So Simple and So Yummy......

so quick and so easy....

need a quick gift....have company coming over......

way back when I started my blog, I talked about my quick and easy chocolate candy recipe. It really is the easiest thing to make and I don't even know if it qualifies as a recipe. If there are recipe rules, I don't think this one would make the cut!

All you need is a bar of almond bark-I get the chocolate one but it comes in white too-and a jar of peanuts-you could use other kinds of nuts too. I always keep these two ingredients in my house. All I do is microwave the almond bark-I usually cut it in half first-at 30 second intervals in the microwave. You could do the whole double boiler thing but.... why? After the almond bark is all melted, you dump in the jar of peanuts and stir it all together. Then you just take cookie sheets covered with wax paper, take a spoon and plop spoonfuls of the chocolate/peanut mixture on the cookie sheet-no forming, no worrying about shapes, no measuring, just plop. Put it in the fridge to let it harden. It doesn't take long.

Once the first batch is ready, you are going to want to start again at All you need is a bar of almond bark because it's so yummy and needs to be sampled and sampled again and again and before you know it, the first batch is gone and you still need one for guests or presents!

I made this for Teacher Appreciation Week last Thursday and I have never had so many people ask me for a recipe. They all loved it. Of course, everyone thinks you spend a lot of time on it, so I made them sweat it out a bit with the recipe sharing-haha, not really, I love to share all that is quick, easy and not that expensive, but seems the opposite.
