This chocolate bark is an easy Halloween recipe! A perfect homemade candy recipe for school parties and office treats! Trick or treaters young and old will love it, and you can make it on one sheet pan for easy cleanup.
Fall is my favorite. And Fall means Halloween. And chocolate. And pretty colors on the trees. And most of all, Fall means candy corn. Does anyone eat it at any other time of year? Do they even sell it the other months of the year?
So let's go back to the days when people gave out homemade candy to trick or treaters, but we can just keep it for ourselves.
You can make this tasty Halloween chocolate bark in a few minutes and it will be the star of that Halloween party you are going to. You'll want to make these Pumpkin Brownies to take along, too!
Ingredients you'll need
- Chocolate chips: I like bittersweet the best, but for the kids you might want to use semi sweet or even milk chocolate.
- Reeses pieces, candy corn, peanuts: You can really use any of your favorite Halloween candy and nuts on these. The candy corn and peanut combo tastes like a Butterfinger to amp up the nostalgia.
