Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Bark Recipe

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bark
Hey, you got your chocolate in my peanut butter! Remember those corny TV commercials set in a world where it was a normal occurrence when a person carrying a giant chocolate bar would run into someone eating from a jar of peanut butter? I’m pretty devoted to peanut butter, but I’ve never walked down the street or sat in a movie theater with a full jar of it. I do, however, love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. This peanut butter cup chocolate bark recipe is proof of that.
Peanut Butter Cup Bark
The bark is made from a mixture of melted semisweet chocolate and creamy peanut butter. Best of all, it’s filled with peanut butter cup candies! A topping of salty cocktail peanuts adds a nutty crunch.

Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Bark Recipe
4 full-size dark chocolate peanut butter cups (I used Justin’s)
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon virgin coconut oil
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup salted cocktail peanuts, chopped

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or waxed paper. Unwrap peanut butter cups and cut in quarters. Arrange cut-up peanut butter cups close together in a single layer on the parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Place chocolate chips in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium (50% power) about 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes until the chocolate is nearly melted and can be stirred smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. (Be careful not to scorch chocolate.) Stir coconut oil into melted chocolate. Add peanut butter into melted chocolate mixture; stir until well mixed. Pour melted chocolate mixture evenly over peanut butter cups; spread gently to evenly distribute chocolate. Immediately sprinkle with peanuts; gently press into chocolate.

Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until chocolate is set. Cut chocolate bark into pieces.

Makes about 24 pieces

Tip: I used two (1.4 ounce) packages of Justin’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups. For even more peanut butter cup awesomeness, I just might add another package of peanut butter cups the next time I make the recipe. (That may have been the original plan before one of the packages went missing!)

Holiday Cookie and Treat Recipes

I’m not much for holiday tradition. I don’t sacrifice a tree. Christmas music is as enjoyable to me as nails scraping across a chalkboard. And, any ugly sweater I wear can be attributed to my poor fashion sense rather than a holiday joke. Can I get a bah humbug? Well, my heart is not totally black. I do feel some holiday warmth when it comes to baking. I love mixing up new twists on classics, like gluten free or vegan versions of favorite recipes like peanut butter cookies and chocolate brownies. Here’s to finding sweetness in the season.

Caramel Peanut Chocolate Bark Recipe (Rolo Bark!)

Caramel Chocolate Bark Candy filled candy? Look close and you’ll see someone put caramel in that chocolate bark. It was me, and I’m not sorry. This recipe is a sugar bomb for sure, but ‘tis the season.

Rolo Chocolate Bark

With only 3 ingredients, it’s super simple to make. Start by cutting some Rolo Caramels in half and spreading them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Next, pour melted chocolate chips over the Rolo candies, spreading to make a beautifully irregular pool of caramel-chocolatey goodness. Finish the bark with a sprinkling of salty cocktail peanuts. That’s it. You’ve made a decadent caramel-filled chocolate bark. The toughest part is waiting for the bark to set up. Pop it in the fridge so that it sets up fast, then break the bark into pieces. (Watch out for flying peanuts. It happens.) Eat it. Gift it. Don’t worry about resolutions until the new year.

24 chocolate-covered caramel candies (Rolo Caramels)
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup salted cocktail peanuts, chopped

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or waxed paper. Unwrap caramel candies and cut in half. Arrange caramel candy halves close together in a single layer on the parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Place chocolate chips in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium (50% power) about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes until the chocolate is nearly melted and can be stirred smooth, stirring every 30 seconds. (Be careful not to scorch chocolate.) Pour melted chocolate evenly over caramel candies; spread gently to evenly distribute chocolate over caramel candies. Immediately sprinkle with peanuts; gently press into chocolate.

Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until chocolate is set. Break chocolate bark into pieces.

Makes about 24 pieces

Tip: Gently but firmly wrapping the baking sheet on the counter after assembling the bark will result in fewer air bubbles in the chocolate.
