Chocolate Bark

Thanks to Jaden at the Steamy Kitchen for the
C at Mele Cotte for another variation of this recipe.
I am trying out this recipe this weekend.
If it turns out good I will be sharing it with my colleagues.
It is going to be a busy week and I thought I would try to
make something for the wonderful people I work with.

You really can't go wrong with chocolate!

Chocolate Bark
1/2 box of graham crackers
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 lb. butter ( 2 sticks)
3 cups dark chocolate chips
1 cup roughly chopped macadamia nuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Line baking sheet with foil.
2. Arrange a single layer of graham crackers in pan without
3. In small sauce pan, melt butter and add the sugars.

4. Whisk to disolve . Let boil for a minute then simmer 5 minutes.

5. Pour mixture over graham crackers, using spatula to even out.

6. Bake 10 minutes
7. Remove from oven and spread chocolate chips over .
8. Leave for 5 minutes then spread the melted chocolate evenly.

9. Top with chopped nuts.
10. Let cool. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
11. Break into pieces.

YUM! You have got to give this recipe a try!

* There are many variations.

For the chocolate chips you can use any type you like

or even your favorite candy bar broken into small pieces.

Also, you can decide what type of topping you want.

I made a pan with almonds on top and a pan with cashews on top.

These types of bark are utterly addictive. I wouldn't trust myself with your cashew one!

Looks like a tasty snack to me! And any excuse to eat more nuts is a good thing in my book. ;-)
