Chocolate Peanut Butter Bark

  • Yield : 1 Pan
  • Prep Time : 5m
  • Cook Time : 3m
  • Ready In : 60m

Total Cost: $5 for a big bag of bark.

Here goes my usual disclaimer:  This isn’t exactly healthy, but it’s plant-based, on a budget and it tastes amazing.  So whip these up and have yourself a piece of bark at the end of the day as a treat.


Quick note:  If you’re like me, and don’t have a double boiler, you can do the following to make do just as well:

Using two pots, fill the larger up about a quarter-full with water and place the smaller dry one inside it.

Add the ingredients you want to melt into the smaller pot and begin boiling the water in the large pot on your stove.

The heat and steam from the water will slowly and smoothly melt what you have in the smaller pot, with less chance of burning it.  Just make sure to keep stirring!

  • 1 Cup Non Dairy Chocolate Chips
  • 3 Tablespoons Peanut Butter
  • I Cup Salted Peanuts
  • 1 Cup Pretzels, broken into small pieces


Step 1

Using a double boiler, microwave, or my preferred method, double boiler in a pinch (see above description), to melt the chocolate and peanut butter into smooth, creamy, goodness.

Step 2

Turn off the heat and add the peanuts and pretzel pieces and stir until coated.

Step 3

Pour the mixture into an 8 x 8 dish, and throw it into the fridge or freezer, depending on your patience level. After not chilling fast enough in the fridge, I put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes to get the party going.

Step 4

Once its solid all the way through, use a butter knife to crack into small pieces. Place them in a zip lock bag and throw it in the fridge or freezer and begin grazing immediately.

Jake switched to a plant based diet in 1996 and quickly realized he had no idea how to cook. All these years later and he's still trying to figure it out...
