The no-oven challenge continues. . . .

Not having an oven has been kind of a challenge for me. All of my go-to recipes are baked. I
am not a fan of buying store bought baked goods. . . why? They are so expensive and just not as good (when i refer to this grouping it does not include fresh baked goods from Panera or the local french bakery). I say that in frustration because my oven is still in my living room (Ugh). But, discovering the many no-bake recipes out there has been quite fun. Here's another one that I found and made last week. These were really good. So very easy, and so very tasty! The pretzels and toffee are so yummy intertwined with all the chocolate-y goodness this bark has to offer. This recipe was really easy to make and was a nice treat for my husband's lunch. I only melted enough chocolate to go in my small green cake pan (It was from the Williams Sonoma kids line a couple years ago). It also took me until mid week to get these made, so the leftovers are in the freezer.

Toffee Pretzel Bark
recipe from the Brown Eyed Baker

14 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped
¾ cup broken pretzel pieces, divided
¾ cup Heath toffee pieces, divided
7 ounces white chocolate, finely chopped

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. In a double boiler or in a microwave on low power, melt the dark chocolate, stirring until the chocolate is smooth. Remove from the heat, and stir in ½ cup of the pretzel pieces and ½ cup of the toffee pieces. Spread the mixture on the prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Melt the white chocolate in the same manner as you did the dark chocolate, stirring until completely smooth. Remove the baking sheet from the refrigerator and spread the white chocolate on top of the hardened dark chocolate layer. Sprinkle with the remaining pretzel pieces and toffee, using your palm to lightly press them into the white chocolate. Return the pan to the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Use a sharp knife to cut the bark into pieces. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
