All Bark, No Bite: (Super Delicious) Halloween Candy Bark Recipe 2 Ways

A salty sweet bark recipe for Halloween (and fall). This recipe is so good! And only take s a few minutes to make.

We had a whole bunch of leftover Halloween candy sitting around the studio last week, so I figured I might as well make some kitchen sink Halloween bark to pass the time. And wanted to share it with you too, just in case you need another reason to eat candy this time or year.

This would be a good one to bookmark for after Halloween actually hits and you have a pillowcase full of candy (or a plastic pumpkin container, depending on how you do things) to get rid of. The basic gist involves just kind of tossing all your Halloween candy into melted chocolate (or almond bark, if you prefer), but I did come up with two variations for an actually ‘recipe’ if you’re curious to know what I thought tasted the best. Hint: They both involve tossing some pretzels into the mix…

Halloween Candy Bark Recipe (Two Ways)

A salty sweet bark recipe for Halloween (and fall). This recipe is so good! And only takes a few minutes to make.

Ingredients for Bark #1:

– 3 to 5 large handfuls of candy corn
– 5 large handfuls of pretzels, that are then crushed into smaller pieces
– 1 12-16 oz bag of chocolate chips or almond bark (I went with vanilla)

This is a bark I could eat year round (or at least through the rest of fall). If you like candy corn, which I realize isn’t for everyone, you’d love this. And the pretzels add a really nice salty crunch. Highly recommend it.

Ingredients for Bark #2 (this is more in the kitchen sink realm):

– 3 to 5 candy corn
– 4 to 5 handfuls of crushed up pretzels
– 5 to 7 gummy Halloween ‘teeth’
– 1 large handful of banana runts
– purple sugar sprinkles
– 1 12-16 oz bag of chocolate chips or 1 lb of vanilla almond bark (that’s what I went with)

This was a pretty good combo too, even though it sounds really weird. The odd parts of this mix (gummy teeth and banana runts) actually worked pretty well to provide a little bit of a different taste and consistency overall.

If you’re making one of these barks BEFORE Halloween, this one is definitely far more festive and fun.

Alright, so now that you have the ingredients list, how do you make these things?

It’s super easy! Just melt the chocolate or almond bark in the microwave (30 second intervals until completely melted, stirring in between each interval). Then mix in 1/2 to 3/4 of the other ingredients and stir into the melted chocolate. Pour onto alined baking sheet (or in my case, a large paper plate to make it even easier). Wait for the chocolate or almond bark to completely harden. Break up into pieces and enjoy. That’s it!

So, those are the two options, if I could only choose 1, the bark with the fewer ingredients is my fave. But they’re both really good. And option #2 is much more Halloween-y if you’re throwing a party between now and then.

Think you’ll give one of these barks a try? What else would you throw into these bark recipes? Any other candy favorites you’d add in?
