Look at this trashy sweet and salty Halloween bark. So yummy, so crunchy, so sweet, and so perfect to take to a party, especially if there are kids around. It won’t last long around anyone.
You can substitute pretty much any kind of candy as toppings, and any kind of thin cracker-y type of deal for the base. A salty cracker like Saltines or matzo would be awesome. I had graham crackers available, so in they went as a sweeter base.
You don’t even really need a solid base for bark generally, but I wanted a little more stability this time around.
For a healthier version with an added boost of Greek yogurt-infused protein, check out this goji berry and pumpkin seed greek yogurt bark. But we’re going hardcore Halloween mode with real, live candy:
- 12 graham crackers
- 1 cup pretzels, broken into pieces
- 1 cup candy corn (or any Halloween candy/sprinkles of your choice)
- 16 oz milk or dark chocolate chips (I used sugar free)
- 8 oz white chocolate chips or almond bark
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- Lay out graham crackers on a parchment-lined pan.
- Melt milk or dark chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave in intervals of 30 seconds on high, stirring frequently.
- Evenly spread the melted chocolate over the graham cracker base.
- Top with your choice of broken-up candy, pretzels, and sprinkles.
- Melt the white chocolate the same way you melted the milk chocolate. Mix with room temperature coconut oil until combined.
- Use a fork to splatter white chocolate on top of the bark.
- Chill in the refrigerator for a few hours before breaking up with a large knife and serving.
