Ahhh, peanut butter and chocolate. The perfect marriage. And one of the most popular combinations for treats this time of year. I’ve made this bark each year since I first saw the recipe in Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine. It’s sinfully sweet and delicious and is a hit at parties. And it’s great for mailing. It has all the things I love about a treat: salty, sweet, and crunchy. I think what sets this bark apart from so many others is that, instead of just being chocolate, it has a crunchy crust made of Matzo crackers.
The candy thermometer. I don’t know why I was always scared to use one. They are super easy to use, and helpful too.
