This Halloween bark uses white and milk chocolate and is loaded with Halloween shaped gummy sweets, marshmallows and tons of Autumn coloured sprinkles! No-bake and fun to make, the kids (and adults!) will just love this recipe!
Ohmygod you see those sweets that look like brains?
My boyfriend thought it would be fun to give it to me without telling me that when you bite into it it explodes in your mouth!
Sure, it was fruity, but I was like “eurghhhhhh what IS that?!”
I mean, I feel like it’s because they actually looked like brains, otherwise I probably would have just been like “mmm they have a filling”
OH thought it was utterly hilarious of course…
Anyways, after that experience I decided that I needed to make some Halloween bark.
I just love bark as it’s so simple to make, you can make any combination you want and it’s kid friendly and fun!
I used a mixture of chocolate, marshmallows, gummy sweets, sprinkles and Oreo’s with some milk chocolate covered honeycomb pieces to add a little crunch!
If you read Tuesday’s post you’ll know our shops have gone Christmas crazy already. However, I finally found some Halloween sweets among all the Christmas stuff in Marks and Spencer!
They had skull and bone marshmallows, body parts and scaredy cat gummy sweets and a load of other spooky shaped chocolates! I got the sprinkles last year at TK Maxx and have been desperate to use them!!
Autumn is by far my favourite season, I love the cold nights where I can snuggle up with a blanket and hot chocolate, I love the food – pies, stews, soups – pure comfort!
Also the colours are beautiful! Since I’m as white as a ghost, the pale colours of Summer usually make me look either naked or dead, so the dark greens and reds of Autumn suit me much better! 🙂
Oh yea, and I have a complete love affair with boots, I don’t even know how many pairs I have, so when it’s finally cold enough to get them out I’m just like “YAY!” 😀
So, this bark. You could honestly throw any topping you like at it! I decided to mix white and milk chocolate so you got the creamy, vanilla taste of the white and then the smooth, milk to ramp up the chocolate factor!
The sprinkles add colour and I mean, who doesn’t love sprinkles? OK, don’t answer that – if you don’t I’m afraid we can’t be friends.
Joking. Of course we can. (But I will think you’re weird ;))
I love all the flavours of the gummy sweets with the chocolate, the Oreo’s add a richer flavour, which compliments all the sweets – obviously you can substitute a different Oreo flavour – we just don’t get any here!
I would say one thing, if you don’t like really sweet things, then you probably won’t like this! But since I can basically bite into pure sugar, it’s fabulous!
(Have you had Cadbury’s Marvellous mix-ups with Maynards sweets? If not, you need to. Literally life-changing.)
I still feel like the UK is wayyyyyy behind the US in terms of seasonal candy/chocolate. We don’t get ANY of the cool Oreo flavours, no pumpkin spice, peanut butter, golden… nothing, just normal ones 🙁
We don’t get candy corn – I see it absolutely everywhere and read how people have a love/hate relationship with it and I’m dying to try it for myself!
And M&M’s? Just peanut, milk and dark here. It’s ridiculous.
Seriously, I’m going to come to the US one day with the biggest empty suitcase. I don’t even care that most people probably get clothes to bring back, I will be filling that bad boy with all the sweets we don’t get here!
Pretty sure I’ll look like Willy Wonka going through the airport.
Anyways, you should go make this bark. It’s easy, fun and soooo tasty! I completely admit I probably love this more than kids, it’s so more-ish!
