How to make pretzel bark

Step 1. Line the baking sheet

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.

To keep the pretzel bark fresh, store it in an airtight container. It can be stored at room temperature or in the fridge, up to you.
