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?
And it’s kind of ironic – I love Halloween, but I am such a chicken. I can’t watch scary movies – except for zombie ones, because zombies are NOT real – and I absolutely cannot go to haunted houses. Oh lord, no.
It must be the theatrics. I do love a good costume. The year I was Inigo Montoya might’ve been my best. “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya…”
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 this year. You can make this tasty Halloween chocolate bark in a few minutes and be the star of that Halloween party you are going to.
Reese’s Pieces and candy corn make for perfect Halloween colors. And I added peanuts to the candy corn portion to mimic the taste of that classic candy bar that my cousin Jennifer introduced me to when we were kids – a Payday!
