This post and recipe was created for #HalloweenTreatsWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.
If you’re like me and prefer silly and cute Halloween-themed treats over anything truly spooky or gory, this Monster Bark with candy eyeballs is for you!
This Monster Bark with candy eyeballs makes it so easy! It’s the perfect Halloween treat for any Halloween party – even classroom parties – because it’s silly and fun instead of creepy!
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.
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.
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!
