Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. (Take care to avoid wrinkles.)

  • Place chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted. (Alternatively, place in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.)

  • Combine peanuts, raisins and pretzels in a small bowl. Stir half of the mixture into the melted chocolate. Scrape the chocolate onto the foil and spread it into a 9-inch square. Sprinkle with the remaining trail mix, pressing any large bits in. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.

  • Transfer the bark and foil to a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces.


Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate airtight for up to 2 weeks.
