Halloween Candy Bark #ChocolateParty

Halloween Candy Bark is the perfect use for any leftover candy after your trick-or-treaters come to visit! 

Halloween Candy Bark It’s October! Do you know what that means? Halloween candy is out in full force in all the stores just begging you to buy giant bags of your favorite candy bars in miniature forms.  Not to mention candy corn and Reese’s pumpkins.  It might just be the best time of year for a chocoholic. 

Speaking of chocolate, this is my first #chocolateparty – a fabulous group created by Roxana’s Home Baking.   Our theme for October? Yup, you guessed it chocolate and candy!

I’m not saying you HAVE to wait until after Halloween to make this bark.  By all means, go and buy up all the good stuff now to make for any celebrations you have coming up.  However if you feel like looting your kids stash or hoarding some of the candy you give out just to make this, I wouldn’t fault you.  After all as a kid I totally swapped out the candy I didn’t like when I went trick or treating for whatever my parents were handing out. 😉

Chocolate bark is incredibly easy to put together - when choosing the chocolate as your base, make sure you use bars and not chocolate chips as they contain stabilizers that will effect the end product.

Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 12oz dark chocolate bars - about 72% cacao such as Ghiradelli Intense Dark
  • 2 cups miniature candy bars, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin spice Hershey Kisses, chopped
  • 1 cup pretzel M&M's
  • 1/2 cup candy corn or autumn mix, chopped

Instructions

  1. Line a half sheet baking sheet with parchment paper (about 10X10 inches)
  2. In a double boiler melt the chocolate bars until smooth and pour the chocolate in the center of the parchment paper.
  3. With a spatula, spread the chocolate out into a even layer to the edges of the parchment paper.
  4. Top with the assorted candy selection and set aside to cool and set for a few hours. If it happens to be a humid day, you can speed up the setting process by placing the bark in your freezer for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove and break into pieces.
  6. Store in an airtight container and keep in your fridge if it is warm or humid

    Every year, I get overly excited about trick-or-treaters, and I buy too much candy and then we get like, 4. In other words, there is always a glut of candy leftover- so this would be the perfect way to use it all up!

    I’ve clicked on the photo to your post in the Linky Link and I feel like I’ve entered Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory: Cheery colors and comforting chocolates at every turn =)

    Brilliant advice about using a luscious dark Ghirardelli to counterbalance the sweeter chocolates.

    No comment on how much on sale Halloween candy I’ve bought and eaten so far this month. But…some of it should definitely be turned into this bark. So I can get it ALL in one bite!
