I had never had bark until last Christmas when my friend Amy gave my peppermint bark and I fell in love. This year, I will be making my own for holiday gifts, but I decided that it might also be quite tasty to make a chocolate and peanut butter bark with Reese's Pieces.
Bark is quite easy to make. All you need to do is melt whatever types of chocolate, or in this case, chocolate and peanut butter, that you want in different bowls. Simply place about 2 cups of semi sweet chocolate into a bowl and place it into the microwave for 1 minute at a time, stirring between minutes until its just melted. I used semi sweet chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips. Once your chips are melted you want to place a peice of wax paper onto a sheet pan and then drizzle your chocolate and peanut butter until its nicely coated. Then top with Reese's Pieces and place in the refrigerator until solid. After its set, than you can remove it and break the bark into pieces.
My husband came home and said that he had seen a recipe that I needed to make for him. I am now his wife, so I figured that it would be my wifely duty to make sure that his foodie needs were met :) I looked over the recipe and realized that it could be my weight loss downfall. I have one sure weakness to my dieting....peanut butter cups, and the recipe that he needed to have was for Inside Out Peanut Butter Cups.
The recipe is very easy, and doesn't take any crazy ingredients...most of the items that it calls for are already in the pantry, so I tried my hand and made him these tasty treats. They didn't look anything like the lovely picture on the recipe, but I think they tasted pretty amazing. I am now going to have to burn the recipe so that I can't make these tasty homemade goodies every day of the week. Check out the recipe below if you are like my husband and I and can't resist a peanut butter/chocolate combo!
