Halloween Candy Bark

Halloween Candy Bark RecipeToday 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.Halloween Candy Bark Recipe

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.Halloween Candy Bark 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.

    Remember back a few years ago when candy bark was pretty much just seen at Christmas and slathered with candy canes? I HATE peppermint and always wished other people would make bark at other times of the year! This Halloween bark was something I dreamed about! lol It looks so good d & not a candy can in sight! :D Stopping by from Marvelous Mondays! I’d also like to invite you to come link up with me at Tasty Tuesdays; I’m specifically looking for Halloween posts & this recipe would be perfect for our roundup!

      It is! We’ve bought for an army of trick-or-treaters the last two years, but we’ve had hardly any kids show up. So, I’ve had to get creative with all of the leftovers, and this is a great way to use some of it up. =)

    How exciting that you’re doing a cooking segment!
    I’ve never made candy bark but you make it look so easy. I adore the Halloween theme used to decorate it. :)
