Halloween Candy Bark is easy and fun to make! Use your favorite candies and sprinkles to make this festive treat.
Halloween is still more than a month away but who cares, right!? The Halloween candy is out in the stores so I think it makes it ok to go ahead and start cooking up some fun treats with the kids. This candy bark recipe is for all of you with a super sweet tooth like me or if you just enjoy making pretty, festive food. Candy bark is so great because you can really personalize it and the kids have so much fun sprinkling all of the candies and cookies.
The key to candy bark is the chocolate. For mine, I used a double boiler, which is just a fancy term for a glass bowl sitting on top of a small pot filled with boiling water. Take a small pot and fill with about 1 inch of water and boil it over medium heat. Put a small glass bowl on top of the pot and then place the chocolate in the bowl. Keep stirring the chocolate until it melts. Make sure not to overcook the chocolate or it will burn.
If you melt your chocolate in the microwave, use 50% power and heat in 30 second intervals. Stir chocolate in between intervals. Once the chocolate is melted and poured on the cookie sheet the fun begins. Take out all of those cute sprinkles, candies, pretzels, and cookies and sprinkle away. I found these spooky skull sprinkles from Wilton and of course you can’t have Halloween bark without candy corn!
