Does anyone feel like they fell asleep in August and woke up to what is now almost Halloween? So crazy! After looking at the calendar and realizing the month is slipping away I decided it was definitely time to do some Halloween treat-making before it becomes unacceptable to put eye ball sprinkles on my baked goods.
So, today I am sharing with you a tutorial for making spooky layered Halloween bark! This is such a great recipe to make because it is totally adaptable and easy, making it super fun to get little hands involved! My kids loved spreading the chocolate and dumping on the sprinkles! Plus, you can throw this together with whatever you have on-hand, since pretty much anything goes! Here is how you make it:
Spooky Layered Halloween Bark
- 8 oz Orange Melting Chocolate
- 8 oz Purple Melting Chocolate
- 8 oz Cocoa Melting Chocolate
- Candy eyes
- Candy pieces
- Wax paper
1. Prepare a flat surface with wax paper. In separate bowls, melt each of the colors according to package directions. For instance, for me this meant melting in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each increment until completely melted.
2. Beginning with one color of chocolate, spread all but a couple of tablespoons of over the wax paper in a thin layer, making about a 9×13 inch rectangle. Repeat this process with all colors until all three layers have been spread and layered on each other.
3. Using the remaining tablespoons of each chocolate, spoon lines of the chocolate on the bark. Using a toothpick or skewer, drag the dollops through the top layer to make a marbled design.
4. Top the bark with sprinkles, candy eyes, and candy pieces. Let set until completely hardened then cut into pieces with knife.
How easy was that!? Plus, this bark is so cute and SO tasty and there are so many different variations you can take to make it your own! I love the idea of adding crunched up Oreos next time, or maybe some pretzel pieces for some salty crunch! The possibilities are endless, and the result will delight anyone you share it with.
Don’t you love seeing those layers of colors after you cut into it? This recipe would be perfect to package up and give to friends as a spooky Halloween treat. Plus, I’m already thinking of the ways I can alter the toppings to make bark for the next big holidays! So much fun!
