This recipe from my daughter caught my eye because it reminded me of a favorite candy bar of mine as a child. I love the fudge-like texture.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 15, 2011

"This bark tasted really good. I think that I will try it without peanut butter next time. When cooking this you should make sure to lower the heat to medium/medium high, after it starts to boil. It will cook too fast if you don't."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 23, 2010

"This recipe was awful! I followed the directions exactly, but 5 minutes was way too long to cook the mixture. It started to harden before I could melt the chocolate. When I tried to swirl the two together it looked like something my cat threw up!"
