This Candied Peanut Chocolate Bark
is a mouthful, in more ways than one. I never thought I could love a simple slab of candy so much, but this bark has completely won me over. It starts with peanuts caramelized until they are a deep, smoky golden brown. Then chocolate is melted with peanut butter to form the rich, nutty base of the candy, and the nuts are scattered on top. If you must take a shortcut, you can use purchased toffee peanuts, but I think half the charm of this bark is the darkly caramelized, freshly made nuts. Every bite is sweet, salty, crunchy, and so, so good.
