🎃Topping Ideas

It is easy to change up this recipe and add your favorite candies! Some other fun toppings are Halloween M&Ms, peanut butter cups, chopped-up candy bar pieces, edible candy eyeballs, cookie pieces, or mini marshmallows.

Dried fruit like cranberries or raisins makes an excellent addition. Or use potato chips or salty nuts like pistachios or peanuts instead of pretzels.

🥣How to Make Halloween Candy Bark

1. Melt Chocolate

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside. Then put the orange melts in a microwave-safe bowl and the white chocolate chips in a separate bowl.

Microwave the orange melts in 30-second intervals, stirring well after each interval until it is smooth and completely melted. Do the same thing with the bowl of white chocolate chips.

2. Spread Chocolate

Drop spoonfuls of the orange candy onto the prepared baking sheet. Then add the white melted chocolate in between. Use a spatula to spread the mixture into a thin layer on the cookie sheet. Use a knife to make swirls with the colors.
