Making chocolate bark at home is so easy.
It takes minutes to create an entire tray of this salty and sweet Halloween bark filled with candy corn, peanuts, caramel, and Reese’s Pieces.
Did you know that candy corn mixed with peanuts tastes like a PayDay Candy Bar?
I wanted to make some chocolate bark for our Halloween party and thought it would be fun to toss in candy corn and peanuts along with caramel and Reese’s Pieces.
This is the perfect last-minute dessert to make for Halloween. It couldn’t be easier to make.
Sweet and Salty Halloween Bark
12 ounces White Candy Melts
1 cup peanuts
3/4 cup candy corn
3/4 cup Reese’s Pieces
1/2 cup caramel bits
12 Dark Cocoa Candy Melt Wafers (1 ounce)
Step 1 – Melt the candy melts and combine the candy and nuts.
- Pour white candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl.
- Heat on high for 40 seconds. Remove and stir.
- Heat on high for 30 seconds, then stir. Let sit for 2 minutes, then stir again vigorously. If not melted, heat on high for 10-second increments, stirring after each, until melted.
- Melt dark cocoa candy melts on high for 10-second increments, stirring after each until melted.
- Combine peanuts, candy corn, Reese’s Pieces, and caramel bits.
- Reserve 3/4 of a cup to sprinkle on top of the bark.
Step 2 – Mix the nuts and candy with the white chocolate.
- Pour candy corn mix into white candy melts. Stir just to combine.
- Spread onto a parchment-lined baking sheet or sheets.
- I had to use two pans because I can’t get a big pan into my side-by-side freezer.
Step 3 – Sprinkle on more candy & nuts and drizzle on chocolate.
- Sprinkle the reserved 3/4 cup of candy corn mixture on top.
- Drizzle on the dark cocoa candy melts. I poured my candy coating into a pastry bag to drizzle, but you can just dip a fork into the candy and drizzle it over the bark.
- Freeze for 10-15 minutes until the candy is set.
Step 4 – Break the chocolate into chunks.
- Allow the chocolate to come to room temperature.
- Break up into pieces.
- Store in an airtight container for up to a month.
This would make a nice candy to serve at Thanksgiving too and it makes great gifts. Package the bark in tins, boxes, or cellophane bags for either holiday.
