It’s Beach Week! This week, I’ll be making beach-themed treats in honor of my adopted east coast culture.

You see, out here, people spend weeks or even the entire summer at the beach with family and friends. I first did that ten years ago and it was a banner time. My friend told me to consider dating the man who is now my husband. And the rest is really and truly my history!

Beach towns are incredible. And not just because of all that sand. The food! The food is amazing. Popcorn. Fudge. Fries. Ice cream. Sometimes all together!

So my first love song to the beach this week is this bark. It brings together so many of the flavors of beachy treats without any hassle or fuss. Seriously. It’s so easy, and when you’re done, I swear seagulls will be swooping down into your kitchen to steal some.

I used white chocolate, buttery popcorn, chocolate chips, Oreos, peanut butter chips, and honey roasted peanuts. And then I had no more space to sprinkle anything else.

I briefly considered throwing some salt water taffy on there, but it didn’t feel right. Go with your gut, I always say!

This is 5 minutes in the making, but you have to let the chocolate harden overnight. If you use the refrigerator, the popcorn will get stale. In other words, more time for you to spend with your feet in the sand. No problem there!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup buttered popcorn
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 4-5 Oreos, broken into pieces
  • 1/2 cup honey roasted peanuts

 

Instructions:

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the white chocolate until it is smooth.

Spread the white chocolate evenly over a silicone baking mat or a large rectangular piece of parchment paper. Sprinkle on the remaining ingredients quickly, pressing them firmly into the white chocolate.

Let the bark harden overnight. Using your hands, break it into uneven pieces. Store in an airtight container.

  1. I would love to spend the whole summer at the beach, or in a beach town. So relaxing, and like you said, some incredible food! And this bark looks amazing! I love that you used white chocolate for the base. I actually make a chocolate bark a few months ago, and can’t wait to experiment with more flavors. I’ll definitely have to try out your recipe!
