How to Make Stuff

Years ago, when we lived in Hawaii, I would often go to the outlet mall for some window shopping and an escape from the kiddos. While there, I would visit the chocolate/candy store. I rarely ever bought anything because they always had samples available and, let's face it, why buy anything when you can get it for free. (Don't judge, we were--still are--poor...) One day, though, the sample was so fabulous that I ended up buying a pound of the stuff. They called it ono bark and it was one of the most fabulous things I'd ever tried. So, I took my over-priced pound of the stuff home and set out to make it myself. After about six months and a dozen attempts (which the hubby and my dad tested without too much complaining), I finally came up with something very close and just as fab as the original. I've made the stuff many times over the years and everyone loves it, so I thought I'd share the recipe. I have to warn you, though, this stuff will ruin any diet :)


12 oz. White Chocolate
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1 1/4 cup Rice Krispies
1 cup Mini Marshmellows
1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips

Melt the white chocolate according to the instructions on the package. Stir in peanut butter and add rice krispies. Let cool. (Needs to be cool enough so that the marshmellows and chocolate chips don't melt when added, but not cool enough that it sets.) Add marshmellows and chocolate chips. Spread into 8x8 pan and let set up. Cut into small squares and serve--especially to those skinny people who always complain about needing to lose a few pounds :)


  1. Mmmmm...sounds truely ono! I miss hawaii.

  2. Thanks a lot it has been a very good guide, now to make stuff is definitely simple utilizing your recommendation. Kudos

  3. I love the ono bark and came so close to duplicating it. Its been years now since i last made it and cannot remember my recipe

  4. Thanks it came out AMAZING and I have made it a couple times since I first checked the recipe out. :*)

  5. I also lived in Hawaii and enjoyed the ono bark on occasion. I make it every year as a Christmas treat. My recipe is all most identical except for larger quantity. We occasionally visit Hawaii and cannot find the candy store chain that made the ono bark so I am happy I was able to duplicate it.

  6. I live in Hawaii and I love the "ono bark"..Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory sold those, unfortunately the one that was in Waikele Outlet and Aloha Tower closed down, BUT there is a little shop in Pearlridge Downtown that sells the barks. It's located in front of Icing. They also sell an Oreo cookie bark, mint bark and some others I can't remeber. I am so excited to try this recipe as I have been craving this for sooo long! Thanks for sharing the recipe! :)


Comments?! Yes, please! I'll return the love.
