I made a batch of Oreo truffles today for a co-worker and had some leftover chocolate. In my eyes it is a sin to let perfectly good chocolate go to waste, so I did a mental scan of all the stuff I had in my cupboards. I had some pretzel chips, craisens, and almonds, so I knew I could make something very yummy.
So this is what I did:
I poured some pretzel chips into the mixing bowl with the melted chocolate and stirred the mixture up until the pretzels were completely covered with chocolate.
I then poured the mixture out on some wax paper. I spread it out so it would dry in one piece, but it wasn't in a thick clump.
Then I sprinkled craisens on top.
I had toasted the slivered almonds on a cookie sheet in the oven until they were slightly browned. I then sprinkled the toasted almonds on top of the craisens.
Now get this.....I had some crumbled bacon in my fridge that was left over from dinner, so I sprinkled that on top of half of the bark. Oh weird....but yummy!
Then I melted some white chocolate in a baggie, cut off the tip and drizzled the white chocolate over all of the bark. BEAUTIFUL!
Put the bark in the fridge to harden, break it up and serve!
I also made some white chocolate bark with toasted almonds, craisens and broken pretzel chips on top.
