    Halloween Bark Recipe

    I’ve mentioned this before but I am definitely not your typical Halloween fan. Honestly, I’m not much of a Halloween fan at all.

    Blood, guts, and scary things just really don’t do it for me. Scary movies are not my thing and neither are the creepy Halloween treats meant to mimic blood or fingers or any other creepy things.

    I’m much more of a cute and sweet Halloween person. Think the cartoon Casper the Ghost and pumpkins with silly faces. That’s my idea of how to celebrate Halloween.

    So, naturally, any Halloween treats I make tend to follow that same pattern – cute and silly, following the color scheme of Halloween more than anything else.

    Make it a Monster!

    With this Monster Bark, I decided to take the silly route to make a simple Halloween dessert. It’s festive and fun and kids love it, especially the candy eyeballs. Monster Bark is simply chocolate bark with monster eyes.

    Wondering how to make chocolate bark? It is the easiest thing ever. Buy a pack of chocolate (white, milk, whatever you prefer) and melt it according to the instructions on the back.

    This is usually something like microwaving for 30 seconds, stirring, and repeating the process until it’s completely melted.

    Pour the melted chocolate onto parchment paper, chill until the chocolate is set, cut or break into pieces and you’re good to go!

    Making this Monster Bark follows the same process, just with the fun additions of monster eyes and red sprinkles for a silly melted monster look.

    No Bake and No Cook

    Monster Bark is quick and easy to make, which means it’s ideal for last minute parties, but it’s also a great treat for kids. They love the googly eyes!

    I think it would make a great classroom Halloween party dessert.

    White Chocolate

    White chocolate is a sweet confection made from cocoa butter (not actual cocoa beans), sugar, milk solids and lecithin, a fatty emulsifier that binds it. It is usually a pale ivory color opposed to stark white because cocoa butter is also a cream color.

    Feel free to substitute milk chocolate or dark chocolate, but be mindful that orange food coloring won’t show up at all or very little. Instead use festive sprinkles and maybe swirl in white chocolate.
