Holloween Candy Bark

This recipe is PERFECT for the leftover extra candy you don't want the kids to gouge on after Halloween. Every year Meme and Papaw take the kids trunk or treating. They come home with the mother load of candy. Instead of letting the gouge themselves sick or fight over who gets what we often make candy bark. You can use any kind of candy you like. Here's what we made this week:

Makes one 13X9 sheet

16oz Simi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
3 regular size Butterfingers
3 regular size Heath
6 regular Reece's Cups
Handful of Reece's Pieces
3oz White Chocolate

1. Cut or break up the Butterfingers, Heath, and Reece's Cups. Rosey Posey had a lot of fun (Maybe too much) hammering the candy in a zip-lock bag.

2. Melt the chocolate chips. This is best done with a double boiler, or as I did: A metal bowl on top of a pot of boiling water. 

3. Pour the melted chocolate onto a cookie sheet lined with a silicon mat or wax paper.

4. Spread the chocolate out till the whole pan is covered.

5. Sprinkle the candy on top of the chocolate. Press the candy down a little so that all pieces make contact with the melted chocolate.

6. Melt the white chocolate and use a spoon to drizzle it onto the bark.

7. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, then break into servings.
 Put in an air tight container and store in the fridge for up to one month (if it will last that long).

This is SO amazing and addicting. Meme calls it the 'good evil stuff'. This is so yummy the kids are always more than happy to 'donate' a couple handfuls of their fun size candy to the 'yummy cause'. Every year our bark is a little bit different depending on what they want to donate. My DH suggested adding some pretzels this year. I may have to make another batch just to try. Shucks! :P
