A Chocolate Haunting

Monday, October 24, 2011


Nothing tests my will power quite like walking into the super market and seeing those big bags of Halloween goodness. Reese cups, Snickers, M&Ms, and Butterfingers all perfectly packaged in their bite size wrappers. Forget about ghosts and goblins, it's the chocolate candy bowl in the kitchen that is haunting me; forcing me to eat one every time I walk by : 0

Anyways, in case you need to rev up your chocolate with more chocolate, or you end up with an abundance of candy and not so many trick or treaters, or you have a networking event and want to make a little take home gift to attach your business card to, or you need an idea for a Halloween party favor, here's what you do!...


ingredients 
1 lb. bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
3 Butterfinger bars (or 8 fun size bars), chopped
3 toffee candy bars, chopped
8 Reese cups, cut into wedges
1/4 cup of honey roasted peanuts
3 oz. yellow and orange peanut M&Ms, chopped
3 oz. good quality white chocolate, chopped

directions
Line a baking sheet with foil.  Place the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water.  Heat, stirring occasionally until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.  Pour the chocolate over the foil and smooth into a thin layer with a spatula.  Evenly sprinkle the chopped candy bars, Reese cups, honey roasted peanuts, and peanut M&Ms over the melted chocolate.  Press gently to adhere the candy to the melted chocolate.  Transfer to the refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes.
Melt the white chocolate, again using the double boiler method, until smooth.  Drizzle over the chilled candy bark.  Return to the refrigerator and let chill again until the white chocolate is set, 3o minutes more.
Peel the sheet of chocolate away from the foil and break into irregular pieces.  Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Happy Haunting,
