  • 8 oz. Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 8 oz. Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1/3 c Pretzels crushed
  • 1/2 c Oreos roughly chopped
  • 1/4 c Peanuts crushed
  • 1/4 c Almonds crushed
  • 1/3 c Toffee crushed (for authentic Cowboy Bark I omitted it because I didn't have it on hand)


  • Have all of the toppings chopped and ready to go.
  • Place a silicone mat/parchment paper/wax paper on a cookie sheet.
  • Melt the two types of chocolate in the microwave, stopping to stir every 15 seconds until chocolate is smooth.
  • Pour on to the cookie sheet spreading the chocolate out evenly over the sheet, keeping it about 1/8 inch thick.
  • Sprinkle toppings across the chocolate pressing down lightly to make sure they stick to the chocolate.
  • Place cookie sheet in refrigerator for 1 hour or until chocolate has hardened.
  • Break up chocolate into large pieces.
  • Try to share!
