Hello fellow frugal friends,
I’ve got a treat for you… Simple, tasty, and a crowd pleasing bark! Basically, all you need is chips, pretzels, and an oven! This has been a hit for many years, and I never tell anyone the recipe… because if I did what would they need me for? But, for you guys, all of you who I may or may not know, here is what I have for you= )
(Sorry about the bad picture…)
This is the main thing you need! Winter blend Toll House chocolate chips! It’s a mixture of dark chocolate and mint chips.
What you need to do to get those to turn to this:
-Turn your oven to 325 degrees. It must be completely ready to go when you put these in.
-Put chips evenly dispersed on a foil lined cookie sheet. Bake for 2-4 minutes until chips get shiny. The closer your cookie sheet is to the top of the oven, the quicker it will be ready. I usually open the oven at 2.5 minutes and use a knife to see if it spreads like a butter.
-Once it is ready to spread, take it out, spread it until it is creamy and smooth.
-Add pretzels (or nuts) to your hears content. I prefer lots of pretzels for the salty effect. Then I take a fork and push them in so they stick once they are cold.
-Cool for about an hour in the fridge. Once chilled, break into pieces & enjoy!
This might be the easiest dessert to make and people LOVE it. They rave about this simple delicious item, and think I worked very hard on it. I have let them believe for three years… But now, I share with you the joys of easy treat making!
