Candy Corn Cookie Bark

While I was up in the middle of the night last night, I ran across this delicious Halloween Treat to get my mind off my headache and inability to sleep (it plagues me while I'm pregnant). I just couldn't resist making it today, and while Bryanna was in preschool it was an easy jaunt to the grocery store. I got this recipe off of Your Home Based Mom blog. I am not a big candy corn fan (don't like jelly beans or anything sugary like that), but my husband and kids could eat candy corn like it was popcorn. So this is for them!

They love to help whenever they get a chance (or when I'm feeling light hearted and Martha Stewartish), so we pulled out the aprons and went to the kitchen!

Can you see the ladder in the room behind the kids? Well, we have started yet another project and I will post all about it when we finish next week. We like to live under construction if you haven't noticed

Candy Corn Cookie Bark

~14 whole Oreos, broken up. I used the Halloween ones with the orange filling but regular will work fine
~1 1/2 C pretzels, broken into pieces. I used the small stick pretzels
~1 lb. white chocolate, almond bark or melts found in the bulk food section
~1 C candy corn
~brown and orange colored sprinkles

Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper. Spread broken cookies, pretzels and about 3/4 C of the candy corn onto the waxed paper. Place white chocolate in a container and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir and then microwave for another 30 seconds until melted and smooth. White chocolate melts faster and burns easier than chocolate.

Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cookie mixture, spreading with spatula if needed to coat evenly. Sprinkle remaining candy corn and colored sprinkles over the chocolate while it is still wet. Do not let it harden. Place cookie tray into refrigerator until set and firm. Remove and gently break bark into small pieces. Store in air tight container.
