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 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!
- 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.
This is one of those fun Halloween recipes that the kids can help with. What kid doesn't love homemade candy? They will have fun adding the toppings to the bark before the chocolate sets.
Melt the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water.
Spread onto sheet pan lined with foil
Add candies of your choice - I barely press them down with my hands just to be sure they stick
Place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to set.
Remove from refrigerator and let stand for about 5 minutes and break into pieces.
Store in refrigerator.
