Chocolate Halloween Bark

Here is another Halloween treat that is fun to make and easy.

Line an baking pan or cookie sheet with parchment paper.

16 oz of semi-sweet chocolate
1 cup of salted peanuts
1 cup of candy corn
1 cup of broken pretzels
1 cup of Halloween colored M & Ms
16 oz. of white chocolate

Place the semi sweet chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water. Heat on low until the chocolate is melted (you can also use the microwave method of 30 seconds, stir, another 30 seconds, stir). Pour the melted chocolate into parchment lined pan. Spread chocolate until smooth.

In another bowl mix the peanuts, candy corn, pretzels and M & M’s well.  Sprinkle them over the dark chocolate bark before it hardens.  Let it harden before applying the white chocolate.  You can place it in the freezer if you want to speed up the process.

Place white chocolate in a large saucepan and heat it until  melted. Put the melted chocolate in a small baggie.
Cut a small tip in the baggie corner and drizzle the white chocolate back and forth over the chocolate bark. 

Once it has cooled and hardened break it up into pieces. 

Variation – It is your bark, so you can add any variation you would like.  You can melt caramels and drizzle the melted caramel over the bark or chop your favorite candy bars up that you like to give out on Halloween. 

Make a pumpkin field with Halloween pumpkin candy, sprinkle with crushed chocolate cookies for dirt and add a drop of green food coloring to the melted white chocolate and drizzle green vines over the pumpkins.

Make a grave yard with cookies saying RIP and decorate with pumpkins and green white chocolate.  Get creative.  It is a good project to make with the kids.  Enjoy.

Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
