It’s ODD how our palettes can CHANGE over time.

We may hate something as a child but grow up to love it!

For me, that “thing” was peanut butter and as a kid, I REFUSED to eat it in any form.

But nowadays, I CAN’T get enough of peanut butter…

It’s in my cookiesenergy bites, granola bars and even trifles!

Let’s add this AWESOME chocolate peanut butter cracker bark to that list too! 😀

I USUALLY make a plain and simple chocolate peanut butter bark.

But this time, I decided to take it up a notch.

I added a layer of salted crackers and used the honey roasted peanut butter from Peter Pan.

Obviously, I couldn’t resist topping everything off with SPRINKLES! 😉

Not only does this bark look fabulous but it tastes SUPERB!

It’s SWEET and SALTY, has a hint of honey flavor and a little crunch from the teeny tiny peanuts in the peanut butter.

I used Peter Pan’s honey roasted peanut butter in this bark since I  have been CURIOUS about trying it for a while now, especially after reading that it’s “creamy with a bit of crunch.”

After sampling it, I quickly realized that it TRULY lives up to its name!

Best of all, you DON’T have to stir it  before spreading it on toast or even in the making of this bark…YAY!

Anyways, while making this bark, I realized that this would make a great HOMEMADE GIFT.

So, I put together a gift box for “Make your own chocolate peanut butter cracker bark.”

In this box, I INCLUDED a handwritten recipe (since it adds a nice personal touch), Peter Pan’s honey roasted peanut butter, salted crackers, chocolate chips, sprinkles, parchment paper, wooden chopstick and spatula…. basically everything you need to make YOUR own choco peanut butter bark!

You can give this gift to anyone, any time of the year and NOT just the holiday season! 😀

homemade gift box for chocolate peanut butter cracker bark 10To make this chocolate peanut butter cracker bark, you will need the following ingredients and supplies:

5 cups melted chocolate
4-5 tablespoons Honey roasted peanut butter (Peter Pan)
Parchment paper
Cookie tray or a square cake pan
Salted crackers
Colorful sprinkles
Wooden skewer or chopstick
Spatula

Notes: 
– You can use more or less chocolate based on your preference. If you want a big emphasis on the peanut butter flavor, then  just spread a thin layer of chocolate in each layer of your bark.

– You can add lots of sprinkles, if you like.  I only added a small amount, just enough to give this bark a pop of color.

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
Line the cookie tray or cake pan with parchment paper.
Pour about 2 cups of melted chocolate in the center.

Step 2:
Use a spatula to spread the chocolate over the entire pan.

Step 3:
Arrange a layer of salted crackers on top of the chocolate.

Step 4:
Pour 3 more cups of melted chocolate in the center.

Step 5:
Use a spatula to spread the chocolate completely over the crackers.

Step 6:
Spoon out a few tablespoons of peanut butter.

Step 7:
Drop them randomly on top of the chocolate.

Step 8:
Run a wooden skewer or chopstick through the melted chocolate and peanut butter until you have lots of swirls and a beautiful marbled effect.

Step 9:
Toss some sprinkles on top of this chocolate bark.
Place the pan in the freezer for 30 minutes to allow the chocolate and peanut butter to set and harden.

Step 10:
Flip the pan onto a table and remove the parchment paper and break the bark into random pieces.
You can also use a knife to cut random pieces.

Tip:
I highly suggest wearing gloves when breaking this chocolate bark or else the chocolate will start melting due to the heat of your hands and you will end up with ugly smudges :S

And you are done!

    I am a little confused – your recipe calls for 5 cups of chocolate but you are only putting 2 cups in the gift box? Its sounds wonderful and I love making gift boxes to hand out my annual party so just checking so I do it right. Thx

      Thanks for catching the error. I have updated the post. It should have been 2 1/2 cups in the gift box since I halved the recipe because the cute boxes I wanted to use for the gift were not that big…hehe. I added extra crackers coz sometimes they break and I added lots of sprinkles for people who want to add more sprinkles to their bark. Hope this helps 🙂
