Line a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment or waxed paper.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water until smooth.

Stir in the pretzel pieces and peanuts. (Stir well with a flexible spatula.).
Spoon onto the prepared cookie sheet, spreading the mixture out so that ingredients are relatively evenly distributed.
Allow for the chocolate to cool for several hours or refrigerate for about 45 minutes, until firm.
Break the bark into irregular pieces, like peanut brittle.
