I have a few of Paula Deen's cookbooks. Friday I was looking for a quick treat to whip up and bring to Morris for a small gathering to be held after the home football game. I stumbled upon the Pretzel-Peanut bark recipe in the Paula Deen Celebrates cookbook. Three ingredients and a few minutes was all it took to whip up this sweet/salty treat. I love me some white chocolate so this was perfect for me. It was also a hit at the party and is now but a distant memory.
18 squares (1 oz. each) white chocolate
3 c. skinny pretzel stick broken into small peices but not crushed (measure after breaking)
2 c. peanuts (I used honey roasted) I also chopped these up a bit so they were not whole or half peanuts.
Melt chocolate in microwave. I did for 1 min. on high and then stirred and back in the microwave for about 40 more seconds. It was perfectely melted. Stir in the pretzels and peanuts. Spread onto a sheet of waxed paper. Let cool and harden. Break into pieces and eat.
