Dark Chocolate Candy Bark

Yield: about 36 pieces
Prep 15 mins Microwave 1 min Chill 30 mins
Dark Chocolate Candy Bark
Ingredients
  • 6  ounces  chocolate-flavor candy coating, chopped (1 cup)
  • 6  ounces  dark chocolate, chopped (1 cup)
  • 3  ounces  milk chocolate, chopped
  • 1  tablespoon  shortening
  • 2  cups  chopped assorted chocolate candy bars, such as chocolate-coated caramel-topped nougat bars with peanuts, chocolate-covered English toffee, chocolate-covered peanut butter cups, or malted milk balls
  • 1/2  cup  salted peanuts, chopped
Directions

1. Line a large baking sheet with heavy foil; grease foil. Set aside. In a large microwave-safe bowl combine candy coating, chocolate, and shortening. Microwave, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until chocolate melts, stirring every 30 seconds.

2. Stir 1 cup of the assorted chopped candy bars and the peanuts into melted chocolate mixture. Pour mixture onto prepared baking sheet. Spread mixture into an even layer about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup chopped candy bars; lightly press pieces into chocolate.

3. Chill about 30 minutes or until firm. Use foil to lift candy out of pan. Using a sharp knife, cut candy into pieces.
