Halloween Candy Bark

Are you ready for candy?  Halloween is less than two weeks away.  I know my kids are counting down to the big day.  They can’t wait for trick-or-treating.  So, if you are like them than here is a perfect treat.  Talk about chocolate.  This candy bark has tons of it.  If you are in need of a quick gift for a teacher, friend, neighbor then look no further.  This will make enough to give away and still have some left.  {I won’t judge you if you eat it for breakfast.}

Another great time to make this is after the trick-or-treating.  Use up all that candy your kids bring home. They will probably have enough candy in their bags to make several batches of bark.  The fun thing is you can experiment with this.  Swap out one candy for another-use what you have.  The recipe is just what I used but you could make this totally your own.

I know it sounds like a lot of chocolate, and let’s be real, it is a lot.  But using the bittersweet chocolate for a base and having the peanut butter candies and salty pretzels really balances the whole thing out.  It is very addicting…

Halloween Candy Bark

3 cups bittersweet chocolate chips

8 fun size Butterfinger candy bars

6 fun size Heath candy bars

8 Reeses peanut butter cups

1/3 cup candy corn

1/3 cup Reeses Pieces

10 mini pretzel twists, broken (about 1/3 cup pretzel pieces

1/3 cup honey roasted peanuts

1/2 cup white chocolate chips


Line baking sheet with foil.  Cut Butterfingers into 4 pieces, Heath bars into 6 pieces and Reeses peanut butter cups into 8 wedges.


In a medium saucepan, melt bittersweet chocolate chips over low heat until melted and warm.  Stir frequently to avoid burning chocolate.  Pour  chocolate onto foil; spread to 1/4-inch thickness.  Sprinkle with candies, peanuts, and pretzels making  sure all pieces touch melted chocolate to adhere.  Place chocolate in fridge and cool for 30 minutes.

Put white chocolate in small saucepan. Stir constantly  over very low heat until chocolate is melted. (This can also be done in the microwave, just be sure to stir every 10-15 seconds.)  Remove  from heat. Dip spoon into chocolate; wave from side to side over bark, creating  zigzag lines.

Chill bark until firm, 30 minutes.  Break into irregular pieces.

Wrap some of this up and give it away before you eat the entire pan.  Place the candy into a tin, wrap it in cellophane, a goody bag, or whatever you like to use and attach a cute tag.  You can download our Halloween tags here and another one here.
