Spook-Chocula Halloween Candy Bark!

Chocolate Bark & Witches Brooms & Graveyard Pudding, Oh My!

Me and my daughter Eve made a few of our favorite Halloween treats for our Halloween Party that includes family, friends and neighbors to enjoy, as well as for this week's Spooktacular Edition of Macaroni Kid Fairfield.


Not surprisingly, the treats we made all consist of chocolate as a main ingredient.  And to prove that my daughter Eve's love for chocolate is alive and well, the recipe for Spook-Chocula Bark (Chocolate Candy Bark) included 4 types of chocolate, and, M&M Halloween Candies!  I wanted to go with rich, dark chocolate and one of the chocolate bars we used to make the bark was black currant.  The taste rendered from these berries is a pungent, musky flavor with fruity undertones.   And best of all, this recipe is super easy for busy moms!

Get the kids involved in making the Spook-Chocula Halloween Candy Bark recipe and let us know what you think!  Witches Brooms and Graveyard Pudding will follow in another post.

Ingredients:

8 oz chocolate
2-3 hand fulls of Halloween Candy

Chop chocolate bars into small bits.  Put chocolate into a double boiler and allow to melt completely.  On a parchment lined baking sheet, pour melted chocolate onto paper in the center, and with a spatula, spread melted chocolate to form a large rectangle.  Add Halloween candy treats of your choosing.  Allow to cool for at least 2 hours, and cut into medium-large, imperfect rectangles and squares.  Serve at room temperature.
