Sweet and salty, crispy/crunchy, your favorite trail mix, and 2x the chocolate, all layered together in one easy-to-make candy bark!
Ingredients
  • 1 pound Chocolate (I used 1 pound from a Trader Joes Pound Plus Dark Chocolate Bar), chopped into pieces
  • 1 cup Pretzel twists (Gluten Free, if needed)
  • 1 ½ cups Trail Mix
  • 4 ounces White Chocolate, for melting (or White Almond Bark) (do not use white chocolate chips), chopped
Instructions
  1. Prepare by lining a large baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Measure out pretzels and Trail Mix and set them aside so that they are ready to use.
  2. Place chocolate pieces into a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power for 3-4 minutes, pausing the microwave to stir chocolate every 30 seconds. (The pausing and stirring will ensure that chocolate is melted evenly and does not get overcooked or scorched.)
  3. Once the chocolate is completely smooth and melted, pour the hot chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet and spread evenly into a large rectangle with a knife.
  4. Working quickly while the chocolate is still hot, stick the pretzels and sprinkle Trail Mix pieces onto the top of the chocolate (make sure everything is touching the chocolate).
  5. Place White Chocolate or Almond Bark in a small microwave safe bowl, and microwave for about 2 minutes or until completely smooth and melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Drizzle over bark using a spoon or squeeze bottle.
  6. Allow to completely harden, at least 60 minutes in the refrigerator.
  7. Cut (with a large, flat-edge, heavy-duty knife) bark into pieces.
  8. For best results, store tightly covered in the refrigerator.
  9. Makes about 30-36 pieces.
