It’s HALLOWEEEEN! Which means – CANDY! There’s no denying that October 31st is the most legit reason to just eat candy all day. After coming home when I was younger from trick or treating with pillowcases full of candy, I remember dumping it all on the floor and separating each type into separate piles. Organizing my candy…is this normal? I’m most definitely a chocolate person too. Anything sour and gummy you can have from my pile.
This massive amount of candy calls to have some fun with it to give away or keep for yourself! Chocolate Halloween Bark is candy, made out of candy. If it wasn’t obvious by now, this is a cheat meal/treat/snack…
The awesome thing about chocolate bark is that there’s endless different combinations that you can make (and you don’t need to be a baker to do this whatsoever). You can make it for any holiday or occasion too just by using colors or flavors specific to what you want. For Christmas try white chocolate with dried cranberries & pistachios! Birthday parties you can use specific colored chocolate candies to really get decorative.
Okay, so the fun part about this is that you’re just decorating chocolate and then it hardens in the fridge. No oven or stove necessary.
To start, the candy I used was all different kinds of chocolate candy for Halloween. So – Kit Kats, Snickers, Twix, Milky Way, M&Ms, Reece’s, and I even threw in some pecans because there was half a bag left in the pantry and adding something salty to the mix will help keep this from being a sugar overload. You’ll need way less of everything than you think, so start with only a few of each.
Chop everything up just a little first. Then heat the two bags of chocolate chips together in a microwave safe bowl for 30 second intervals. Stir in between and be sure to not burn the chocolate.
Next, on a baking sheet, lay out some parchment paper. Spread the melted chocolate out all over.
However you want to do this next part is up to you – decorate with all your different candies and pieces.
I also topped mine with some coarse sea salt flakes – again to balance all this super sweet candy.
Just for fun, I then melted some white chocolate and drizzled it all over with a spoon. Look how cool! Next – refrigerate this for a couple hour. Break into large sections, and then more manageable pieces.
