Chocolate & Peanut Butter Candy

 Chocolate & Peanut Butter Candy

1 (1pound) package vanilla flavored Almond bark, broken into pieces
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 (6 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a medium bowl, add vanilla bark.  Microwave on high 2 minutes. 

Add peanut butter to melted vanilla bark. 

Mix Well.

Spread on wax paper or parchment paper lined baking sheet.  

In another medium bowl, add chocolate chips.  Microwave on high 1 1/2 minutes.  

Pour melted chocolate over peanut butter mixture.  

With a butter knife, make swirls to combine slightly.  

Cool. Cut or break into pieces.

This is one of our favorite candies.  If you like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, then you will love this recipe too.  It is also super quick to make.  From start to finish, it will only take you about five minutes.

This year when I went to buy my baking supplies, I noticed they had a different size vanilla flavored bark.  Instead of the one pound package, they now had a twenty four ounce package.  If you run into the same problem at your store, change the recipe to:

1 (24 ounce) package vanilla flavored almond bark, break into pieces
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

Follow the instructions as listed above.

  This recipe can be found in my cookbook called, MY KIND OF COOKING.
