Sometimes these decisions change on a dime… a few times.

You are, are not, are, are not, are, are NOT, Are, ARE NOT, ARRRRRRE having a Halloween Party this year!

Halloween Bark Recipe

Good for you. When this sort of decision is made at the last-minute, QUICK and EASY are our two favorite words. And let’s throw in “cute” for good measure.

Candy Bark is one of my favorite go-to treats for any holiday because it takes only moments to make and disappears faster than a flying banshee.

This particular Bark Recipe is a festive way to celebrate the witching hour… or a resourceful method of using up your Halloween loot!

Simply melt and pour the chocolate onto wax paper, then drop your favorite Halloween candies, and candy bar pieces over the top. Allow it to dry and break into pieces. See? Quick and easy, perfect for you last-minute party animals!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Spooky Halloween Bark Recipe.
Servings: 12 +


  • 11 ounces milk chocolate chips
  • 11 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 3 candy bars large (or 12 mini candy bars) roughly chopped
  • 1 cup candy corns
  • 1 cup "spooky" candy eyeballs, bones, bugs...


  • Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
  • Pour the milk chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 60 seconds, then stir. Continue heating in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until the chocolate is smooth.
  • Pour the chocolate onto the prepared cookie sheet and smooth to the edges.
  • Repeat with the white chocolate. Then pour it on top of the milk chocolate. Swirl with a spatula.
  • Sprinkle the chopped candy bar over the chocolate. Then sprinkle the candy corns and the "spooky" candy on top.
  • Place in the fridge for 20 minutes—until hard. Then break into pieces and store in an airtight container.


Don't keep this is the fridge because chilling the chocolate too long causes it to get cloudy.

  4. This bark would make a kid out of anyone – such fun and so clever. The centerpiece ideas are similarly grand – they just celebrate Halloween and autumn.

  5. I think this is the best and most creative Halloween spread I’ve ever seen. I’m working from home today, and I think I can squeeze in some time to make the Halloween Bark. Thanks for sharing your site via Stumble Upon. Keep the great posts coming! I’m a new fan.

  7. This is awesome!! I’ll definitely have to try this next year.

    I would love for you to follow my new blog: http://allthingscheilsea.blogspot.com

    Happy Halloween!

  8. too cute! I’d never thought of making such things as a quick take along. LOVE that idea (with or without the skeleton!)

  9. I love this! Those feet sticking up – the hissing cat in the background – this is an awesome post – and if its last minute I am on the floor shocked because it came together so well!

  10. Where did you find the skeletal candy??

  11. I want to make the Glow Stick Lanterns for Halloween. Love the idea.

  12. I made something similar, but I didn’t get as creative as you… next time I’ll just copy your beautiful work!! ;)

  13. Ha..ha..bark with the bones is so spooky! And that purple wig too :)

  14. I love the bark and your last minute Halloween ideas! I hope you have a wonderful Halloween :)

  15. Your Halloween ideas are so good, they’re spooky! Love the hand emerging from the punch and the centrepiece is awesome.

  16. This bark looks like a ball to make. My kids would love helping me with this. Thanks so much for featuring my mummy cookies.

  17. These treats are awesome! Love the hands poking out!! Just linked up my pumpkin pie :)

  18. I love candy bark too! I’ve never made it with candy corn though…what an awesome color addition :)

  19. What a great idea for a quick and easy Halloween treat! Just like everyone else said, the cat is extremely freaky!

  20. This is pretty much the coolest (and spookiest) bark I have seen! I LOVE it!

  21. I love the bark. There is a whole lot of candy going on there. I think my teeth are already rotting. Love it!

  22. So cute! I’m always needing last minute ideas!!

  23. I love the skeleton hands coming out of the bark. So creative! I also happen to be addicted severely to candy corn. :) Great idea!

  24. Oh my goodness, I LOVE this! I don’t think I would have ever thought of something so clever!

  25. That cat did freak me out.. Not the limbs, nope. Those are so cute :D

  26. Now there’s a bark I’d bite! GREG

  27. Omg Really Spooky …Fabulous :)

  28. love it! this is certainly the spookiest bark i’ve ever seen. i’m impressed with the plethora of creepy candy you found…we don’t seem to have a lot of fun halloween candy in the stores this year near me…jealous of those little bones! amazing.

  29. Oh, Sommer, your bark looks fabulous!! And I zeroed in on the butterfinger bits…YUM!

  30. What a great idea! I love the bones! :)

  31. Chocolate with candy embedded into it is my kind of treat! Yes, I could eat that whooooole pan.

  32. That cat seriously freaks me out.
    Good thing I could just shove handfuls of this bark in my face to forget it!

  33. I love the shot with the skeleton laying on the table! Maybe he ate too much candy :) Love this idea – makes me wish for little kids again. We always had a Halloween theme birthday party for my son (birthday 10/21) but he just turned 25 so I don’t think he wants a dress up party anymore. Makes me sad :(

  40. That purple wig made me jump.

    The eyes though were totally fine.
