1pound dark chocolate
10 chocolate sandwich cookies, roughly chopped
1/2cup pretzel pieces
1/2 cup Heath toffee bits
1/2 cup chopped peanuts and almonds
sea salt, for sprinkling


  1. Chop cookies, pretzels, toffee and nuts so that they are ready to place on bark. Line a baking dish, plastic container or cookie sheet with parchment paper or plastic wrap.
  2. Melt chocolate according to package instructions. Pour melted chocolate onto parchment paper and spread to desired thickness.
  3. While chocolate is still hot, quickly add cookie and pretzel pieces. Then sprinkle on toffee, peanuts and a little sea salt.
  4. Allow chocolate to set. You can place the bark in the refrigerator to speed up the process. Once the cowboy bark is set, break into pieces and enjoy.
