Halloween Chocolate Chip Cookie Bark

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

IMG_2816

Yesterday I has the awesome opportunity once again to be on “Talk of the Town Newschannel 5 in Nashville making this recipe for Chocolate Chipotle Cookies. I developed this recipe for Wisconsin Milk and Marketing Board and http://butterisbest.com working on a “regional holiday cookie” recipe project. This recipe represented the Southwest with the chipotle chocolate twist. Everyone at the station went wild over these cookies. They are wonderful for Christmas gifts or for a holiday cookie swap . Here’s the link from the television spot.

One of the best parts being a food blogger is when some of my favorite media writes about me, and it’s just out of the blue. Yesterday, a very famous food blog, “The Kitchn” listed their favorite top 10 Brittle and Bark recipes. I made it on the list in great company with Martha Stewart, Bon Appetit, Epicurious and many others. Check out the post http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/break-off-a-piece-barks-and-brittles-101614

This recipe ran last year during my first month of my blog. It’s 3 ingredients and fabulous. I will be making it on television next month in Birmingham NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama” and NewsChannel 4 CBS “Talk of the Town” in Nashville, Tennessee.
