Day 8 of 12 Days of Christmas Goodies
Christmas Candy BarkChristmas Candy Bark
originally found at Gingerbread Bagels, but adapted to my personal preferences
1 lb of melting chocolate (white, milk or dark chocolate - I use only melting chocolate and not regular chocolate chips from the store, as they harden up and dry way differently)
1/2 lb red candy melts
1/2 lb green candy melts
1/2 cup Christmas Oreos, crushed (but not too finely)
1/4 cup Christmas M&Ms (you can use any flavor of M&M's)
1/4 cup Holiday Corn (I searched EVERYWHERE, so I settled on just M&M's)
1/4 cup Candy Cane Hershey Kisses, cut in half
First step is to cut the Candy Cane Hershey Kisses in half and crush the Christmas Oreos. Set the candy aside. Lay out a piece of parchment paper. You’ll use this to make the Christmas Candy Bark on.
Put melting chocolates (white, milk or dark chocolate) in a microwavable bowl. Melt the chocolate but be careful not to overheat the chocolate. (mine takes 40-55 seconds in the microwave) Spread the melted chocolate onto the parchment paper, spread thin, but not too thin. Should take up almost entire cookie sheet.
Then melt the red and green candy melts in separate microwavable bowls. Place dots of the melted candy melts on top of the melted chocolate. (do every other color in straight rows; ie: red then green, red and green) Using a knife, swirl the candy melts and chocolate up and down.
Place the candy and cookies on the melted chocolate. Press down lightly. Allow the Christmas Candy Bark to dry for at least 3 hours (or overnight). Cut into pieces and enjoy (or give away like I do)!
