Backwoods Bonfire Bark

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

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