Cowgirl Bark

As I was brainstorming (aka surfing Pinterest) for ideas for my daughter's cowgirl party
I came across some yummy-looking cowboy bark, and I thought, hmmm, I wonder if we can cowGIRL this up?

So, I swapped out the traditional chocolate for white chocolate and went from there. 

It turned out cute and yummy--nothing like sweet and salty together. 
It was like eating those white-chocolate dipped pretzels at Christmas time, only totally decked-out.

We had pretzels, white chocolate, salty peanuts, crushed berry Oreos and even of blue almond bark to go ahead and color-coordinate to the utmost. 

Also, did I mention, easy? 
I went crazy and offered more treats than I'm sure I will ever do again, BUT the were easy, so it was no biggy. 

This is one of those, there-isn't-really-a-recipe sort of things, but here's what I did:
  1. Melt yourself some white chocolate (or almond bark...whatever you are into).
  2. Pour this onto a piece of parchment paper or one of those silpat baking mats. (Have I mentioned yet how great those are? Love mine. Alas, I found out the hard way they are not good for cutting on....mine of slits in them, and yet they keep working wonderfully.)
  3. Now, chop up some salted peanuts and scatter it over the melted chocolate.
  4. Break up some pretzels and scatter them on.
  5. Break up some berry Oreos (or plain, but the pink is fun for cowgirl) and smoosh those on. 
  6. Sprinkle with some sea salt.
  7. Keep going until the whole thing is covered. Wait until it hardens, break it to chunks and voila! Cowgirl Bark!
Personally, I'm not much of a white chocolate fan. Yes, yes, I completely made this for looks alone. The cowBOY bark looks fantastic and if you really do like those white-chocolate pretzels that are so ever-present around the holidays, then you'll probably revel in this. I know my kiddos did. :) 

Go ahead, spend 10 minutes and make some for the cowgirls in your life. :)
