Halloween Candy Corn Cookie Bark

This should be outlawed as it probably could send the average person into a diabetic coma but as it so happens, I everything on hand and a bored 6-yr. old.   Perfect combination for a Sunday afternoon activity.  This is one of those recipes that you can (and should) alter to suit whatever candy you have leftover.  I'm wasn't even going to post this but my mom was kindly dropping off some dinner in my fridge when she discovered this.  She then promptly called me at work and declared that whatever she just found in my fridge was the best thing she ever ate.  Since we all shamelessly consumed our first tray, I'll be making more of this next week for teachers and maybe a lucky friend or two! 

14 whole Oreos, broken up (use Halloween Oreos if you can find them)
1 1/2 cups pretzels - any shape, broken into pieces
16 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup candy corn
brown and orange colored sprinkles

Cover a large cookie sheet with wax paper, parchment paper or use a silpat mat.  Melt chocolate chips in microwave in 30-second intervals until full melted.  Spread chocolate on cookie sheet and the sprinkle with broken cookies, pretzels and the candy corn. Gently press cookies, candy and pretzels into chocolate.  Sprinkle with decorative Halloween sprinkles.  Place bark in refrigerator until set and firm. Remove and gently break bark into small pieces. Store in air tight container.
