It’s inevitable that you will always have leftover Halloween candy. What better way to use it all up by making candy bark. What I love about this recipe is that it’s so versatile. You can use any combination of your favorite candy bars, nuts, and candies.
Simply melt chocolate and pour it onto a baking sheet, while the chocolate is still warm throw your chopped candy on top and press into the chocolate. Let it set up then drizzle white chocolate all over. I have found an easy way to drizzle the white chocolate is to put the white chocolate into a piping bag, and microwave it in 30 second intervals, massaging the bag till melted. Then cut the tip off and drizzle away.
This is a basic recipe, feel free to change it up with whatever candies and nuts you have on hand.
- 1 pound bittersweet chocolate chips
- 12 fun size Kit-Kat bars, chopped
- 12 fun size Peanut Butter Cups, chopped
- 1/2 cup M&M’s, coarsely chopped
- 1/2 cup Peanut M&M’s, coarsely chopped
- 3 ounces white chocolate, chopped or use the chips
- Line baking sheet with foil. Stir chocolate chips in heavy medium saucepan over low heat until melted and warm (not hot) to touch. Pour chocolate onto foil; spread to 1/4-inch thickness (about 12×10-inch rectangle). Sprinkle with Kit-Kat’s, Peanut Butter Cups, and M&M’s, press to adhere making sure all pieces touch the melted chocolate. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes to let it set up.
- Put white chocolate in heavy small saucepan. (or use my trick above with piping bag and microwave) Stir constantly over very low heat until chocolate is melted and warm to touch. Remove from heat. Dip spoon into chocolate; wave from side to side over bark, creating zigzag lines. Place in refrigerator for another 30 minutes then take out and break into misshapen pieces and serve.
