Inevitably Halloween will bring a surplus of candy into your home so why not pick out a few of your favorites and make some Halloween Bark! It’s super easy to do and your kids will have so much creating their own chocolate concoctions. You will find many variations of this recipe online but they are all similar. All you need is a pan, some plain chocolate and assorted Halloween candy which can be anything from gummy worms to broken up bits of candy bar. I also like to add some spooky eye candy to my bark, it gives it a little extra Halloween flare!
For the chocolate, I like a nice bittersweet chocolate as it offsets the sweetness of the other candies that are mixed in but feel free to use whatever you have on hand. You can either melt down plain chocolate candy bars from your kids trick-or-treat bag or use a bag of chocolate chips, both will be perfect in this recipe. Once your chocolate is topped with all of the goodies and has hardened, use a knife to break it up and enjoy! Happy Halloween!!
- 3 cups of chocolate (dark, milk, bittersweet, etc)
- 2 – 2.5 cups of assorted Halloween candy
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat®.
Over a double boiler, melt down the chocolate until smooth.
Pour the chocolate onto the baking sheet and using a spatula, smooth it into an even layer about 1/4″ thick. Top the chocolate with the assorted Halloween candy.
Place the tray into the refrigerator for about 35-40 minutes or until the chocolate has fully hardened.
Slide the cold chocolate onto a cutting board and using a knife, chop it up into large, irregular pieces and serve. Store the bark in an airtight container in a cool place.
