There are no tricks to make this Easy Halloween Candy Bark. It's a frightfully fun treat to eat and share with little ghouls and goblins everywhere!
Every year, we like to experiment with making new treats for Halloween. The kids and I made some seriously adorable Halloween marshmallow pops last year that were almost too cute to eat. We also made a batch of candy-coated Halloween pretzels.
So for this year's treat, we decided to make some fun Halloween candy bark. We've made peppermint bark for Christmas and red, white and blue bark for the Fourth of July. It's fun, festive and it's so simple.
For this bark, we used semi sweet chocolate chips and two different colors of candy coating. The kids voted on using bright green and orange candy coating, so those are the colors we went with. I also bought some Halloween-themed candies and sprinkles to add to the top. I wanted to add some candy eyeballs, but I couldn't find any in the stores.
Maybe next year I should start buying all my supplies in August!
Basically, all you have to do is melt different types of chocolate and swirl them together to form layers and patterns. We set the chocolate layer down first, and then we used a toothpick to swirl the other two colors in with the chocolate.
You can add flavorings, sprinkles, candy or pretty much whatever you want. When the bark firms up, it's ready to eat. How easy is that?!
