M&M Pretzel Bark

I picked up some bags of those pretty Valentine M&Ms a few weeks ago and have been wanting to make something with them.  I decided a chocolate bark would be delish and I was right.  I added pretzels for a little crunch and some sprinkles for some extra bling.  This bark is so good and will be perfect for your Valentine!!

 You will need about 20 oz. of chocolate melting caps (I used about 4 cups), 1 1/2 cups of pretzel twists, 1 cup of M&Ms, divided, and some sprinkles for a little bling!

 Break the pretzels slightly to get smaller pieces.  I broke them in half.  Lay out a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet.  Notice I forgot to do this.  Get the cookie sheet under there.  You will need to be able to carry this to the fridge.  Fortunately, I was able to get the cookie sheet under later without messing up my finished bark.   Lay all the pretzels and 1/2 cup of the M&Ms (save the other 1/2 cup to sprinkle on top) on parchment in a rectangle.  My rectangle was about the size of a sheet of paper (8 1/2x11). 

Melt chocolate in the microwave for 25 second intervals until chocolate is completely melted.  Stir in between times.  Spread chocolate evenly over pretzel and candy mixture.  I drizzled the chocolate around the edges first to sort of hold everything in place.  Do this slowly so the pretzels and candy don't move around too much.  Spread chocolate evenly over all.  I wish I had spread mine just a tad thinner through the middle.  It was a little too thick but still delicious!!  :)

While the chocolate is still melted, sprinkle on the remainder of the M&Ms and some sprinkles!

Chill in the refrigerator until set and break into pieces!
