Thanksgiving Bark – Butterscotch and Peanut Butter

I’m in love with chocolate bark. It’s simple, easy to make, and ridiculously addicting. Sweet and savory? Chocolate? Pretzels? Butterscotch? Reese’s? Count me in!

Just like this Cowboy Bark I made for my sister in Texas, these have a chocolate bottom and pretzels – but the toppings are slightly different; it appeals to your peanut butter and butterscotch taste buds. Rumor has it, by the way, that a follower baked that delicious Cowboy Bark for an office baking competition and came home with the gold! Shout out to her for a job well done. Let me know if you end up baking the recipes– I would love to mention you in a post.

So for the bark this time around, I used Pretzel Thins instead of pretzels — but regular mini pretzels work just as well! I just had those at the time. The cool thing about chocolate bark is that you can break the pieces into just the right size — however big or small you want.

I made these for Thanksgiving and they were a huge hit — and no it is not just for Thanksgiving! And to be honest, my sister came home from Texas and ate half the bark before Thanksgiving.
