The Valentine’s candy situation is a tad out of control around here so I am making candy bark today to get rid of it. Making candy bark is a popular and easy way to use up leftover candy. It is like consolidating all the pieces of junk into one giant junk bar. I plan to send this bark to my husband’s office and distribute to friends so it’s out of my house, since I usually take about three bites and am over and done with it. Here is how you can make this fun bark for your family — then say goodbye to this candy holiday!
Valentine Candy Bark
16 oz. (1 lb) Semisweet chocolate chips
2 c. chopped Valentine’s and/or peanuts
1. Line a small rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside. Make sure it is the right size for your freezer.
2. In a heatproof bowl over simmer water melt the chocolate chips until completely liquid. Pour onto the aluminum foil lined pan and spread with a spatula until 1/8³ thick.
3. Scatter on the chopped candies and nuts. Place pan in the freezer until chocolate is completely solid. Break into bite-size pieces and serve.
