The day for tricking and treating is upon us and it is pouring rain outdoors. My kids are so upset. I thought to cheer them up a bit and make some Halloween Bark!
This is literally one of the easiest recipes to throw together in moments. Most likely you will also have all the ingredients in your home already. You could begin with chocolate pieces (a bog of chips would work) or almond bark . . . this I always have in my house - it is VERY versatile. Grab some pretzels and whatever else your taste buds desire.
I have this great aversion to candy corn, so my Halloween bark will NOT be having any of this sweet sick candy tossed in it. We gathered up some pretzels, chocolate chips, tiny Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Peanut Butter M&Ms and chocolate cookies - the Halloween version naturally.
Just simply pour out your melted almond bark, spread it around and begin with one ingredient and place them around. You sort of have to work quickly because your chocolate is cooling off. Then gather up the next ingredient and place those in other areas. I tend to push down the larger pieces so they actually are firmly 'stuck' in the chocolate. Then pop it all in the freezer.
- 1 package chocolate Almond Bark
- 2 cups assorted candy, pretzels, cookies & chips
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Melt the almond bark in the microwave tray until smooth.
- Pour the chocolate onto the parchment paper and spread it around. Sprinkle the pretzels, cookies and candy on top of the chocolate. Then place the baking sheet in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes until the chocolate has fully hardened.
- Remove the bark from the freezer. Cut or break the bark into irregularly shaped pieces.
This was the perfect pick me up recipe for the kiddos today on this gloomy Halloween day! OR, this is the perfect way to get rid of any leftover Halloween candy - that is if you don't eat it all!
