December 18 ~ Sweet & Salty Bark

Scraping the bowl was an important way to help!
As mentioned previously, my daughter Carrie and I spent a Friday afternoon in early December crafting together.  Mr. T ended up with some time off and made this fun treat with the grandkids: Sweet and Salty Bark.  This served the dual purpose of keeping the kids busy and happy while their mom and I worked, and producing a yummy candy to share with others.  They made a double batch so they could take some home.  Follow the Pinterest link above to get to the recipe if you are interested.  It involves a layer of melted peanut butter chips, then a layer of melted chocolate chips, which are then sprinkled with broken pretzels, chopped peanut butter cups, and caramel corn, then drizzled with melted white chocolate.  Sounds decadent?  It is!

 And here are a few pictures of the project:
There was a job for everyone.

Hope your family enjoys this recipe if you try it!


  1. Oh, it sounds delicious! I don't dare make it unless I'm giving it all away. Maybe it would be good to take with us when we visit our children! :) It was nice to see some of your grandchildren and your husband!

  2. It is really tasty! The kids took a tin home with them, and apparently their parents ate most of the bark. Carrie told me Josiah (5) opened the tin one day and was quite surprised to find only a few pieces left!

    She also said that her hubby didn't like the caramel corn all that much, so she would leave it off if she made it at home. I thought it was good with the caramel corn, but would be fine without it too.
