Movie Theater Candy Chocolate Bark

YIELD: SERVES 2-4
 
TOTAL TIME: 1 HOUR


ingredients:

16 ounces of your favorite milk or dark chocolate1 1/2 cups buttered + salted popcorn1/3 cup gummy bears1/4 cup reese’s pieces or m&m’s2 tablespoons salted peanutsassorted sprinkles…+ any of your other favorite movie candy!



directions:

Line a small baking sheet with a sheet of aluminum foil, then place a sheet of parchment paper over it.
Melt 14 ounces of the chocolate, either in the microwave (I do this in 30 second increments, stirring afterwards until it is all melted - be careful, it can burn quickly!) or with a double boiler. Pour the chocolate on the parchment paper and use a spatula to spread it into a square or rectangle. Throw some of the popcorn, candy and sprinkles on top any way you like, making sure they stick. To make the bark quickly, stick the pan in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Melt the remaining 2 ounces of chocolate, remove the pan from the fridge and drizzle it over top. Add any additional candy or sprinkles you’d like, then place back in the fridge for a few minutes to set.

I’m not much of a pie person, so I made apple cobbler. Served with ice cream, of course. #merica

Recipe:
Easy, Foolproof Cobbler for Any Fruitmakes enough for a 9x9 baking dish
1 1/2 cups flour1 1/2 cups sugar, plus a bit more for sprinkling1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, meltedfresh berries or fruit (peeled and cut into chunks)
Combine the flour and sugar. Add the butter, mixing as you go, until the mixture forms a soft dough. It can be slightly crumbly, but you want it to hold together when you squeeze it.
Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Put the fruit in the dish — you will probably need about 4 cups of berries or chopped fruit. You want to create a thick layer that comes about two inches up the sides.If the fruit is particularly tart, sprinkle with a light layer of sugar. If the fruit is soft and sweet, you don’t need it.
Take the dough by the handful and pat it into disks that are about 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch thick. Lay them on top of the fruit, continuing with the patties, until it is covered. Bake the cobbler at 350 degrees for about 45-50 minutes, until the crust is light golden brown. Let cool slightly, then serve with ice cream.

These cookie butter-filled pumpkin muffins I made yesterday evening are amazing.
[Update: Recipe from here. I replaced Nutella with cookie butter and chose to put it as a blob in the middle instead of swirling it through.]
