Christmas Nutty Buddy Bark

With just 4 ingredients, you can make this crunchy, sweet, and salty peanut butter chocolate bark inspired by the Little Debbie Nutty Buddy!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 26 minutes
Servings 16


  • 20 ounces dark chocolate melting wafers I used two bags of Aldi brand but Ghiradelli also makes some.
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4-6 waffle cones
  • sprinkles, if desired!


  • Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt half of the dark chocolate melting wafers (10-ounces) according to package instructions. Spread into the prepared pan and then tap the pan on the counter a few times to help the chocolate smooth out. Place in the fridge for 5-10 minutes, or until hardened.
  • In a small bowl, melt peanut butter (½ cup) in the microwave for 15-30 seconds. You want it thin and pourable but not too hot, or else it will melt your chocolate.
  • Remove the chocolate pan from the fridge and pour the melted peanut butter on top. Use a spatula to spread it until the chocolate is covered.
  • Break 3-4 waffle cones into pieces and press on top of the peanut butter layer. I like to face the "waffle" texture on top to resemble the Nutty Buddys.
  • Melt the remaining dark chocolate melting wafers (10-ounces) according to package instructions.
  • Pour chocolate into a piping bag or gallon-sized ziploc bag and drizzle over top the waffle cone layer, then use a spatula to fill in any gaps. Tap the pan on the counter to smooth out the chocolate.
    Note: By using a piping bag, you avoid shifting the waffle cones around too much.
  • Immediately add sprinkles if desired and another 3-4 broken waffle cone pieces. Place in fridge to harden, then break apart!
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
