Peanut Butter Bark

First of all, Happy Christmas Eve! Andy and I are in Goshen, Indiana (right outside Chicago) spending a few days with family before we move on. I'm glad we are getting to see some family on this cross-country trip, especially since we are traveling right over Christmas.

This is the third and final recipe for chocolate bark. The other two can be found here and here. If you have chocolate and peanut butter on hand this could be a fun thing to make with your family today. Or...maybe you are busy with other things. Either way, this could also be a good Easter bark!

Peanut Butter Bark
16 oz. (or 2 cups) of white chocolate (chips or candy melts)
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
8 oz. (or 1 cup) dark or milk chocolate (chips or candy melts)

Start by laying some wax paper over a cookie sheet. Next, melt the peanut butter and white chocolate either in a double boiler or in the microwave. Separately melt the dark chocolate in the microwave. Pour the melted white chocolate and peanut butter mixture into the cookie sheet and spread it out with a spatula. Take the melted dark chocolate and drizzle it in lines over the peanut butter mixture. Then, take a knife and drag it through the chocolate the opposite way of the chocolate lines to marbleize it.

That is it. It is an elegant and easy way to make bark. You can also use the marbleizing affect with icing to decorate cakes or cookies. It is much simpler to do than it looks.

Enjoy...and Merry Christmas tomorrow!
