No, I did not attack our halloween candy stash in a late night binge. In fact, we don't get any trick-or-treaters so I don't even buy any candy for them.
These candy wrappers are a part of something far greater than 'just halloween candy'.
This was for a recipe I saw in the October issue of bon appetit.
You know how food magazines and television cooking shows offer you loads of ideas for what to do with your Thanksgiving Day leftovers? I feel like whoever concocted this recipe said to themselves, "What are we going to do with all of this leftover Halloween candy? (lightbulb goes off) I know! We'll crush it all up and throw it on even more melted chocolate and call it bark!"
One heck of an idea.
One pound of bittersweet chocolate morsels melted, 3 Heath bars, 3 Butterfingers, 8 Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, 1/4 C of honey roasted peanuts, 3 ounces of white chocolate to make it look pretty and as if that's not enough, topped with Reeses Pieces AND/or peanut M & M's for festive color.
Unwrap. Destruct. Melt. Assemble. Melt. Assemble more. Chill. Destruct. Serve. But please, don't eat it all yourself.
