Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? Of course, I do. I also love making candy and bark-type recipes for the holidays. I wondered, why not combine the two into something wonderful for Halloween? This Chocolate Chip Cookie Bark is fantastic. You don’t even need a mixer. It has just the basic cookie ingredients, mini chocolate chips and Reese’s Pieces. I will be making this recipe for my “Halloween Treat” cooking segment this week on Nashvillle’s top ranked talk show, NewsChannel 5 “Talk of the Town” on Thursday, October 28th along with 2 other creative Halloween treats. I will try to post the TV link when I get it. Happy Halloween week! Alison
