Dark Chocolate Bark

1/2 cup broken mini pretzel twists
1/2 cup coarsely broken rippled potato chips
1/4 cup coarsely chopped lightly salted peanuts
1 2/3 cups NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Dark Chocolate Morsels

Line baking sheet with wax paper.

Combine pretzels, chips and peanuts in small bowl.

Microwave chocolate in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on Medium-high power for 45 seconds; stir. If pieces retain some of their original shape, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted. Stir in half of snack-peanut mixture.

Pour onto prepared baking sheet. Spread mixture to desired thickness. Sprinkle with remaining snack-pretzel mixture. Tap sheet several times to spread chocolate and settle pretzels. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm. Break into pieces. Store in airtight container at room temperature. Best when eaten within 24 hours.
