Who doesn’t LOVE Halloween candy!? If plain candy bars aren’t cutting it for your spooky party, now you can up your Halloween game with this quick, easy and ghoulish Halloween Candy Bark. The recipe is sweet and simple. Milk chocolate is melted and topped with bite size pieces of all your favorite Halloween candies. My favorite part? The candy eyeballs that seem to just stare at you!
This time of the year is hectic. With school starting for most just a month ago, and it seems like September/October are “back to everything months”. Halloween seems to creep up on us (see what I did there) and it easy to run out of time to make sweet treats. This bark takes minutes to make, then you just allow time for it to harden. No baking required!
3 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
2 cups assorted candy (I used M&M’s, candy corn, Cookies and Cream Hershey Bars and Kit-Kats)
Candy eyeballs (not required, but does make this bark pretty amazing)
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring until smooth.
- Pour the chocolate onto the parchment paper, and using a spatula, spread it into an even layer about 1/4-inch thick. Place candy on top of the chocolate then place the baking sheet in the refrigerator to chill for 30 to 45 minutes until the chocolate has fully hardened.
- Remove the bark from the refrigerator and carefully slide it onto a cutting board. Cut the bark into irregularly shaped pieces. Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container in a cool place.
