Polynesian Macadamia Nut Bark

One of my favorite candy bars as a kid was the Chunky Bar. What a great combination of milk chocolate, nuts and raisins! This is my "Polynesian" version of that popular candt bar!

  • 3In a large, microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate: heat for one minute on high setting. Stir and heat again. Stir. If not melted, cook on high for 15 second intervals, stirring between each, until mostly melted. Stir well to make sure all pieces are melted.
