REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
This recipe comes from the 2006 Christmas with Southern Living Book. I have been making it each year since. It is easy and it is fantastic. Always a hit around the holidays and it makes a ton of candy.

Used this recipe as guide - turned out wonderful - improvised a little with ingredients replaced pecans with mixed nuts and used both white and chocolate bark as needed. At first did not harden but added more bark and cooled in freezer for few minutes (live in NOLA - high humidity) CAME OUT WONDERFUL!!! At least few dozen and more than we needed. Finished out leftover (mostly choclate mixture) with chopped pecans and marshmellows and spread in foil lined box - came out like fudge. GREAT RECIPE and came out great on my first try!! with

These were great. I only had 12 squares of the bark so put those plus 10 of the white bark in. Then I put a 15 oz can of cashews in. The crock pot worked great for melting and keeping warm as we were dropping them on the wax paper!!!
