Reese's Peanut Butter White Chocolate Bark

I made all of these candies for Christmas gifts, and still had plenty left over for dessert (this doesn't even show how much I put away in the freezer).  I made Reese's Peanut Butter White Chocolate Bark, Homemade Almond Joy Candies and Nut Goodie Bars.  I will be posting the rest of the recipes over the next few days.

Let's start with the Reese's Peanut Butter White Chocolate Bark.  I found this recipe on Sally's Baking Addiction.    It's very easy to make and goes together quickly.

Printable Recipe

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt

16 oz white almond bark

1/2 cup Reese's Pieces candies
1/4 cup peanut butter chips

Line a 9x13" pan with parchment paper and set aside.

In a ziplock bag, crush the Reese's Pieces and peanut butter chips with a rolling pin and set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together the peanut butter, powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and salt until smooth and creamy.  Set aside.

In another bowl set over a bowl of simmering hot water, melt the white almond bark until melted and smooth.  Pour half into the parchment-lined pan and spread out evenly.  Chill for a few minutes until set.  Spoon the peanut butter mixture over the bark layer and spread evenly.  Pour the remaining white bark over on top and spread evenly.  Sprinkle with the crushed candies and peanut butter chips.  If desired, if you have any leftover melted bark, drizzle over on top of the candies.  Chill until set and cut up into pieces.
