|Chocolate Covered Sunflower Seeds|
What you see here is all the ingredients to make the fantastic Halloween treat known as BOO-Bark!
I am sure I am breaking about 10 food blogging rules right now, but oh well....I am a rebel like that. Actually, I am frustrated beyond belief with my nemesis....white chocolate. I just have not been able to get it to melt correctly for me lately. Tonight, while trying to make some Boo-Bark for you, the stinkin' little sucker wouldn't play nice and melt right....again. AGHHH!!!!
It is NOT the recipe, it is me....me, me, me and my apparent lack of focus. SQUIRREL!
I hope you all understand that I am moving and just don't have the time or gumption to try it again. BUT, I do want you to have the recipe to enjoy. So, here is the recipe, sans final plated picture. (gasp! I know.) I do however, present to you the Easter version...Bunny Bark and hopefully the sweet little bunny model will melt your heart and you will eventually be able to forgive me.
- 14 Oreos
- 1 1/2 cups broken pretzel pieces
- 1 pound white chocolate, almond bark, or white candy disk melts found in the bulk section of some grocery stores. Just make sure you take it to dinner and perhaps feed some wine so it will cooperate and play nice.
- 1 cup candy corn.
- 1/2 cup Autumn-colored Chocolate Covered Sunflower Seeds. I used the Trader Joe's brand.
Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper. Spread broken cookies, pretzels, and about 3/4 cup of candy corn onto waxed paper. Place the white chocolate in a container and microwave for 1 minute - 1 1/2 minutes. Stir and then microwave for another 30 seconds until melted and smooth. White chocolate melts faster and burns easier than regular chocolate. It also does that funky seize up thing if you microwave for too long too. Unlike me, you MUST pay attention to wha... SQUIRREL!
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookie mixture, spreading with a spatula if needed to coat evenly. Sprinkle remaining candy corn and sunflower seeds over the chocolate while it is still wet. Place cookie tray into refrigerator until set and firm. Remove and gently break bark into small pieces. Store in air tight container.
