Easy Peanut Butter Bark candy recipe in just 5 minutes!

I should have labeled this dessert week, but I’m in denial. I *may* have eaten the last no bake cookie last week, which left Chris thoroughly disappointed and me embarrassed. Desperate to appease Chris, I whipped up a dessert that I learned in my elementary school cooking class – peanut butter bark. This recipe is one you can have a lot of fun with, customizing it based on what you have in your home. It’s a great way to use the excess Halloween candy that enters your home! In fact, it’s a fun recipe to get kids involved.

The basics of peanut butter bark are melted peanut butter chips, chocolate and candy. I add pretzels for a touch of that sweet and salty flavor I always crave, plus I love a great crunch!
