Chocolate barks are my absolute favorite go-to for large batch treats you can store for weeks and hand out as needed to neighbors, coworkers, friends and family during the holidays. Since it doesn’t require any baking (just a microwave for melting!) it’s the perfect recipe. Using peanut m&ms (which just happen to look like light bulbs in shape) and halved Mike & Ike’s candies, you can string up a set of candy lights on chocolate that will light up your treat giving ways.
Prep Time: 20-30 minutes
4 cups White Chocolate Wafers
1 cup Green Colored White Chocolate Wafers
1 cup Peanut M&Ms
1/2 cup Mike & Ike's, dark green
Microwave Safe Bowl
Parchment Lined Cookie Sheet
Start by melting your white chocolate in the microwave on HIGH in 30 second intervals, stirring between each until completely melted.
Pour the white melted chocolate onto your parchment lined cookie sheet and spread out evenly with a spatula.
Let sit until set, or cool in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.
While it cools, melt your green colored white chocolate and put in a piping bag, snipping the tip small for a string like design.
Chop your green Mike & Ikes in half.
Once your white chocolate is set, pipe your string design across the top of the bark surface.
Combining an M&M with a halved Mike & Ike, using more green chocolate to "glue" onto your string in a pattern of lights across the bark.
Chill and set for another 5 minutes, then chop up and serve!
