One week down and I’m feeling really good about this working from home thing. I’m sure that some of the beginner’s high will die down after a while, but I’m glad to be off to such a productive start! Sure, I might have left out half of the baking soda in a cookie recipe and taken a batch of brownies out of the pan when they were still warm and too fragile to move, but it can’t all be perfect. The upside (or downside?) of baking mistakes is that I get to eat those batches. Hmm, maybe I need to be a bit more careful or I’m going to have to start doing INSANITY multiple times a day!
Speaking of baking mistakes, it seems that any time I make anything that requires melted chocolate for dipping I melt double or triple the chocolate I need. A couple of weeks ago I found myself with a big bowl of melted chocolate and didn’t want it to go to waste. I quickly flipped through my drawers and found a few bags of candy that were due to be used up. Lots of chocolate and lots of peanut butter but not too much for some candy fun! You can find the recipe for this highly addictive Chocolate & Peanut Butter Lover’s Bark on Fox!
Oh, and an exciting heads up! The new website should be up by Monday so keep an eye out for the blog move. I’ll be keeping everyone updated via Twitter and Facebook, but any RSS or e-mail subscribers are going to have to re-subscribe once the move is complete.
this looks so fun. love the bright colors!
I love creating things on the fly out of ingredients I already have in stock. This looks so good. Looking forward to officially seeing the new page! (Since I mistakenly was able to see it sooner haha)
I always forget about making bark…but it’s gotta be one of the easiest, quickest, and yummiest things to make! :)
I think this is the best thing I could’ve seen on Friday morning…from my office desk!! HEAVEN
Oh man this looks sooo good! All those candies in chocolate! Seriously, what could be better?! Great job!
Nom Nom Nom!
I just wanna jump into that picture and eat up all that bark! P.S. I will gladly accept any and all candy that you need to dispose of…
Oh I have so much chocolate wafers I need to use. This is a great idea to get rid of it. Love the colors in here too!
Best kind of spring cleaning! I also end up with too much melted chocolate when I make such treats – this is the perfect way to use it up for sure!
This is RIGHT up my alley…I mean you can’t go wrong!
Good luck with your blog move…NOT fun. I just made some changes the past few weeks and it’s always a nail-biting experience!
Oh yum! The possibilities with bark truly are endless. I love this idea :)
You and your peanut butter creations never fail to make me smile :-) Yum – what a treat for a Friday afternoon!
This is candy heaven and I love a good bark.
Mmm that looks tasty!
I AM DROOLING!!!
Ha, I love how you had extra bags of candy in your drawer. In my house, extra bags of candy end up in our stomachs :)
Haha it is only because I stock up on candy like crazy when it goes on sale!
This gets a definite thumbs up from me! Can’t wait to see the new site :)
I can’t wait to clean my pantry! Look forward to your site’s new dress. :)
Chocolate and peanut butter is my faaaaaavourite combo!
Yum!! This looks awesome!
seriously? i dieeeeeee
yum looks like a good mistake to me :) love chocolate, peanut butter but not Spring cleaning.
I always melt extra chocolate also because the last thing I need in life is to find myself with not enough to dip all my cake balls into! But next time I do I’m going to be barking it up. Which means I should stock up on Reese’s…especially when the easter egg ones are around.
Oh, I will be doing that as soon as the post-Easter sales start:-)
hahah there’s no way I’d be able to find a leftover bag of reeses in my house :) I can never keep my hands out of the bag! Perfect way to use up your candy and chocolate, that looks so good!! Chocolate and peanut butter is the BEST combo!
I’m LOVING the new site!!! And wow, this looks incredible!
I love the new site! And, I love this bark! There’s definitely been more times than I can count that I’ve melted more chocolate than a recipe requires. Problem solved now :)
That’s some good looking candy!!
the new site looks really fantastic! I love the bark too…can never have enough pb in my life!
Congrats on your new site!! Looks great :) As does this bark!
Chocolate candy bark is undoubtedly the best thing since sliced bread! I love that bark is something I can now say I’m a pro at making. It puts my baking skills to shame and people assume you spent a lot of time on it. I just spend a lot of time eating it…
