Today is kind of a big day for me. Today, I’m going on a local TV show to do a cooking segment. I’m really excited and a little nervous, but mainly I’m excited! This Halloween Candy Bark is the recipe that I’ll be sharing on there.
This bark is a fun and easy way to make something festive for Halloween, but it doesn’t require any decorating skills. One of the great things about this recipe is how flexible it is. You can use pretty much any combination of chocolaty candies that you’d like to use. I went with a peanut/peanut butter theme, but, really, whatever works. Also, don’t be afraid of the pretzels. They add a nice crunch, and the little bit of salt helps to break up all of the sweetness. You could also use peanuts or any other chopped nut if you prefer. Regardless of what toppings you use, this is a great Halloween treat.
