Chocolate — the gift that keeps on giving! This Festive Halloween Party Food I have today is so easy— known as Halloween Bark, it will be your go to for a quick and easy sweet treat!
I know you love chocolate from all the love our Peanut Clusters get— this bark is similar to that recipe in just how easy it is to make and how few ingredients you need to make it!
Halloween bark can be made in 15 minutes. Melted chocolate then dotted with your favorite halloween decorative candies. For real— its that easy to make! The hardest part about this recipe is letting it set up so it hardens and isn’t melting all over your hands!
This recipe is a classic recipe that we often serve at the holidays (Christmas especially) They are fun to make and you can tie them up in small bags as take home treats after your party. They are also great to drop off at the neighbors.
The best part about this recipe is that it’s totally customizable. You can use whatever candy you have and things you love
I’m super excited to be a part of #HalloweenTreatsWeek again this year! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.”
The best part of #halloweentreatsweek? You get all the treats! Be sure and scroll down to see the big giveaway that we are having! So many fun prizes!
- Chocolate (I love dark chocolate, but any will do!)
- Colored Sprinkles
- Pumpkin Candies
- Candy Corn
- M & M’s
- Reeces Peanut Butter Cup Minis
- Candy eyeballs
These are the ingredients I used, but if you want pretzels in your bark, add them. If you like nuts in your chocolate, you can add those. Any candy you like? Broken up candy bars? Junior mints… this candy is totally up to you.
This recipe is a great one to use up leftover candy too! After halloween, make this and hand it out at work! They will LOVE you!
How to Make it
- Use a microwave-safe bowl and add chocolate to it. You’ll microwave it on high for 30 seconds at a time stirring in between to help the melting.
- Don’t skip the parchment paper step. It makes it easy to lift out the sheet of chocolate after it hardens to break up.
- Press in your favorite candies.
- Want fun looking textures… use some of the melted chocolate to attach eye candies to the top of a peanut butter cup. It will add depth to your candy!
- I added colored frosting around the eyes for added color — but if you want to save money, you can just use the melted chocolate to attach the eye candies.
- You’ll want to let the bark set for at least 30 minutes before breaking it up into smaller pieces.

- 1 pound Almond Bark or Chocolate (milk or dark)
- 1/2 Cup M & M's
- 1/2 Cup Candy Corn kernels
- 16 eye candies
- 12 mini peanut butter cups
- hand full of colored sprinkles
- Break up the almond bark or cut up the chocolate into small pieces and place it into a microwave-safe bowl.
- Microwave on high for 30 seconds, then take out and stir. Repeat until all of the chocolate is melted.
- Take the candy eyes and use a dab of melted chocolate to attach them to the peanut butter cups.
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Pour the melted chocolate onto the center of the parchment paper. Then, using a spatula spread out the chocolate to about 1/4 inch thickness. Moving quickly, before the chocolate starts to harden sprinkle all of the candies and sprinkles over the bark.
- Allow the bark to harden for about 30 minutes.
- Then lift the parchment paper out and gently break up the bark into smaller pieces.
- Store in an airtight container or place a couple of pieces in a plastic bag that you can tie to seal to hand out as treats.
- This will keep for quite a while if stored properly. I usually make it a week ahead of time to take the pressure off the day of the party.
