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.
