What better way to use up half-eaten bags of candy than by making a fun and easy batch of chocolate bark?  The toppings can be easily customized to taste, but this chocolate and peanut butter combination is one of my favorites!


  • 6 ounce semi-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup M&Ms
  • 1/2 cup Reese's Pieces
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter cups, roughly chopped (~8 small)


Step 1:

  • Line a jelly roll pan or cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Step 2:

  • Melt semi-sweet chocolate: Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30-second increments, stirring in between, until melted. Use a spatula to spread melted chocolate onto parchment paper in the shape of a rectangle so that chocolate is 1/8 - 1/4 inch thick.

Step 3:

  • Immediately sprinkle M&Ms, Reese's Pieces and peanut butter cups over melted chocolate. Set aside to cool for 1- 2 hours or until firm.

Step 4:

  • Once bark is firm, cut into pieces and enjoy. Store in an airtight container in a cool place.
