Halloween Candy Bark

This is a great way to use up all that leftover candy from Halloween, or to make as treats to give away.  Mix and match your favorite candies,  mine are:  Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Reese's Pieces and Butterfingers.  I found this recipe in Bon Appetit and adapted it slightly, adapt as you like using your favorite candies.

1 lb Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Chips
About 10 oz of Butterfingers candy bars, cut into irregular 1" pieces (or your choice of candy)
About 4 oz of Reese's Peanut Butter cups, cut into small wedges (or your choice of candy)
1/4 cup honey-roasted peanuts
3 oz white chocolate, chopped
Reese's Pieces or M & M's 
Line a 9 X 13"baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Place chocolate chips in a heavy med saucepan over low heat and stir until melted and warm.  Pour melted chocolate onto foil and spread evenly.  Sprinkle with your choice of candies - I used the butterfinger pieces and peanut butter cups, make sure your candy and nuts are touching the melted chocolate to adhere. Place white chocolate in a heavy small saucepan over low heat and stir until melted and warm.  Remove from heat and drizzle chocolate over candy with a spoon.  Scatter Reese's Pieces all over - making sure candy touches the melted chocolate to adhere.  Chill toffee in refrigerator until firm, about 30 minutes.  Peel toffee off foil and break up into pieces.
