Movie Night Bark {Recipe #95}

I love Redbook Magazine

I know it's not really geared toward people my age, but I love it.

In December's Redbook Magazine they had recipes for various barks. You know like peppermint bark or something. I decided to try one called Movie Night Bark. 

It is a really fun idea that you just make a chocolate based bark and then drop your typical movie night snacks into it and let it harden. Their recipe contained a lot of things that kyle likes so I thought, why not?

Bonus? This has got to be one of the easiest recipes I tried in 2012!

Movie Night Bark

Borrowed, Adapted and Enjoyed from Redbook Magazine, December 2012

Note you can very easily sub any type of chocolate for the milk chocolate and sub out the toppings as well based on your tastes!

12 oz milk chocolate chopped {chips work too}
1/2 cup mini pretzel pieces
1/2 cup chocolate covered raisins {we used chocolate covered cherries}
1/2 cup cracker jacks, poppycock or caramel corn
1/2 cup salted peanuts

1) Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick foil.
 2) Melt chocolate in microwave. Heat for 1 minute, stir and then heat for an additional 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Pour into lined baking sheet and smooth out as best as you can. Barks should have a thin layer of chocolate, so don't worry if it seems thinner than what you are expecting.
3) Sprinkle your chosen ingredients over the chocolate as evenly as possible.
4) Let the bark chill in the fridge for about an hour.
5) Remove from fridge and break into pieces. 

Share and Enjoy!

This bark can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 month! {if you can make it last that long!}

What are your favorite movie night snacks?
