Not only do the flavors of chocolate, marshmallow and peanuts taste great together, the easy recipe reminds me of being up north at the cabin with my family. Makes a fast batch of treats to sell at your school bake sale. —Jamie McMahon, Cologne, Minnesota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 6, 2013

I made this bark yesterday for the first time!

I used these Make & Mold chocolate candy wafers instead of the semi-sweet chocolate. For me that worked well-I used a 14-oz. package. I did used the honey bear-shaped crackers (graham crackers), miniature marshmallows (I used 1 cup instead) and the dry roasted peanuts for this bark. I used a double boiler to melt the chocolate-I admit that I prefer to do that so that I can keep an eye on the chocolate mixture. I lined the baking sheet with waxed paper-(a baking sheet with a ledge)

and spread the melted chocolate out in prepared pan and added the bear grahamies,marshmmallows and peanuts!

Then I chilled the entire mixture! I sampled

the bark and it was very tasty! I'll definitely keep this recipe in mind for holidays or when I just feel like making some quick candy treats! I've also learned that when it's a hot day-keep candy chilled until ready to break apart and keep in the

container in refrigerator so that candy doesn't melt! Thank you for sharing this recipe! delowenstein
