Another sandwich in bark form! I remember when my ma would cut the crust off the bread for me. Instead of putting all that work in cutting the crust off myself, I decided to get rid of it altogether! And so PB&J bark was born.
I'm not big on sandwiches, but when I have one, it needs to be awesome. "Oh Great Becky of Aweosme-ness," you ask, "just how do you make a sandwich awesome?" Uh, duh. You add potato chips. Chips give any sandwich that salty crunch factor that just really brings everything together nicely. So here's the final product.
- 12oz white chocolate chips
- 3/4c potato chips, crushed
- 3/4c craisins
- 3/4c Reese's Pieces, crushed
- Lay wax paper out on baking sheet.
- Mix together craisins, Reese's Pieces and 1/4c potato chips in a bowl and set aside.
- Melt white choc. chips.
- Mix remaining 1/2c of crushed potato chips into the melted chocolate.
- Spread choc/chip mix over wax paper.
- Sprinkle the craisins/pieces/chips mix over the melted chocolate and press it all down in there so it sticks.
- Let chill in freezer for 15 minutes and then remove, break apart and enjoy.
A few people were confused initially by the addition of the potato chips. I even tried to tame the bark a bit by only adding in regular potato chips (BBQ chips are my usual PB&J addition). But it only took one bite for the skeptics to become believers.
It really did taste like a chip-filled peanut butter and jelly sandwich...covered in white chocolate. What's not to like?
