Candy Corn Bark
I pinned this recipe for Candy Corn Bark from Diana Rambles a while back. There are so many different variations you could do with, many of them are posted on her blog. It is super yummy! I would however recommend that you use a cookie sheet liner rather than spraying the pan with a nonstick cooking spray. I used the spray and the bark stuck. If this does happen to you though just take a second pan and put hot water in it then set then pan with the bark on top of the hot water. The heat will loosen it right up.
1 sleeve +/- saltine crackers
1 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
12 oz pkg semi sweet chocolate chips
dry roasted peanuts
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line sheet pan with cookie sheet liner or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Arrange crackers to cover the bottom of the pan in a single layer. My pan held one sleeve crackers perfectly (15 1/2" x 10" x 1"). You may need more or less crackers depending on the size of your pan. In small saucepan melt the butter, add brown sugar and boil for about three minutes stirring constantly. Pour over the saltines and put in the oven for five minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
Once the chocolate chips appear glossy, spread the melted chocolate chips evenly over the saltines.
Sprinkle with desired amount of candy corn and peanuts, press in place. Refrigerate for about one hour or until hard.
