Chocolate Peanut Butter Toffee Bark

Candy is good.  Especially when it is this easy to make.

I was inspired by this Trader Joe's Copycat Cowboy Bark.  I just don't like nuts.  I love peanut butter, but not nuts.  I know.  Weird.

So I did a little switching up.

What I came up with was both sweet and salty, and incredibly easy to make.  It'd be a great dessert to bring to a party because it travels easily and takes so little time to make!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Toffee Bark
(Inspired by Averie Cooks)

4 large Hershey's chocolate bars (about 1 pound)
8 Oreos, chopped
1 1/2 cups of mini pretzels, broken up
1/3 cup of Heath bar toffee bits
2/3 cup peanut butter chips
Coarse sea salt

Line large cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper.  Make sure to have all the toppings prepped so that you can add them while the chocolate is still melted.

In a large microwave safe bowl, break up the chocolate bars and begin melting in 30 second intervals, stirring after each 30 seconds.  Continue to do this until chocolate is melted and smooth.

Spread chocolate on wax paper with an offset spatula or a large flat spatula.  Chocolate should be about a /14 inch thick.

Sprinkle toppings evenly over chocolate.  Use another spatula to press toppings into chocolate a bit.  Sprinkle coarse sea salt over the top.

Place cookie sheet in refrigerator for at least an hour, or in the freezer for 30 minutes.  (I actually had it in the fridge for about 2 hours, so it's definitely something that can be made way in advance!).

When hardened, break into pieces and enjoy!
