolate of any kind. The mint gave it an amazing flavor, though. This combo was my favorite. 

I also did a milk chocolate with M&M's and pretzels. 

Once the milk chocolate chips were melted I mixed in the pretzels and then I put the M&M's on top.  

Once everything is melted and mixed just smooth it onto wax paper on top of baking sheets and pop them in the freezer. They harden really fast. Use a knife to break them up. 

The white chocolate seems to hold up a lot better than the milk. For example, once I took them out of the freezer, the white chocolate stayed perfectly but the milk chocolate got melty VERY fast. I recommend storing them in the freezer until you're ready to eat them. 

I've already got a list of new mixes to try next (I'm thinking dark chocolate with rolos and pretzels would be bomb). I love trying new creations in the kitchen and I'm very pleased with how these turned out!!
