Cherry Chocolate Bark Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:17 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup butter, softened, divided
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 12 large marshmallows
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • Dash salt
  • 1 cup vanilla or white chips
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cherry extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped dry roasted peanuts

Directions

  • 1. Line a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan with foil. Grease the foil with 1 tablespoon butter; set aside.
  • 2. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, marshmallows, milk, salt and remaining butter. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla chips and extracts until smooth. Pour into prepared pan.
  • 3. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Stir in peanut butter and peanuts. Drop by tablespoonfuls over first layer; cut through with a knife to swirl. Chill until firm.
  • 4. Using foil, lift candy out of pan. Discard foil. Break candy into pieces. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: about 2 pounds.

"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."

"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!"
