Dark Chocolate Oreo Pretzel Bark

First I made this Candy Corn White Chocolate Halloween Bark. Then I decided to embrace my dark chocolate loving side and make this Dark Chocolate Oreo Pretzel Bark.

Since Halloween is less than 2 weeks away, I topped this bark with Halloween themed sprinkles.  But you can make this bark for any holiday or occasion. Change the color of the sprinkles used to coordinate with the holiday or event you’re celebrating.

If you’re a fan of sweet and salty treats, then this bark is totally for you. The crunchy, salty pretzels paired with Oreo cookies, bittersweet chocolate and salted caramel sauce is a match made in heaven for the sweet and salty lovers. I’m a fan of sweet and salty treats.  I’ve been stuffing my face with this bark since I made it. But as much as I like this bark, I wasn’t totally selfish with it. I shared some of it with my co-workers. And I even let Ken have a piece.

I don’t know what’s gotten into me lately but I’m turning into a full blown chocoholic. I may or may not dream about it and I’ve certainly dug into the candy bags that I bought for the trick-or-treaters. I even keep a stash of chocolate in my desk at work. I just restocked my pantry with more baking chips. You can bet that I’ll be making more chocolate candy bark soon. Until then, I hope you enjoy this candy  bark recipe.
