Here it is a week out from Halloween. Are your kids buckets and bags still full of candies?

Before it gets old and stale, why not recycle that candy?

Recycle it into this sweet treat that is.

Ingredients
  • 1 pound semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 (2.1-ounce) Butterfinger bars, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3 (1.4-ounce) Heath bars, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 8 (0.55-ounce) peanut butter cups, each cut into 8 wedges
  • 1/2 cup mini pretzels
  • Reese’s pieces, and/or yellow and orange M&M’s
  • 3 ounces white chocolate
Instructions
  • Line a baking sheet with foil. Spray with cooking spray.
  • Melt the bittersweet chocolate in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. OR melt chocolate in microwave.
  • Pour over the foil-lined baking sheet. Spread to an even layer that is about 12×10 inches.
  • Sprinkle the candy and pretzels over the chocolate, pressing lightly to adhere. Be sure all the candy is in contact with the chocolate.
  • Melt the white chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly. OR melt chocolate in microwave.
  • Use a spoon or a fork to drizzle the white chocolate over the candy.
  • Chill at least 30 minutes, or until firm. Break into 1-2 inch chunks.
Notes
  • The bark can be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week…if it even lasts that long.
  • Also, you can use whatever your favorite candies are.
