Patriotic Pretzel Peanut Bark!

Hey everyone, try to say that title three times fast!!! How about a salty sweet munchie for your
4th of July Party! I saw this Candy Bark on Paula Deen's site and thought it would be a great summer treat. To make it festive I simply sprinkled red, white and blue nonpareils on the top.


Cooling on the tray:

Chow time!

Pretzel Peanut Bark
1 Bag white chocolate chips (Paula used the white chocolate squares, you can click the link above)
1 1/4 C skinny pretzels (sticks broken in half, not crushed)
1/2 C roasted peanuts (I used salted)
Colorful candy decorations for the top
  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment, wax paper or a silicone liner.
  2. Melt chocolate in double boiler or the microwave till smooth.
  3. Gently mix in pretzels and peanuts. 
  4. Pour out onto cookie sheet, spread mixture out and sprinkle with candy topping.
  5. Let cool for a few hours or put in fridge for 45 minutes, break into pieces and store in an air tight container.
  • I adjusted my recipe down because a bag of chips is only 11 oz. 
  • If you want to use chocolate instead of white chocolate, well, I won't tell Miss Paula! Just be careful to temper it.
  • This would be best if you're eating inside (at least have this inside). It was over 90 degrees today and the chocolate did get a little soft after a while.
Have a happy day:@)
