How to make pretzel bark
Step 1. Line the baking sheet
Add parchment paper to a baking sheet and lay the pretzel wheels on top. Make sure they’re in a single layer.
Step 2. Melt the chocolate
Add vegetable oil to the chocolate chips and put them in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt in the microwave for 30-second increments.
Step 3. Pour over the top
Pour the dark chocolate over each pretzel and cover them.
Step 4. Make lines
Grab a spoon and put the white chocolate over the top of the dark chocolate and make thin lines, then use a toothpick to drag the lines.
Step 5. Add the candy and sprinkles
Sprinkle on the peanut butter cups, sprinkles, and candy eyes over the top of the chocolate.

Put in the fridge for 30 minutes to harden. Once done, remove and break the pretzel bark into pieces with your hands.
