I usually make Buckeyes but my sister is making them this year. I may try the oreo truffles with the vanilla bark. I'm not a big candy maker. My sis does a good job with the sweets so I let her do them! I'll be making a batch of snickerdoodles and a batch of crackerjack along with a cheese ball and a veggie dip. We have lots of snack food for Christmas and no big meals!

The trail mix bark is just kind of my own thing. I started it a few years ago and everyone loves it. I just take mixed nuts, chopped dried apricots, craisins, raisins, and broken banana chips. I mix it together, lay it out on a parchment lined cookie sheet and pour over it melted dark and white chocolate in kind of stripes and then just swirl it together so it is all covered (but don't "mix" the chocolates together too much. Let it cool and break it up!

Do you have an almond roca recipe or is there one here? If not I will be happy to post mine.

EDIT: I just realize you said "I have seen the others" which means there IS a recipe for Almond Roca."
