Game Day Bark

Football playoffs are here so bring out the snacks!! This recipe was actually inspired by all the leftover Christmas goodies I had from the holidays. It just so happened to be Football Sunday when I was craving something salty and sweet. Beer will do that to you…

Anyway these are super simple. All you need is chocolate bars, and well assorted snacks. In this recipe I did a kid and adult version.

The kid version is white chocolate with m&m’s, fruit loops, and pretzels. The adult version (my favorite) is a little more rich; semi sweet chocolate with dried cranberries, sliced almonds, chocolate granola, toffee bits, and sea salt.

But let’s face it, we are all kids at heart and both are equally delicious. This recipe was a touchdown for all ages!
