How to Make Easy Microwave Peanut Butter Candy


  1. Place bark candy coating in large microwave safe bowl. Melt bark candy coating in microwave in 30 second increments until completely melted. Stir after each increment to be able to remove when completely melted. Do not overheat!
  2. Add peanut butter, peanuts, miniature marshmallows and rice krispies and stir until combined.
  3. Drop by tablespoonfuls on wax paper. Allow to cool and harden. This will freeze well. My favorite is vanilla bark. It is so addictive! You can't eat just one!
