See recipe card.
- White Candy Melts: These provide a creamy base for our bark. When melted, they create a velvety texture that pairs wonderfully with the other ingredients.
- Black Candy Melts: Offering a contrasting hue to the white, these melts bring a dark richness to our bark, making it visually appealing.
- Candy Corn: A Halloween staple, adding a sweet, tri-colored punch to our bark.
- If you don't have black candy melts, dark chocolate or chocolate almond bark can be a worthy replacement, though it might slightly alter the taste.
- For a nutty twist, sprinkle some crushed Reese’s peanut butter cups or Reese’s pieces over the melted chocolate before it sets.
- If you're aiming for a more vibrant color, substitute white candy melts with orange candy melts.
Ensure you have a good-quality parchment paper to lay your bark on. This makes the removal process a breeze. A simple offset spatula or the back of a spoon will help you spread the candy melt in an even layer. To break the bark once it's set, a sharp knife will come in handy.
STEP 1: Heat the candy melts as directed on the back of the bag. I heat mine on low mode for 1:30 and repeat this three times, then stir well. Place parchment paper on a small baking sheet. Pour out half of the white candy melts and spread with the back of a spoon.
STEP 2: Drizzle some black candy melts and swirl. Then drizzle more of each color with the spoon. Top with black and orange sprinkles.
STEP 3: Top with more black and orange sprinkles, candy corn, and candy eyes.
STEP 4: Let dry for about 30 minutes. Once hard break apart into medium pieces for serving.
