Candy Corn Bark

Today is mom and dad's Halloween pawty over at the Crump barn.  We're sure you have all heard by now that we're supposed to get snow this evening and into tonight and possibly wake up to 6-10" on the ground.   This morning we came back from walkies around 7:30 AM and our power was already out!  WHAT???!!!  Mom needs to prepare for this pawty!  
Around 9 AM it came back on thank doG!

These are the ingredients for the Candy Corn Bark~

 This is the first time that I've ever had an Oreo cookie!  Mom says that the recipe called for the chocolate ones with the orange cream filling but her store didn't have them so she bought these instead. 
How lucky for me that I could try the half that wasn't chocolate!

A pretzel!  Thank you!
 You lightly butter your cookie sheet and add 16 crushed cookies, 1 1/2 cups of broken pretzel pieces, 1/3 cup of peanuts and 1/3 cup chocolate covered raisins.
The white chocolate is melting in the double boiler on the stove and you drizzle the chocolate over the broken stuff on the cookie sheet.

 Well - the chocolate didn't DRIZZLE! It clumped and made a big glop and mom ended up smashing it down on the cookie sheet to "glue" all of the broken pieces together.

Then you sprinkle on the candy corn and let it cool. 

It's not supposed to be cut.  It's supposed to be broken into pieces and that did work.   It's not so bad, right?
Help yourself.  There's plenty of it!

We just poked our heads out the back door!  Oh no!  We love snow but we do want mom and dad's pawty to be a success!

So until next time...............

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Our mom was drooling over the recipe for the Candy Corn Bark! Maybe she'll make some and I can taste-test the vanilla part of the Oreo, too! AND a pretzel!!!
Woo. Snow. Already! You guys are lucky, but that Airedale that monitors your wind looks mighty cold; I hope she's OK!

Your candy corn bark looks delightful! H-Mom is going to steal the recipe BAHAHAHAHAHHA (scarey laugh!) We would much rather have snow, which is beautiful, than RAIN and WORMS, which are dreadful.

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Mom shared your bark recipe with our human sisters and they are both going to make it tomorrow - looks sooooooooooo good.

We would love some of that snow, but what we are reading about how it is impacting CT is not good at all. We hope all is well with you. Lots of downed trees and power lines. Paws crossed you are OK, and we sure hope that new roof is OK.

Hi Maggie and Mitch!
Wow, the treat looks so yummy!! You are lucky you had some.
You have already had snow.
Stay warm and take care!

Princess Patches said...

OMD! The candy corn stuff looks very yummy! But we loooooove your weather vane! We hope your peeps were able to get to the pawty! When my mom lived in Ohio, she saw lots of snowflakes on Halloween, but never enough to stick! Now, you'll be able to follow the footprints of anyone who may do tricks at your house!


Unknown said...

Oh my, snow already!!!

It looks so pretty there but I guess it's really cold too, keep warm!

My Dog Sam - Ruptured Disk said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch, wow you guys have snow already. How cool is that? It's cold and rainy outside up here on the coast but no snow except way up in the mountains. I hope that your mom's party was a success.
