My sister's co-worker brought these to a party and they were quite a hit. I don't know where the recipe came from originally.
"Bark" is an artificial chocolate or vanilla candy coating/confectioner's coating used to make a treat called almond bark and can be found at most grocery stores near the chocolate chips.
You can use chocolate chips and white chocolate chips if you don't have almond bark, but I have found that almond bark melts better and is easier to work with.
You can make these in the oven and/or gas grill too using the highest heat settings but the campfire method is the traditional one. I have been making these babies for over 45 years -- I was raised in a log cabin and we made them in the fireplace coals all the time. The flavor is heavenly. This is a LOT of fun for the kids and, closely supervised, (and given a little assistance), they can make their own. Enjoy.
These cookies never last out the day at work, church get-togethers or wherever I take them. I got this recipe back in high school in my German class and have been making them ever since. Yummy! They've become my annual blue ribbon winner at the local county fair.
I adopted this recipe during the Recipezaar abandoned account recipe adoption. This is a delicious pie with an easy, no fuss crust. The crust is tender and flaky at the same time and the flavor is just the perfect amount of sweetness! Try it and you'll see why it is a Festival winning apple pie! 10/12/04, Edited: cooking time/temperature
Before Cool Whip and instant pudding, this was how a cream pie was made. If you leave out the bananas, you have vanilla cream pie. If you add 1 cup shredded coconut to milk as it's being heated, you have coconut cream pie.
