Reviews for Crunchy Peanut Bark
"I am the submitter of this recipe and here's a little tidbit about it. I've been making it for years and I am also a die hard fan of The Oak Ridge Boys........I've been making this candy and taking to them for probably the last 15 years THEY ALL LOVE IT AND ALL THEIR WIVES HAVE THE RECIPE TOO!!! I make a big pan for the Oak's bus and a pan for the band's bus usually around Christmas time and also throughout the year as I go to shows. I will be seeing them next month and plan to make up two batches of it for them : ) And, I am noticing there is a misprint, you need to heat it at 50% power in the microwave, the almond bark does burn if you heat it too long or too hot."
"New Christmas treat! Love these......did mine on the stove since I don't have a microwave (takes up too much counter space when I hardly ever use it.). These came out beautifully!!"
"I make these for Christmas every year. They are so good!"
"These are fantastic! I made these for the first time last year and everyone loved them including myself. I will definately be making them again this Christmas."
"this recipe was and is a HUGE hit with everyone that tries it. I found the recipe a couple of years ago and get many requests for it no matter what time of year."
