Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, ‘Never take candy from strangers.’ And then they dressed me up and said, ‘Go beg for it.’ I didn’t know what to do. I’d knock on peoples doors and go, ‘Trick or Treat.’ ‘No thank you.’
I couldn’t help laugh when I read this quote, this is the epitome of every parents nightmare matched with every kids candy loving desires.
With October 31st less than two weeks away I thought this #trickortreatthursday should involve a treat that both parents and kids could enjoy, Chocolate Candy Bark!
There is never a season that candy bark doesn’t go well with. You may remember the Easter Chocolate Bark we made in April, it was a fun way to celebrate the holiday with a treat everyone could enjoy. This Halloween Chocolate Candy Bark is no different. It is creepy, fun for kids & gives you all the chocolate feels you desire in a treat!
How to make this Halloween Chocolate Candy Bark:
Making this candy bark is incredibly simple & is a fun activity to do with your friends or children to prepare for the holiday.
First, you need to make the base of the bark. You do this by combining the white chocolate chips with coconut oil. Then you microwave the chips in 30 second intervals until the chocolate is completely melted.
When the chocolate is melted you will want to separate out a small amount of chocolate into a smaller bowl for the orange layer. After you have separated the chocolate, add 6 drops of red and yellow food coloring into the bowl. Mix well to combine, a light orange color will be created.
Onto a piece of wax paper, pour out your melted white chocolate. Spread it out until it is smooth. Next add your orange chocolate into large blobs on top of the white chocolate.
Taking a stick or spoon, stir a design into your chocolate bark.
Next, begin to add on your spooky candy treats.
I used candy corn, candy eyes, marshmallows, halloween “sprinkles” and broken pieces of kit-kats/whoppers/hershey’s. Spread them all out across the bark. When you are finished, place the chocolate bark into the refrigerator to set.
When your bark has set, carefully break the candy into large pieces. And voila, you are done!
Halloween Chocolate Candy Bark is the perfect addition to any holiday party, makes a great treat for friends and is a great “just because” treat. You won’t regret making this spooky treat!
