White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Christmas Bark

When I am feeling lazy one of my go-to Christmas desserts is bark because there is a lot less labor. No mixing, then rolling into balls or cutting into shapes. No baking tray after tray. Another Christmas Bark recipe that I love is my S’Mores Peppermint Chocolate Bark.

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Christmas Bark Ingredients

  • Wilton White Chocolate Melts 12 oz. (or white chocolate chips)
  • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
  • 3/4 cup mini Reese’s white chocolate peanut butter cups – halved
  • 1 cup Pretzel Snaps – broken into pieces
  • 1/2 cup red and green M&M candies
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter – melted

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Christmas Bark Instructions

1.  Line a 15 x 11 cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper and set aside.

2. Add the white chocolate and vegetable oil to a double boiler. To make a double boiler, take a pot and fill 1/4 of the way with water. On top of the pot put a bowl that completely covers the edge of the pot but does not touch the water (at least a 2″ to 3″ space between the bowl and water is optimal). Melt over medium heat, stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat and stir.

3.  Pour the melted white chocolate onto the cookie sheet.  Use a spatula to spread the chocolate out evenly.  This part doesn’t have to be perfect.

4.  Immediately sprinkle the broken pretzel pieces, white chocolate peanut butter cups and red and green M&M candies on top of the melted chocolate.  You will want to complete this step fast before the chocolate hardens.

5.  Chill for 30 minutes to allow the bark to completely harden. Set a timer on your phone so you don’t forget if you need the recipe ASAP.

6.  Once hardened, remove the bark from the refrigerator and set aside. Place the peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on HIGH for 20 seconds or until melted. Allow to cool and thicken for 5 minutes.

 7. Drizzle the peanut butter on top of the candy bark and chill again for 30 minutes to help the peanut butter solidify.

8. Before serving, break bark into pieces and ENJOY!

How to Make the Perfect Chocolate Bark Recipe

  1. Prepare the ingredients before starting. This recipe calls for 2 steps that can be done a couple days before starting. Breaking the pretzels and cutting the mini Reeses can be done beforehand and reduce work on the day of. This also helps you have everything you need and not have to run out and get things during the process.
  2. Choose real ingredients. For this recipe, I am using all-natural peanut butter. The less synthetic ingredients, the richer the recipe will taste.
  3. Don’t rush the chill times. This recipe is not layered, but some are and rushing through the layers will make your recipe look messy.
  4. Work quickly when adding ingredients to melted chocolate. A great bark has ingredients tucked inside the chocolate. For this recipe, adding the pretzels, M&M’s, and mini Reese cups allow those pieces to get stuck to the chocolate.
