    Such a fun recipe for kids to help with. The choices for candies are endless and you can use your families favorites. This is something even our youngest grandchild was able to help with and feel so accomplished! I used the fall M&M's and the Oreoes with orange filling!

    This was really a tasty and pretty treat. I think I will double the peanuts and leave out the Oreos next time.

    I prepared this recipe for the first time and I used 14-oz. package of Make & Mold White Mint Candy Wafer Disks, 2 Tsp. butter for greasing the foil, 2 cups Utz's sour dough pretzels, broken into small pieces, about 1 cup miniature Oreo sandwich cookies, broken into small pieces, 3/4 cup INDIAN corn as I didn't have candy corn on hand, 3/4 cup dry roasted peanuts, 1/2 cup miniature M & M baking bits in place of the regular milk chocolate M & M candy. I melted the discs in a double boiler over boiling water until smooth, then I used a 14x10" baking pan to line with the foil. I put the balance of the butter IN with the meltedcandy wafer disks after greasing the foil. What I did was prepare the bark and then I refrigerated the candy to have it firm up. (FOR ME, I'd found that chilling the candy makes it firm and easier for me to handle.) I think the candy looked very colorful! I plan to take it to one of the depts. where I volunteer at the local hospital! Peggie Brott, thank you for sharing this recipe! delowenstein p.s. I omitted the Reese's pieces! But who knows? I plan to use this recipe again & will plan to purchase candy corn & Reese's pieces and perhaps a package of the Harvest mix (candy pmpkins, candy corn, Indian corn combination)! I sampled the bark and I found it to be tasty! I admit that the toppings did fall off and I think that I also WILL scale back on the toppings so that they don't come off! "Momoflandl"'s suggestion WAS a very good one-trimming down the quantities of the toppings so that they stay on the candy and don't fall off! DELowenstein

    This was easy and a hit with the kids. I think all the toppings were good but just a lot of overall stuff on there. Next time I will trim the quantities down a bit so that the extras don't fall off.
