1.    Santa Bark

The red and green M&Ms make this bark the aesthetically perfect choice for a holiday dessert although you could use any M&M color scheme to fit any holiday occasion.  

INGREDIENTS
35 saltine crackers
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 3/4 c. semisweet chocolate chips
1 bag red and green holiday M&Ms
1 jar holiday sprinkles, your choice


DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet or jelly-roll pan with tin foil and coat with cooking spray. Line the baking sheet with Saltine crackers. Set aside.
In a medium-sized saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously, for about 2 minutes. Pour mixture over crackers in an even layer and bake 5-6 minutes. Top with chocolate chips, baking for 3 minutes, or until melted. Top with mini marshmallows, red and green M&Ms and holiday sprinkles. Cut into squares, then cool until the chocolate has hardened.


2.    Oreo Bark Heaven

Who doesn’t have an oreo obsession?  This delectable dessert is the perfect balance of white chocolate, crunch, and creamy.  This is sure to be your favorite new recipe.
