If you are anything like me, than you hate to waste. That means, we are the annoying people that refuse to part with a bag of food until it is completely emptied of every last crumb. Look in my pantry and you’ll see bag after bag rolled, clipped or taped down to preserve those handful of goodies. So thank goodness for recipes like this Caramel Popcorn Candy Bark.
Bark is a great vehicle to use up those bits and pieces and odds and ends. Today’s bark is a five-ingredient recipe: caramel popcorn, crushed Butterfinger candy, mini M&Ms and a combination of both dark and white chocolate. It was amazing according to my boys, especially the little man, who I will admit has a sweet-tooth that rivals mine . . . and he’s only 2—GULP!
Don’t worry if you don’t have all the ingredients. Have fun with this recipe and use up what you have in your pantry! But I should share, Matt said the Butterfinger crumbles with caramel popcorn made this his favorite bark I’ve ever made.
- 8oz. dark chocolate, melted
- 4 oz. white chocolate,melted
- 1 1/2 cup caramel popcorn
- 3/4 cup crushed Butterfinger candy
- 3/4 cup mini M&Ms
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour dark chocolate onto parchment paper, using an offset spatula, spread chocolate to an even layer. Drizzle white chocolate top, using the tip of the off-set spatula, swirl it through the dark chocolate. Sprinkle the caramel popcorn, crushed Butterfinger and mini M&Ms on top. Transfer bark to refrigerator to chill and set. Remove five minutes prior to serving to bring to room temperature. Store in refrigerator.
