I’ve never eaten bark before! This looks like something I’d love to try.
Katrina Weghorn says
We have made a recipe very very similar to this one and love it!
We’ve even used peanut butter “chips” with the chocolate ones, and tried a few different kind of nuts.
Thanks for posting this Christmas Bark recipe!
Jennipher H says
I love this! So simple to make and looks delicious. I made some Christmas Bark once, but it had peppermint on top to make it a little more festive-looking and fresh. 🙂 I may try this one though!

This is a fun way to countdown to Christmas. I am already loving some of these Pinetrest recipes and also finding new Facebook and Twitter blogs I now like. Sharing to #Win one of the Amazon gift cards as this would go a long way as I am single disabled mom. Good luck to all!

Rebecca Parsons says
I love bark and try to make it every year for Christmas. I hope you don’t mind if I re-pin your posts for my future recipe references.
cheryla lister says
I’ve heard about this Christmas bark recipe and it is supposed to be fantastic. Definitely want to try it, Crackers in candy is so unusual!
Jennifer C. says
I love christmas bark! I make it every year. It is a good thing that I am not making it any other time of year, though, if you know what I mean. Looking forward to reading the following 99 days.
shelby elwood says
I am super excited for Christmas…my favorite time of year!!! So glad I found this page just in time:)
Laura Harper says
I love the sweet and salty things and this sounds like it’s right up my
alley. Christmas is my favorite time of year and with all the stress and
hectic running around it’s easy to forget the reason for the season, but
slowing down and taking time to make things, cooking/baking or crafting,
with the kids is one of the greatest things of all. Memories.
Cristy S says
Seems a crime to call it Christmas Bark when it would be tasty all year round!
Susan Broughton says
It seems like the year has just flown by! It’s hard to believe that theres just that many days till Christmas
Kristine Pavlik says
No matter how much I plan I am never ready for Christmas. So this year I am glad I have found blogs like yours to help me.
JJ Caraway says
The combination of salty and sweet sound so delicious and I am going to make this for Christmas this year. I have pinned the recipe for later viewing so thanks so much for sharing.
Chrystal D says
Christmas always seem to come so quickly!
Christine Mondy says
Wow, I can’t believe Xmas is almost here! I also need to start going through recipes and figuring out what dishes I will try this year. I try to make at least 2 new items each year, but I don’t get too fancy! Simple is fine!
Well I have no idea how I could have made it to my age without ever coming across this! I am certainly going to try my hand at making this…and I don’t think I will wait until Christmas to do it 🙂
I love Christmas Bark, it’s a tradition in our house we make Christmas bark, peppermint bark , fudge, divinity, aunt bills brown candy and toffee for the holidays.
Jeannie Eplion-Holley says
I have never attempted to make Christmas Bark but I think I will just have to give it a try this year with this recipe 🙂
Terrie Swanson says
The first and only time I made christmas bark was last year and I don’t no why. It was the hit of the season. We all loved it and now you’ve given me another recipe to try. Thanks.
Gloria Walshver says
I am of the Jewish faith so I don’t celebrate Christmas.
Elizabeth Fitzmaurice says
Would you believe that I’ve not only never made Christmas Bark, but I don’t think I’ve ever even tried it. But it looks like it’s yummy. I’m adding it to my Recipe Box for this Christmas! Thanks.
Can’t believe Christmas is so close! I will have to start planning my baking now in order to get everything done!
Bark candy is such an easy and festive treat to make!! Confession here – I’ve never made it myself, but I’ve had so many friends and family members make it that I don’t know why I don’t just jump in. Maybe this is my year. 🙂
Jan Hall says
Christmas is getting here way too fast for me. The only good thing for me is I refuse to go into debt. It means I can’t buy everything I want to but that is OK
Allyson Bossie says
I want to make a Christmas Bark this year! This one looks amazing, and definitely choc full the way I like it!
Christina Marie says
Less than 100 days until Christmas, yikes! I’m not over last Christmas yet!
Victoria Cortinas says
I can’t believe we are already so close to Christmas. I am excited about and a little stressed, but holiday baking always makes me feel better. 🙂
Sweta Sonulkar says
I am excited this winter for christmas and the countdown has begun and I am planning ,getting help,gathering information from all over websites to decorate home,baking,gift packing,children’s toys lists and families wishlists.
Kim Pinch says
Christmas bark is one of our favorites but it is so expensive to buy. I love trying all the different recipes for it. Even though I found one that we all love I still want to try others.
Cathy French says
I had no idea how easy the Christmas Bark is and would have had absolutely no idea that saltines would be an ingredient. How easy and looks very tasty.
Jane Ritz says
I love that. I will make it for Christmas. I’m gaining weight just by looking at the pictures, YUMMY!
sherry butcher says
Love this Christmas Bark recipe but was wondering if there is any way to cut down on the calories and carbs? Have anyone tried using the fake brown sugar? I think I would try it to see, but would love to have someone who has already do it let me know.
Megan Parsons says
I’ve never had anything like this, but I am going to have to make it and try it! Thanks for sharing!
Rebecca Parsons says
I am like that too. I collect recipes and sort through and start baking. I do however give baskets of goodies to neighbors and family and they all seem to like it. I have even had a neighbor boy ask me when it gets close to christmas if I was bringing him some cookies!
This is that Christmas crack stuff that everyone is talking about! Before Pinterest, I had no idea that you could use saltines as a base for chocolate bark. Now it’s common knowledge. Does that mean I’ve tried it yet? Nope. Maybe this year will be the year that I make it for Christmas!
We make something very similar to this Christmas Bark.
I can only imagine it’s as wonderful as what my family enjoys! Plus the nuts on top add protein to help balance the sugars, which is important for my crew.
Thanks for sharing!!
kathy kukla says
I love Baking for the Holidays. The house smells sooo good! Thanks for the Giveaway!

Anita L says
Christmas is an exciting time of year for me. I am always baking and searching for new recipes to try. I’m looking forward to trying the Christmas Bark 🙂
Amber H. says
That looks delicious. Every year around Christmas my family makes toffee.
Sandra McFadden says
I love making all types of christmas candy…………..its the greatest gift to give someone is their favorite candy!
Cindy Merrill says
The Christmas bark recipe does look scrumptious, however, it’s a huge no no for my folks because diabetics in my family would be tempted.
I make sugar-free treats as much as possible for the holidays- a big favorite is my golden raisin pie- which is simply delicious. I only use 3 ingredients for the filling; Golden raisins, fresh squeezed orange juice and apple pie ground spice.
Kelly A. Tanner says
That Christmas Bark looks so delicious! I am excited to make candies and cookies for the holidays!
Jan Hall says
I am going to have to try the Christmas Bark recipe. It sounds easy and delicious
Linda Petteys says
I love the fall but the summer seemed to go too fast this year – for me anyway. The Christmas Bark looks delicious and would be a great little hostess gift or take with you gift for a guest around the holidays. thanks
