When Kara and I made this bark a few weeks ago I left her house without trying it. I regret that. A lot. Reese’s Pieces are my all time favorite candy. I always buy Reese’s Pieces at the movie theater. And when I’m bored at work and have a chocolate craving I run down to CVS for Reese’s Pieces. That happens almost every single day. Sometimes I buy Reese’s Pieces at really random places too…like Bed Bath & Beyond. I’m embarrassed to admit that. Oh well. And Reese’s Peanut Butter cups are pretty amazing too, in my top 5 for sure. Kara said the bark tasted awesome and I believe her!
We made cake batter bark a few months ago and loved it. This is basically the same recipe as last time but with a Halloween twist. Instead of the cake batter we used candy, and we added black and orange sprinkles for some added flair. I love this recipe because it can easily be changed up. Crushed candy canes for Christmas perhaps? Kara suggested adding brownie mix (like we did cake batter) to make Brownie Bark. Maybe we will try that next!
Now…when we made the Halloween Bark we started with a layer of Reese’s Pieces and Minis on the bottom, then a layer of milk chocolate, then a layer of white chocolate. We were kind of disappointed that the candies didn’t show through the bottom. We added the sprinkles on top for color. So even though our pictures show the original method, I changed the recipe below by starting with the white chocolate, then the milk chocolate, then the Reese’s Pieces and Minis on top. This should ensure that the candies show through nicely. Either way the bark is cute, fun and tasty! Try it however you like!
12 ounces milk chocolate
6 ounces white chocolate
Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Start by melting the white chocolate. Microwave the chocolate in 30 second intervals until melted, stir until smooth. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour chocolate on it. Use an offset spatula to spread it out to your desired thickness. Place it in the freezer for 20 minutes. Next, melt the milk chocolate. Take the white chocolate layer out of the freezer and pour the milk chocolate. Spread the milk chocolate evenly using an offset spatula. Sprinkle with Reese’s pieces and Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter cups. Freeze for an additional 20 minutes. Break into pieces and keep refrigerated.
