What You Need to Make this Halloween White Chocolate Candy Bark
It’s so easy to make Halloween white chocolate candy bark and it’s fun as well. You are going to need a pound of white chocolate and whichever add-ins you want to use. Mini pretzels, broken Oreos, candy corn, Halloween coloured sprinkles, and M&M candies or Skittles are great additions. Don’t forget the Halloween sprinkles and googly monster eyes!
You can take your pick from these or use them all! There’s really no such thing as too many candies when making Halloween white chocolate candy bark!
How to Make this DIY Halloween Candy
I meant it when I said this was easy! You don’t even have to weigh or measure anything really. I tend to eyeball it. So the first thing to do is melt the chocolate in a pan. You just want it melted not molten, so keep the heat right down and stir it often.
While it’s melting, spread your add-in candies, pretzels, cookie crumbles, whatever you are using, over a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. You should use a rimmed cookie sheet so excess melted chocolate doesn’t drip off the sides.
Now pour the melted chocolate all over the mixture, using a spatula to ensure it’s evenly spread. While the bark is still warm and not set yet, you can add more candies, sprinkles or whatever you want to the side that’s facing upwards. Any chocolate left in the pan can be warmed up until it melts and then drizzled over the Halloween white chocolate candy bark.
I love to make this Halloween treat with googly monster eyes. They’re great to have because there are many DIY Halloween candy recipes you can use them on.
Easy Candy Bark Recipe Variations
You can change this up as much as you like. You don’t even have to use white chocolate. Dark chocolate or semisweet chocolate would work instead. Alternatively you could melt two kinds of chocolate in separate pans and pour them both over the candies. That way you add another flavour as well as more colour.
I like to use chocolate M&Ms since they’re smaller. The peanut ones are also good but they always seem to be different sizes. Skittles would work too if you don’t mind the chewiness.
How to Serve Candy Bark
Break this Halloween treat with googly monster eyes into pieces to serve. The pieces in no way have to be the same shape or size. However they break is fine! Add this Halloween bark recipe to your Halloween table and it will disappear fast!
Unlike some other Halloween recipes, this one isn’t strictly for Halloween. It’s a really good way to use up leftover Halloween candies. So if there are still plenty of treats left over, you can use them to make this Halloween treat with googly monster eyes. So what if it’s November already?
Why is It Called Bark Anyway?
Peppermint bark is one of the most popular kinds of bark. It is made by pouring melted chocolate over crushed hard mints. After it sets and is broken up, the uneven, pitted surface looks like tree bark. Bark dates back to the 1960s in Florida, or at least that’s the earliest record of this sweet treat.
An easy candy bark recipe is always worth having up your sleeve. It’s so simple that even complete beginners will be able to make it with ease. You don’t even need any decorating skills. Simply melt chocolate in a pan and pour it over candies, pretzels, cookie crumbles, or whatever you want to add. It is so easy to make this Halloween white chocolate candy bark your own.
Around Christmas I always make bark with cranberries and pistachios – it is amazing at Christmas or any time of the year.
You can use the same ingredients as me or you can mix it up. What about yogurt-covered raisins or broken wafers? Marshmallows? Chopped mixed nuts? Candy foam ghosts? Hershey’s tombstone mini candy bars? Reese’s seasonal ghosts and pumpkins?
Really just about anything goes! I especially love the salty contrast from pretzels in my easy candy bark recipe and nearly always include them. Let me know what you add to your Halloween white chocolate candy bark.
