Halloween Bark is easy to scare up and a fun no-bake treat for all your ghouls and goblins!
More of a procedure than a recipe, you can adapt this sweet treat to your little ghouls and goblins’ taste, customizing the candy, sprinkles and ingredients. Best of all, no cauldron required to whip up a batch of Halloween bark for this sweet treat, which is ready in 30 minutes, the time it take for the candy coating to set.
In addition to your candy and sprinkles, you’ll need graham crackers and candy coating or almond bark. You can find almond bark on the baking aisle near the chocolate chips. Substitute white chocolate chips or candy melts for almond bark if you prefer. I like the CandiQuik brand for the convenience of the disposable, microwaveable tray, but any brand will work.
16-ounce package vanilla-flavored candy coating/ almond bark
Chocolate graham crackers
Candy Corn, M&M’s and/or candy of choice
Utz Halloween Bats & Jacks Pretzels, found at Walmart
Line a *rimmed baking sheet with wax or parchment paper so paper extends over the edges of the pan. Arrange the graham crackers so that they’re butted up against one another, piecing together as needed to fill the bottom of your pan. Melt almond bark according to package directions. Pour melted almond bark over the top of graham crackers, spreading it evenly over the surface.
Add your candy and sprinkles to the top while your almond bark is warm. Lightly press the larger pieces of candy and pretzels into melted almond bark to make sure they’re anchored. Allow to cool until set, about 30 minutes.
When bark is set, use the edges of the paper to remove bark from sheet pan and transfer to cutting board. Use the tip of a knife to break/cut bark into pieces.
*I used an 11 x 15 rimmed baking sheet. Adjust quantity of ingredients for a larger or smaller baking sheet as needed.
Wrap bark in cellophane bags or add paper shred to mini pails for party favors. I found these mini metal Halloween treat pails at the Dollar Spot at Target, a favorite haunt.
